Dear Dan and family. I was so sad to hear about Jimmys passing.I often think of all the special clients I took care of.The first to come to mind was my Lora Mae .Jimmy was often around and did his best to take care of her and made sure everyone else did although she was so easy to love.Once in a while Jimmy and I would disagree but were always able to remain friends.I will be praying for peace in your hearts at this very difficult time.I wish I could do something to help you all,but I know the good LOrd has it in control. My best to all and PLEASE give my girl and Cynthia gentle hugs for me.

My Sweet Jimmy, I miss you so much already. I was looking forward to our next hang out, bringing apple pie and sparkling cider to you in Southport...
I still have a Wal-Mart gift card you gave me and my necklace that I will cherish forever. You are so precious to me and I look forward to when we see each other again. I love you and you know little Ruby does too ❤

Jimmy was a fine Christian man and a wonderful brother-in-law; we've always loved him and been proud to have him in the family, and even since we moved to Missouri we've remained in close contact. We're sorry we're not able to be there for the service, but we send our prayers and love to all.

I've know Jimmy for 32 years. We ran rescue together. Hey was a good man and always willing to help you any way he could. In the last few years I helped him anyway I could . You were like family to me. You will be missed.

I had the pleasure of working with Jimmy at Sunny Point and can say that he was an honest and hard working individual that I've ever worked with.
He will be missed; but I know he is in a better place now.
My condolences to the family. God bless you.
