Jimmy was Arkansas State Wrestling Champ and used to beat me like a drum. We went to the Kennedy-Nixon Debates and were members of the Delta Sigma Delta fraternity at Texarkana Junior College. I met Betty through Jimmy and she was a one-in-a-million person. There were classical Greeks and some of the finest citizens Texarkana ever produced. God bless you, Mike Craig, Magnolia, Texas
