On a professional level in many ways Jimmy Alverson is the name and face of our company. When one thinks of GH Metals they think of Jimmy Alverson and when one thinks of Jimmy Alverson they think of GH Metals. In many ways when our company lost Jimmy it lost its identity. If our company was Progressive Jimmy would be our Flo. If our company were State Farm Jimmy would be our Jake. And if our company were Aflac Jimmy would be our duck. Our company simply will not be the same without Jimmy Alverson! On a personal note I wish to share some words from the Bible found in the book of 1 Samuel 20:18; " Then Jonathan said to David, tomorrow is the new moon: and thou shalt be missed, because thy seat will be empty." Jimmy we miss you buddy!
... we can only hope (& work really diligently) to achieve the honor and respect that Jimmy Alverson has earned in his lifetime. God Bless you Jimmy. You could have set the bar for the rest of us so much lower. Instead, you lived the life of a gentleman, a leader, a servant and a friend. Well done Jimmy ... rest in peace.
Every morning Jimmy would come by and say to me "Jerome can I get a little extry effort from you today?" I'm going to miss hearing that. You've been a blessing to us all, and i can't wait to hear those words again.
Jimmy was a dear friend of mine. His encouraging words and his prayers got me through a lot of tough times. He was truly a GOOD MAN! He NEVER complained, and he was ALWAYS SMILING no matter how bad he felt! Such an inspiration! I will cherish his friendship forever! I knew he was a real TRUE friend... trustworthy, sincere, loyal, and most of all GODLY! I miss him so much! So blessed to have had him as a friend!
I have never known a finer man or a better human being than Jimmy. He was true to his word; his yes was yes, and his no was no. He saw the best in everyone; he was the kind of man we all want to be, but so few of us are willing to be no matter the cost.....a truly wonderful human being. If you were blessed to have encountered Jimmy in your life, then consider yourself a lottery winner!
Jimmy was a wonderful person.. kind to everybody...I was blessed to had him as my Sunday school teacher and assistant preacher..I will miss him and always remember how kind and what a wonderful person he was..I know he is healed now and I will see him again one day. Praying for you all. Love Rae Ann Shad
Frankie we are both so sorry for your lose. Mr. Jimmy was one of the nicest men that we know. We always loved sitting with you both at the football games.
In the short few years I knew Jimmy, I saw a kind man who loved and honored God. He loved and served people. I saw a humble man whose character inspired me and many others.
His hope is now complete!
Jimmy was one of the best men I’ve ever met. I loved it when he said people needed to explain things in cornbread language! True, loyal, & faithful until the end! My life is better because I met him!
I worked with Jimmy alverson for many years at the Gas House, our condolences to his family
We have walked many a mile in the last 20 years, some through the water, some through the flood, some through the fire but every inch through The Blood! I marveled at the way you would take God's Word and explain it through farming, growing plants and animals. You was Country and Cornbread, always Jimmy all the time. I envied your pure heart that somehow was untouched by the evil in this world even before you asked in to live inside. A piece of me died yesterday. One one side, I'm broken, weeping, a wreck. But on the other side at peace, joyful knowing you are finally free of the burdens of this life. You have fought a good fight, you have finished the course and most of all kept the faith. I watched the first time the Holy Spirit moved on you to minister and sat in awe of the miracle working power of God bringing forth the manifold depths of His Word through the mouth of a man who felt unworthy to be called a Preacher. I love you Jimmy and you are closer to me know than yesterday. You are with God, He lives inside of me. So there is only a thin veil separates us know and when I walk behind it, maybe we can talk awhile!
Jimmy brightened everyone's day. He will be greatly missed!
Been my friend for many years have prayed with Jimmy, laughed, cried, had many good times with him. What a dear friend and consider him just like a brother. He will be sadly missed.
A friend in all times, a brother in Christ in all things. a truly fine man & on that will be missed till i see him on the other side. I know he will be waiting for a lot of us when we make that journey home.
One of the finest men God ever put in my path; I am truly blessed to have known him...
