    Linda and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Jimmie was a wonderful man with an infectious smile. He was a wonderful addition to the family. He and Linda created a beautiful loving family that was an example to others. I will think of him every time I have strawberry pie or banana pudding. You now have a wonderful guardian angel. He will be sorely missed. I will keep your family in my prayers.

    Mr Jimmy was a good man. I only knew him for a few years. He was the life of all the family gatherings I attended with family. He will be truly missed by all that knew him. He loved his sweets and like a big kid, tried to hide from his dear sweet wife. Every time I will make chicken and dumplings with cornbread I will be reminded how much you enjoyed. Rest high on that mountain, we will miss you Mr Jimmy.
