I am so very sorry. I am sure Dad (Wilmer Castle) was waiting to greet him with open arms when Jimmy arrived at the pearly gates. I have fond memories of Jimmy and Dad hanging together working and laughing. I remember the looooong trip to Florida that we took to visit family and Jimmy went along He livened up the trip immeasurably. My heart and prayers go out to all of his family and loved ones.

Ahhh Jimmy, a dear old soul!
Happy for you, you have moved on to your next estate, but none the less saddened by your departure.
For the past 10 years Jimmy has sat in the pew directly behind me at church (and though we dont have names on the pews) I suppose I will for at least a time, feel you belong there just the same.
Jimmy had a kind way about him, he always greeted me with a friendly "how you doing?" Or "it's good to see you" then followed by his iconic phrase, "Pretty Lady" :-)
I will never forget how Jimmy would make layer cakes for just about everyone and for nearly every social activity we had at the chapel. I've never been a big cake eater but in honor of Jimmy, i'll have to bake one and eat a slice to boot!
'Till we meet again Brother~

James and Kevin,
Big Jimmy left me with so many wonderful memories! He was one of a kind with a heart of gold! Heaven, I am certain, is still celebrating his arrival! May God be with you both until you meet again.
