My condolences to his family. He truly a wonderful grandfather to his four grandchildren. He also treated mine and my husband's kids like his own grandchildren. My sister - in - law Amy would always tell me funny stories on the phone of things he was doing after I and my family had to move away from Alabama. It breaks my heart that due to circumstances we won't be able to make it to the graveside service. Our hearts and prayers will be there.

Uncle Jim was one of the kindest souls I have ever known. We had so much fun having family dinners with his Sister and Nephew Brian. He always loved my cooking and I loved cooking for him. He always treated me with kindness, as he did everyone he crossed paths with. He deserves peace and happiness, and he will have that now. Love you Uncle Jim.

So sorry to hear about Jimmy's death. We were school classmates. He was always a good friend to me and everyone else. He played basketball with Bobby, my husband.

His brother, Warren, married my husband's cousin. He seemed like family.

Bobby and I will keep the family in our prayers. May God bless all of you.

My prayers and heart go to his family. He treated me like family. I know his daughter Amy always spoke highly of him. When we where all out together he would always call and check on her every two to three hours. Didn't understand it then but I do now. RIP Mr. Jim
