Jimmy was my first cousin, so we played together for endless hours as children. Although he was younger, I know he taught me things about living on a farm I had never been exposed to. We loved our childhood summers of camping with the family at Albert Pike; swimming, tubing down the Little Missouri, getting ice cream treats at the Lowery's store, and enjoying great food around the campfire. Bless him and all his family. Sweet memories will live on for always.

I'll always remember how much fun Jimmy had boating and having cook outs for all his family and friends. He will be missed. God bless you.
