It is hard to believe Jimmy is gone. I remember way back in high school when Nelda and Jimmy were dating - and he let his cousin tag along. Jimmy and Nelda survived all the long odds in marrying young. They were truly an amazing success story - leading wonderful Christian lives, working hard to raise two fantastic children and save for retirement . Jimmy was so skilled with his hands &
always humble and loving. Jimmy, you left far too young and had so much more to give. Miss you, cousin.
