I will miss my great uncle for as long as I live. He was always a mentor for me, and a darn good tennis player too. I remember going to his house in Mobile when I was younger. He used to warn me about alligators in his lake, haha. He was such a great uncle, father, brother, and inspiration. I love you Jimmy.

I am saddened by the passing of Dr Green. I've known him for over 30 years. He was a good man and always went beyond the call of duty for his patients. I consider myself very fortunate to have known him. He will be missed by so many. Prayers go out to his family.

Iboo,

Brenda and I just found about about Jimmy through Marilyn. I am in shock to learn about this, and will pray for your sweet family. I remember my cousin Jimmy as I was growing up and always looking up to him. Green and Mitchie's house was a gathering place for our family, and Jimmy's room was the coolest room in the house. We are so sorry for you loss and I'll give you a call as soon as I can locate your number. I'll also pass along to Jim Summerlin who will also want to know. Love to your family from the Schells. You are in our prayers.

Carlos de Sanctis,M.D.

Iboo and everyone- I am so terribly sorry that Jimmy had to get sick and struggle so. However, I know you had a rich and wonderful life... and, how fortunate you were to walk the path together. He was just too young and vibrant and filled with life to leave us now. I heard the service today was wonderful, and I regret that i was totally tied up at school and unable to be there. I do hope to see you soon. You are in my heart, and I love you. With faith and hope for all that is to come... Love, Betty Stone
