I was so sorry to hear of your husband’s death. I had known him since our early school years at Beech Grove. He was a wonderful talented person and I feel fortunate to have known him. My husband,Garland Brown, who died last year considered Jimmy a very special friend. Please know that your family is very much in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
Sheila and Boys,
I worked right beside Jimmy for many years. He was one of the “good” guys and it was a pleasure for me to know him. He definitely loved his family and I know you all will miss him very much. He had a great sense of humor that would rival anyones. May God grant you peace and love during this terrible time for you all.
THE FAMILY HAS A DEEPEST SYMPATHY………
