When I think of Uncle Jimmy his beautiful smile and dimpled chin come to mind. Fond memories of my Father, Aunt Harriet and Uncle Jim all happily singing together. Remembering fun times shared at their home as a child growing up. Sorry I can't be there but Bill and I send our love and share in your sorrow. Love, Niece Marilyn Frankenfield Gray🌻❤
