  1. It will be the little things that you will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. In time, the memories of these little things will push away the pain and bring you comfort.
    Syl & John, Missy Goodman, Rodney Friensehner

  2. We were shocked to hear of Jimmy’s passing. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this terribly sad time. Love to all!! Patti

  3. My love and prayers go Jimmy’s family, his parents, sisters and brothers.I love you all and you are often in my thoughts.
    My memories of summer vacations at Uncle Jims and Aunt Dianes home with Jimmy and Cheryl along with my sister Barabara are full of berry picking, walking along train tracks, climbing trees and eating green apples.
    I treasure these, they are part of who I am.
    I thank God for the people he has placed in my life, and as he promises us, we’ll be together again.
