My sweet, sweet, dear Uncle Jimmie. When I think of you, only the most wonderful memories come to mind. You had a smile that could brighten any room. Your laughter was just as contagious. When I was little you would always stop by any store just to buy me a Kit Kat. You would say, this candy is named after you! Little did I know that every time I saw that candy I would smile, and instantly you would come to my mind. Thank you for the memory. You are truly missed by me, and the entire family. Thank you for being a light in my life! I'll see you again, and maybe we can share a Kit Kat together in the Kingdom of Heaven. All my love, your Kit Kat Katrina

So sad to hear of the passing of Jimmy, he was such a sweet person...
I remember him from the old Gulf station, back when I was a teenager he used to always stop me & carry on foolishness, even back then...he never changed! Prayers for his family & all his many friends, I'm sure he will be missed!
