What a sweet friend! He always had a joke or story to make us laugh. And boy could he detail a car! My cars looked awesome when he was done! I know he truly loved the Lord & is standing face to face with Him now. Nora my heart & prayers are with you & your family. I am so blessed to have had you both in my life.

Well Jimmy, you made it home. I can only imagine all who were waiting for you at the golden gates, but most of to see JESUS face to face.
I won’t forget the movie nights we had with you and oh my goodness all the laughing till we cried.
Forever in my heart. Your one and only...... Tammy Fay.
