    I would just like to say to the family trust in the Lord & he will carry you thruogh the loss of your loved one. Jimmy will be greatly missed especially by me. Jimmy nicknamed me “Big Mama”. He knew Big Mama would make sure he was taken care of. I will miss his laughter, jokes and yes the hard times he would give his brother-n-law. My heart is heavy right now but I know Jimmy is in a better place and he was ready to go. If there is anything I can do for you all, please don’t hesitate to call “Big Mama”.
