    I know the grief is unbearable. I lost my husband last year. At least he is in a better place with no pain. Just take solace knowing he is watching over you.

    My brother and friend you will always be in my heart and not far away in my thoughts. I thank my Jesus you are not suffering and in pain any longer or dealing with the cares of this world. You are at home now with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and taking the Grand Tour of Heaven. I pray everyone that morns you will do as you did and accept Jesus as their Savior and live their life for him. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

    Jimmy was a sweet and funny man. I didn't know Jimmy long, but I loved him for his kindness, his humor and his integrity. He really loved his family and his work. I'll miss you, Jimmy!
