Jimmy, I will always have fond memories of you and your basement herpetarium in Amberly. You'll always be that young adventurous kid to me. Rest now. Your godfather Jim.

Jim- What an angel you are! No words can explain what you did to save a life. You will be greatly missed. My family will miss you and the hunting trips you spent with them. It was a little scary when my boys and HUSBAND went hunting but you kept an eye on them (especially the HUSBAND)!

Rest in Peace and please keep an eye on my hunting crew. Love, Nonie, Jeff, Martha, John, and Patrick

Jimmy when I talked with you Thursday I never imagined it would be our last! I remember all the great times we had when we were growing up! Playing in the creek, your treehouse and playing on the elevator! Such great memories! You are a true hero and will be missed by many! Rest in Paradise!
