"Remembering Jimmy moments" …... in his army uniform riding me in a wheel barrow and at age 3 how excited I was.....receiving mail and gifts from him during his service in the Phillipines …..seeing Nanny cry as she opened his letters and read each word again and again, so thankful to know he was alive....the look of pride in Grandaddy's face as he stood between both his sons dressed in uniform ready to serve our country bravely in WWII.... After his safe return his jeep was his constant companion until he met a beautiful young girl named Juanita...I remember the fairytale wedding when he married the love of his life. I was a young girl caught up in the magic of their ceremony....Sharing in the lives of their children and the many visits to their home and always made to feel welcome...Enriched by their presence and support throughout my life and the lives of my children....They were hands on loving and supportive throughout the years...Jimmy wore many hats - baseball, golfing, fishing, coaching, ministering, but the one that meant the most to me was that of Uncle. So long for now, Jimmy. Keep 'em smilin' in heaven...…. Love, Jean
