I was a good friend of Jimmy and he and I shared our faith very often. I am very certain of his going directly to Heaven in The Arms Of Jesus. I will miss him but I believe he is getting his reward! I will Pray for The Family!

Lived next door to Jimmy and his parents for a long time. Was a good neighbor and I know he and my mom are catching up on old times! Sorry I missed the original notice in July.
