He was a wonderful man if God! Many years ago helping my brother to get help in his addiction and showing him God was the answer.

We were young- about 6 or 7 years old. I was excited to see my cousin. It had been quite some time since we had visited each other. Butch- I always called him Yogi and I had fun together. I trusted him- Yogi was a little mischievous but was so much fun to hang out with!! He called me outside and opened the trunk of his Dad's car. He shared with me they had some great tasting chocolate covered raisins from Chattanooga and he was eager for me to taste them. I ate a few...well - together we finished off the little container. Once it was empty Yogi showed me the label which read "Chocolate Covered Ants".
He had a good Not so much!!!! I cried a little.
To his daughters, brothers and other family and friends- I am sorry for your loss. Will see him again in Heaven!!!
Rest in peace, Yogi!!

The Lord called home a good man this week. Jim was a great friend, brother, father, and grandfather. I thank you myself for our talks and jokes between each other when we spoke and times we seen each other. I will continue the promise I made to make sure your lovely daughter Amber and angel grand daughter Ava have the best life possible and I will always take care of them and look after them as long as I'm here. Rest in peace Jim 🙏🙏❤

I love you dad. I'm glad you finally got your wings , but I'm broken those wings took you far away from me. Thank you for being the most unselfish dad of all time, for teaching me how to ride a bike , roller skate , write bible verses when I did wrong lol , how to study , be academically successful , and most importantly how to have a pure heart and soul. I'll love you forever dad ❤😭
