I was saddened to read "Jimmy's" obituary today. Although I had not send Jimmy in quite a number of years, we did share a school bus ride to and from school for at least ten years. I always knew him to be a kind hearted gentleman and I enjoyed his company. Mr. Billy built our chicken house back in the fifties, and I have two utility buildings that we bought from you'll that are in my yard today. Mary Jane and Barbara, I remember the both you. My thoughts and prayers are with you today and to Jimmy's entire family. Sincerely, Anne Roper Hofrichter
