Jimmy was such a special person - no one else like him. he had the soul of a wise old man in a young man's body. So glad he was a part of my life when I really needed him. The world lost an amazing man - love you Jimmy.

Paula,

I just wanted to say how sorry I was that Jimmy has passed. I appreciate everything you and Jimmy did for Linny and the girls over the years. I would've loved to have attended his service, but I'm scheduled to work today in Nashville. You'll be in my thoughts.

I went by Ann Camille Hale and I met Jim In high school when I was 15 years old. He was 16 and played saxophone in the school band. My best friend Anita Wood was a majorette and she introduced me to Tom Lindley (also in the band). It was through Tommy that I met his brother Jim. I quickly realize my interest lay with the older of the two Lindley boys. Jim became my first love. He gave me the nickname Little Red Haired Girl and would address notes to me as LRHG. Since I was in the drill team, we both enjoyed performing at the Friday night football game's halftime shows. Other than Anita, he also became my best friend. He was so sweet to write me poems and how I enjoyed listening to him serenade me. We found a lovely connection as we would talk every chance we had.
Jim was such a kind soul and my memories of him are embedded into my heart. I still have the two rings he gave me. One was an opal ring in the shape of a 4 leaf clover he gave as a Christmas present. He had tied it on his family's Christmas tree and had me look for it. That was so much fun and such a surprise. He gave me another ring that is truly dear to my heart. On my 16th birthday he presented a gold ring that spelled out LOVE. Again another wonderful surprise. My senior year I listed my favorite memories as Jim, The summer of 72 (when I met Jim), Chicago (Jim's and my favorite band) Band Trips & Drill Corps(always with Jim), J. Sax Esq. (what Jim's friends named him), Anita and all the fantastic years at Southern HS. I think you can clearly see what a significant part of my young life he was and I will never forget him. Rest in peace my dear sweet Jim! Thank you for loving me. And Thank you Tommy for the introduction. You rest in peace as well. I'm glad you are together again with your Dad. My sincerest condolences.
