    Remember this nice man being our neighbor. His son Ken would babysit us at times.

    Dear sweet family, Uncle Jimmy was the best!” Such a true Christian man who lived out his faith. Every conversation, he would talk about family. He was very proud of the Christians you are and of each of your families. You could hear his love for you all in his voice. He will be sorely missed. His home-going was a “great reunion day!” Please know you are in our hearts and our prayers. May you feel God’s presence and know His peace in the days to come. Prayerful thoughts. Teresa Ann & Doug
