Grateful to have known you Jimmy. I have many fond memories of times we got together over the years and talked together and ate together. I just enjoyed being around you very much. I am sad to not have you here anymore, but I know you are resting well in a far better place. (Praying for your family even as I write this...that God will grant them peace through the heartache.) ~Wayne

I love the good man you have been,
I love your sense of fun, which taught me to laugh,
Your honesty, your strength and integrity,
Your loyalty to our family,
And the faith you freely shared.
I will always miss you, but rejoice that you are with the Father.
