    Sandra & Family, so sorry for your loss. I will be thinking and praying for you all in the coming months. I had made other plans and couldn’t come to the memorial. My thoughts were with you all though. The last time I saw y’all was at Cissy’s birthday party in Malvern. When y’all got ready to go Jimmy walked up to me and said he was sorry we didn’t get to visit, but we will catch up next time. We will all miss him . Love to you all.

    So sorry to hear about Jim’s passing. I worked with him for years at American Freightways. He loved to talk about music and loved playing basketball. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.
