    Dear Aunt Jo and Family, deeply sorry to hear of Jimmy’s passing. We had so many wonderful times together growing up and I hold all those memories very dear. I wish we could have seen each other again in this life. I remember going to see him play baseball and going swimming at Magnesia Springs. Granddaddy used to give him a quarter to massage his head and Jimmy was so good about doing it! We were born the same year and finally got to go to school together in high school. I loved him like a brother. Life is all too short and even though I haven’t seen you all in a long time I think of you all frequently. My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this very sad time. With love, Cousin Lynda

    Tim, Jordyn and I are very sorry that you are enduring this trial. Even though we have hope of seeing our dead loved ones again, it still hurts. Romans 12.15 states we rejoice with people who rejoice and weep with people who weep. This is so true when our dear friends lose a loved one to the greatest enemy death. We love you guys very much.
