I loved to hear his stories about Bear Bryant and Alabama. He married into the Mott family and fit in immediately. Sue and I were 1st cousins and very close. I loved Jimmy too. I believe I saw him last at Mott reunion in 2010. He wasn’t able to come these past years and we really have missed him. You are in our prayers, Rick and Vicki. We love y’all and “Jimmy”. ROLL TIDE. NOW HE AND DAVID MOTT CAN ARGUE ABOUT BAMA AND OLE MISS.
