Jim Layton will be remembered for a long time, by all of his friends at TMC Rehab in Denison, Tex. He never pushed himself on anyone, but was always there, with a cheerful greeting or word of encouragement. Sharing his faith with others, was refreshing. Hope there's a special place in heaven, for this sweet friend to us all.

One of his "exercising" friends,
Janell Carraway

I will miss the numerous phone conversations that I had with Uncle Jimmy over the last few years. I could always count on his unique perspective and good advice. He was such a genuine individual and he had such an amazing life history. May God bless you, Uncle Jimmy.

Jim was an outstanding gentleman. Always had a smile on his face and a kind word. What a legacy he has left to his family with his love, ethics, morals and general love of life. We could not think of a nicer, kinder or a more gentle man than Jim! We always enjoyed our visits with him and loved sitting and catching up. He will truly be missed by us, as well as the Denison and Borger communities and his friends. He has touched our lives and we are proud to have called him our friend.
