Jim was a kind and warm soul. His band played at our daughter's wedding. I will surely miss passing him almost every day on the causeway, him pulling his trailer and me pulling mine. He will leave an unfillable void. Godspeed Jim, ride with the angels.

Pam & Family, there are not enough words to express how much Jim meant to us and how much he will be missed! As devoted fans of Maurice and Doubleday, it was our honor to have spent some of the very best years of our lives in his company. He was truly a gift to the world, a world class singer as well and to know him was to love him! It was our great honor to call him a friend all these years. Will love him and his music as long as we live! May God be with you all and bring peace to your hearts!

Pam. Joye and I are so, so sorry to hear this sudden news of Jimmy‘s passing. At least I got to talk with him after he came home. I can’t imagine what you have gone through since then. Jimmy was my soulmate and brother for many many years. I can’t tell you what avoid that leaves in my house and in my heart. He was just here a couple weeks ago and then this. Devastating news. Godspeed my brother.
