Read with interest the obituary for Jimmy. Just know that my family is praying for all of you. Jimmy and I were in school together. He finished one year ahead of me. We had lots of good times together. He was a very serious person who loved to play the guitar, sing and entertain. Looking at his picture, I am a little jealous that he remained so young looking and had a head full of hair. Aging has not been so kind to me as far as outward appearances go. God Bless youall.
