    You are all in my prayers. Jimmy meant the world to me, and was there for me when I lost my father. He was a very understanding boss, and one that gave me a chance to grow in my career. I will always remember him.

    Jimmy was a wonderful person. He always would make you feel at ease.He had a gentle and caring voice. It would never fail...if Jimmy was around he'd be saying "hey how are you doing" and he took the time listen to your answer even though he was trying to put out one fire after another in his busy job.He has been truly missed at SECU. May his soul now rest in peace.

    heartfelt condonences. I worked with Jimmy at the SECU from '77-79. and played softball for him for several years..I learned a lot from him , always have thoughts of him, had run into him a few times over the years , but never really had time to sit down and talk. can remember fishing trips with him and Donnie out to his father's at the coast. Cindy I wish i could be there, but prior commitments will keep me away, but all of you are in my thoughts and prayer.. keith jackson apex,nc
