I first met Jimmy when I was only 12. Over the many years I was around i always knew him to be very kind and a great family man. His big smile was ever present! I know he loved the people of Faith Outreach and they loved him and Patsy. Patsy spent last weekend with me and It was precious to catch up on the past 30 years of their life and ministry together. Jimmy leaves a great legacy of love and service to God which should encourage and challenge each person who loved and respected him. Jamie, Matthew, and Janny, you were so blessed to have an honorable father who showed you devotion and love of God and Family. Teach your children as he taught you. Take care of you and your sweet and powerful momma!
