To the Family of Jimmy Ray Smith, our heart felt sympathy goes out to his precious wife and family. He was so very proud of them and would let you know it. Jimmy was a dear Christian friend and always carried a smile on his face. We felt it a privilege to have him as a friend. Jimmy now has finished his work here on this Earth and has been called to a Higher Place where he will pass thru those Golden Gates and sing with the Angels. May God wrap His Loving Arms around Charlotte and Family as they begin their journey of Grief for their Loved One. Rest In Peace Jimmy. You will be missed. Janis Latimer and Jim McGuire.

At our latest dance I walked by him a few times to get food. Every time he had a smile on his face and you could see the joy he was having. I stopped to chat with him on one of the trips. Jimmy was such a sweet man. It wont be the same without him there with his infectious smile and joy. Many yellow rocks to you and your family.

Little Jimmy, not enough kind words can be said about you. I enjoyed working with you and I enjoyed running into you at P3 for lunch. I also enjoyed your quick whit and bright smile! You were always such a jokester and could make anyone chuckle.
Hope you're resting peacefully and dancing in the sky!

I am so very sorry for your loss. My family and I had the pleasure to meet Jimmy and his family at my father's church back in the day. He always met you with the biggest smile and always had something up his sleeve! :) He really was one of a kind. My condolences to Charlotte and the family. You are in my prayers.

Our hearts are so saddened with the sudden passing of Jimmy. He was such a kind and sweet person. Jimmy always greeted me, 'Hello, Ms. Wiltse" … along with a smile and a hug. We will miss him SO much at our Swinging Stars Square Dance Club dances. Our deepest sympathy and prayers to Charlotte and the family. Your square dance family is here for you and will help you in any way we can … I know I speak for each of us!
