Mitzie, David, Hillary, Dallas, Norma, Randy and others in the familly: How well I remember Jimmie and the families, usually two sitting at the back of the Worship Center on Sunday mornings. It was a thrill for me to see you, and especially a special Bellaie policeman. I count it a privilege to have been your pastor for those years.

As mentioned on the phone, God will continue to give each of you many memories of Jimmy, all of them good. Cherish them, remember them and continue to receive more as the Holy Spirit makes them real to you.
