My mom your mom’s neighbor and cousin always spoke of your mom Minnie’s love for you and my mom, Caretta Bonds would hold money for Minnie so she wouldn’t spend it - Minnie always bought $100 worth of groceries in the 1950’s when you came home to visit! We were always so proud of you cousin, Little Jimmy Dickens! Rest In Peace! We all love you today & always!

When the Tennessee General Assembly was invited to celebrate Christmas with Little Jimmy Dicken's family. WOW! He really is little. But that beautiful white 10 gallon hat with the Shriner's regalia was really COOL!

May you continue to rest in peace with the hope of being raised in GLORY!!!

May the Lord continue to be with Little Jimmy Dickens family! It's a full year later and I still think of him. My Daddy loved his music and I got a real kick out of it. Will never forget his "Guitar Mailbox"! He and my Mother-in-law were the same height. Both-little but powerhouses! God be with all of you and my prayer is that he is with the Lord above and having a wonderful time worshipping at His feet!
