    I will truly miss my friend Jimmy . The man was a hoot seems like he was always smiling or laughing . He could out walk me any day and knew just where to find the big bucks on his favorite hunting grounds. Rest In Peace Jim

    My brother Jimmy was one of a kind and I will dearly miss him as well as all his family. He was very sensitive but didn’t want anyone to know. I love you Jimmy & I know you will be greeted by many loved ones in Heaven. Remember us Jimmy until we see you one day

    Uncle Jim, you were such a unique and spirited person who always made us laugh. I always think of you with a big smile on your face and greeting me as a “world traveler.” Despite you leaving us all too soon, I know your final journey, your big travel and your hunt with the master is worth it all. Until we see you again… P.S. you got one more hooked on hunting. Chris’ first one will be for you.
