Sorry, but I don't remember Jimmie.  But he sounds like a great husband and Father.  I do send my thoughts and prayer for the whole family.  I know the family will miss him, but he will always live in your hearts.  Judy (Grace) Hewkin

Anytime one our classmates passes it leaves a hole in our hearts. I knew him only from the yearbook but he was a bear cat forever.

I would run into Jimmie from time to time in the vocational building on my way to art class. Very sweet guy. Sounds like he enjoyed a good life. He deserved it.
