    Jimmy and Judy were my very first friends. I’ve held this memory in my heart for over 60 years. My parents were friends with Dwight and Sylvia. I’m so happy I got to visit with Jimmy last year for a few minutes. My prayer is that he is resting safe and loved in arms of his creator. Blessings for healing for each of you. Judy, I would love to hear from you.

    To the Fleshour family, I am so sad to hear about Mr. Fleshour.
    I met him through First Christian Church. May God Bless you all, keep you safe, and give you peace.

    Sharon, I am so sorry. I am glad that I knew Jim and you back in the far-out-groovy 1970s jamming with guitars, synthesizers, and tape recorders. Jim got me interested in old movies. “Shane” is still one of my favorites after Jim watched it with me and pointed out how artistic it is. I love you all.

    I remember Jimmy from Sylvan Hills High, so sorry to hear of his passing. Praying for your family.

    Jimmy was a good friend to the Sylvan Hills Class of 73. He was my classmate in sixth grade. He always sat by me in school when we sat in alphabetical order. His name Freshour always came before Gentry. Fond memories of our times together. Prayers and blessings for your family.
