Dear Bumbee,
It’s just me, your little sister. My world just got turned upside down but I’m so thankful that God gave me you for all those years. I could tell you anything and I always felt better when I left you. As a child, you carried me on your shoulders and I knew you would never let me fall and even now you have never let me down. I’m gonna miss you terribly and you will always be on my mind and in my heart ❤️. Thank you for loving me.
I Love You, Barbara(sugar)

Uncle jimmy,
You will be greatly missed by me. We had so many great memories over the years it’s hard to pick just one. You where always there to laugh with me in times of joy and cry with me in times of pain. You where truly on of the rocks in my life I always knew I could lean on. You taught me a lot of things that I carry with me each and every day.How to work hard and how to love people for who they are regardless of differences .just to name a few. I will miss you “jimmy son”. Jo-jo

Thank you for Loving me unconditionally. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and a part of your Family. I lost a part of my heart when you left and it will never mend. I will always and forever more be yours. I Love you Jimmy. Until I see you again. I will keep all of our Precious memories close in my heart because they are what will keep you alive for me. And I know you loved me back. I want to ask why? But I already know you went home the way you would have wanted to go. You are truly my guardian Angel now. Watch over me and Smile everyday. I love you always and forever

I remember Jimmy from “back in the day” when he was a cute little skinny guy dating my sister, Vivian. They eventually married and had my precious Dana and Todd. The marriage didn’t last but what did last for me was that Jimmys most memorable legacy is the birth of my niece and nephew. They have become awesome adults that Jimmy could be proud of. My deepest sympathies to all of Jimmy’s children and his sisters, Virginia and Barbara.
