Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Jimmy was a wonderful person. We went to school several years together and it was a shock to hear of his death. May God keep you all in his hands and heal your hearts by knowing that he needed Jimmy by his side.

I have delivered to Mr. Jim supplies from Breathing Care for two years now. Everytime I saw Mr. Jim it was always a hello and a kind word. It was good to know him. My condolences to his friends and family

My memory of Jimmy goes back to when he was about 7 years old and I was 13. There was a knock on my front door and I opened it to Jimmy bearing a purple stoned ring for me and asking me to be his girlfriend. I took the ring, not knowing really what to say, and I kept the ring all these years. We lived in the same neighborhood at that time and I still have good memories of my childhood friend. Jimmy will be missed.

I am so sorry for your loss. It makes me think back to when I was younger and y'all would come for Christmas and jimmy would take me out and spoil me. For instance he took me out and bought me my first muzzle loader so that he and I could hunt that week. I also remember laughing at him making fun of people. I think that's where I got it from lol. So I'm gona celebrate his life. I know he loved The Lord and is in a beautiful place right now.
