What a handsome, happy, easy-going guy. Always enjoyed spending time, my cousin, Jan, and I, and all. Got to see Jim last year when Jan came to visit. Neumann was a great place with a lot of good folks. God bless all the Rodgers- Steve, my classmate, I am so sorry. Peace be with you all.
With much love, Sally

Jimmy was one of the greatest guys I've known, he was a gentleman's gentleman. The world has lost a really great guy. Spent alot of time with Jimmy in our younger years before we moved to Florida. Communicated through Facebook the last few years. He will be missed. Praise God he is no longer suffering. May he rest in eternal peace. My prayers for Jimmy and the family.
