I am so sorry for your loss. Jimmie was one of the nicest, most helpful men I ever knew. He was a true and strong man of Faith and he had a means of showing and sharing that Faith in a nonconfrontational way. The man I always experienced was a man living in accord with the Holy Spirit, living in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, & self-control. I will always remember the the times and discussions at Grandma Doris's where Jimmie's words always had a certain meekness to them. Jimmie will truly be missed. Cherish all of the fond memories of the time you had with him, I know I will. May God, our Father in his Infinite Wisdom, Mercy, and Grace comfort you and make his Presence and Closeness true to you during these difficult times. May He place a hedge of angels around you to watch over you giving you constant strength and protection today and in the days to come. God Bless You.
