Uncle Jimmy, We will miss you but we know your no longer in pain, resting peacefully in heaven with all our other family that has left us. I will always remember you catching me kissing Kevin in Mom's driveway when you came to visit one night and said to me: "hey girl stop that." You'll always be remembered as my fun loving uncle. Enjoy you cups of coffee with Granddad. Love you, Cheryl and Kevin Black

Wat a friend I had in Uncle Jimmy.
And what a friend he has in Jesus.
Jesus decided he needed him more than me I suppose.
My loss. Heaven's gain. I'll miss you brother. Save me a seat!

What a very special loving person that will be missed a lot! I will always remember his smile at church when I would sing! I knew when I saw him there that he would listen and take In every word I sang even If I would mess up he would just smile and after church he would tell me what a great job I did! He would say to me that the lord heard you today and would smile! I will always have wonderful memories of him and my prayers go out to Eve Mary and Jen and the rest of the family that God will show them some precious thoughts of him daily! We love you all and God bless!
