Kay, I was stunned to hear of Jimmy's death and you and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers. I grew up going to school and the Baptist church with Jimmy. His mother taught me in Sunday School at the First Baptist. I also graduated from high school with Jimmy and so I know what a wonderful person he was. I read the obituary and it sounds like he was also a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. I know you and your family will miss him terribly because he died too young. May the Lord comfort you during this most difficult time. Pattie Dyar Gilbert

Kay, I am so sorry to hear of Jimmy's untimely death! I just today saw it on the website and I regret that I could not see you in person to show you my heartfelt sympathy. I cannot imagine how the children are handling it. Jimmy was a wonderful guy and I'm sure a wonderful husband, daddy and granddad! Our Lord and Savior will sustain you with his grace! May God Bless and protect you and your family and rest assured that you will be reunited with Jimmy again. Proverbs 3: 5 & 6. Love, Julie Brook Hatcher
