Jimmy and family,

So sorry for your loss. Death is certain for all of us...we all know that. But when we lose a loved one it doesn't make it any easier to deal with. As we walk through this life here on earth, we have to be mindful of the fact that this is our temporary home. Uncle Jim has gone to his permanent home to be with the love of his life, Laveda. He will be missed.

When I was just a kid, Uncle Jim and Laveda would come and get me and bring me back to Tyler with them. I loved to stay with them....it was a mini vacation for me. They would take me out to eat...usually Mexican Food. A real treat for me because we never went out to eat. We would laugh and have lots of fun. A time in my childhood I will never forget.
Love always,
Doris

Jimmy and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Jimmy will be dearly missed. He was a great man whom worked hard and was loved by all who met him. I am so sorry I can't be with you at this time if there was anyway you know I would come running as I always have. There are only fond memories of a man I always thought of as my other Dad so many rush through my mind in the late hours . Virginia thank you so much for all the care giving and patience , you have been a blessing to Uncle Jimmy.
Love you Bubba,
Darlene & family
