Dear Jimmy, so enjoyed our visit a few months ago. I always thought you did a wonderful job raising Cathy, Charles, Wallace, Robert and William. You were a great dad. Rest in peace. I will miss you, but will see you again in heaven. Love you

He was always good to me and always spoke. He will never be forgotten. Last time I saw him was on Terra birthday he was happy and smiling he loved his family.

The last time I saw Uncle Jimmy was 2007 and as he sat in my living room, I asked him to give my dad Herman a message when he sees him again one day. ( I hope he remembers) I'm sure he will.
RIP Uncle Jimmy
