Jimmie you will be missed! My visits with you and Rita where something special. I got to bring you my read hunting and fishing magazines as soon as I finished them knowing you looked forward to them. I have so many great memories of the things we talked about and felt so honored to know that you looked forward to our visits as much as I did. Over the years you were so good to my grandsons and for this I say "Thank You". You said more than once that to you they could do no wrong! They made a lot of trips down the sand road to find the right spot to hunt. They will forever be grateful for your generosity . You will always be Jimmie to me and never forgotten. RIP!
