Mrs. Jimerson was a very sweet and caring person. I was her caregiver while employed with Home Instead. She taught me simple recipes such as cake mix cookies and potato soup. I will always remember her. I send my condolences to Mrs. Carol and Mrs.Camille. I pray strength upon your entire family during this difficult time. Love Always....Shamica
