I am so very sorry for your loss. May you cherish the wonderful memories you have of Jimmy during this difficult time and find comfort in the words found at 2 Cor. 1: 3,4 where God’s word says” Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our trials”.

Jimmy, and I have been friends since we were teenagers. I moved in next door to his family when I was 14, and he was 13. In later years I married his sister, and became his Brother in Law. Mine, and Jimmy's life had many parallels. It is hard to think about not having him to talk to, and spend time with. I will miss him very much.

Herbert Hilderbrand, Savannah, Georgia

The first time I saw my wife now of 41 year's he was getting something out of he's wallet I was oiling for him in 1976 at Union Camp paper mill it was his stepdaughter Teresa. He and I was all ways messing with each other. I told him I was going to marry her someday. He stood up with a very serious and bad look on his face and said BOY I'll Kill your ass if you every come around my house. Well I finally did marry her. And he was the best Friend, Father in law anyone will ever know. I will always love you Papa I know your in a better place now and we will see you again. Gary Mock
