Ms Jimmie was one of the sweetest and kindest people I have ever met. She was always positive and encouraging and went out of her way to help others. She is an inspiration to all who knew her and my life is better for having known her. We will miss her so much but I know that she is with Jesus and is now enjoying her eternal life with many rewards for loving the Lord and being a good witness and good example of how Jesus wants us to live.
