Dear Ginny and family: in any final analysis of one's life, it would be hoped that everyone would remember that individual as a Good Person. Those two words summed up my friend, Jimmy; he was a Good Person. People come in and go out of each other's lives. I'm thankful Jimmy was in my life; and, even though we hadn't seen much of each other over the years, I counted him as one of my very good friends. We went through a lot of good (and interesting) times way back then. RIP, my friend!

We knew Jim for 12 years since his son married our daughter. Jim was an amazing man that always had a smile on his face. Will cherish the memories at Christmas time when we all sang Christmas songs with him, Lee and Jerry. He may be gone from our sight, but will be forever in our hearts.

Jim and I share a love of music and got together at his home for jam sessions that will always be fond memories. His was such a kind soul who never had anything unkind to say about anyone. Awesome on guitar and he's a fellow "Lefty"! He is at peace now that his suffering has ended. Be filled with the Holy Spirit this Easter Season and know that he is in the loving embrace of our Lord and Savior.
