Jimmy was my uncle. We wasn't real close, but I loved him none the less. I will not be able to make the funeral.
I wish I could.
R.I.P Uncle Jimmy.

I am still in shock over the loss of my dear friend. Jim, was like a brother to me , I am deeply saddened and will miss him greatly. Jim loved his family and was an example to all of us. I am thankful Jim was also my brother in Christ, we talked about spiritual things often, and I will see him again one day.

Mr. Looney was one of the most caring, fun loving men I’ve ever met. Kate is my best friend, and she always had a very close, beautiful connection with her Dad. I loved Mr. Looney’s sense of humor, his ability to tell you the truth without skipping a beat, and the way he interacted with his family. Mrs. Looney and his children were always his top priorities, and his loving support for all of them was inspiring. We will all miss your ability to make us laugh while crying. It never really felt like a goodbye when you, Mrs. Looney, and Kate left from visiting Little Rock, and it doesn’t feel like a true goodbye now. I know you’re in heaven right now. Sending all my love. ❤️
