I have such fun memories with Jimmy. Those times of spear fishing on the Buffalo and deep frying that night. Running up and around the "hollers" on weekends. I always loved how he would let a Marshall boy come hang out in St. Joe. Back in those days that was not that popular! Jimmy also told the other boys to leave me be. See you soon in Heaven my old friend.
We are so sorry for your loss. Prayers for all of your family.

He was a dear friend to me when I lived in St Joe.. I can remember his smile and his kind voice. He will be missed greatly. Prayers for the family
My deepest condolences to Glenda and all the Family. Countless memories come back as I recall all the times we had together, Jimmy. Many memories in life I chose to supress, growing up, but these I do cherish. You, and your family, was like an extension of our own family body. You were like a brother in mischief and fun that, admittedly, I could not always create for myself. Thanks for being there in those times. Ralph (aka Doodlebug) as the nicknamed you started calling me that "stuck" with many.
Glenda and Leisha and Family,I am so sorry for your loss! I have so many memories of spending time with your family, and I grieve his loss even though it was so long ago. Jimmy was always quick with a smile and had some wisdom beyond his age. And that bobcat! I pray God’s comfort for your family and his strength to lift you up through this time!Karla
