    My Uncle was an inspiration to all that he touched throughout his life. I remember fondly growing up and helping him mow the hill in West Virginia when we lived with him and my grand parents. I know in recent years we lost touch, but I would follow my Aunt and see how he was happy. I am glad he is no longer in any pain and now and walking the streets of gold above with my mom and grandparents. Till we meet again, I love you Uncle Jimmy.


  4. Jerry & I are so sorry for the loss of our cousin; another link in our family has gone on to a better life. No more pain for Jimmy, instead a family celebration is going on with all of the ones that went on before him. RIP Jimmy, we will miss you.
