Jimmy was always so kind to me. That's the one thing that stands out, knowing him since I was a little girl. The last time I saw him was just over 2 years ago at Sheila's funeral and he hugged me like always. My heart goes out to his family, especially Gaynell.

Gaynell and family my heart goes out to y’all. Y’all were so good to us and treated us like locals when we first moved to Mentone. Grateful I got to know Jimmie and will miss seeing him about town. What a wonderful unique character. May y’all find the peace that passes all understanding.

We loved Uncle Jimmy. My boys especially loved him. They never got to know my dad because he died way to young. Uncle Jimmy would tell them stories about them growing up and working together when they were grown. He used to come home from the army and rock me when I was a baby and he’s the one who told me about my dad passing. I am glad he is healed and has no more pain but I will miss him. My heart goes out to my Aunt Gaynell, Stacie, Melissa and Lee. I love you all.
