    Jimmy was a man with such a big heart ❤️ so hard to choose just one memory to share I don't think I've met a man with such a big heart he was always there with a listening ear no matter who it was or what time it was. I know for certain this mans sense of humor can not be replaced he was definitely one of a kind. My heart goes out to his wife Becky his kids and grandkids. I love you all to pieces!! Dear Lord, please comfort those in grief, Love them, lift them, give relief For loss they’ve suffered, sadness felt; Make this sorrow slowly melt. Lord, let happy memories ease, Creating peace like a gentle breeze, And as you help them make it through. Draw them closer, Lord, to you. Sincere condolences on your loss.
