    Dear Betsy, Casey, Haley, Jimmie, and all the family.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God’s Love surround you and comfort you is my prayer. There’s a lot of things we don’t understand in this life, but “We know that all things work together for good, for those love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28. “The Lord giveth, and the Lord hath taken away. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.” Job l: 21. May God’s peace and strength be with you.

    With Love,

    Carolyn Forrest

    I am deeply sorry to hear of the loss of Jimmie. He had a positive impact on all he worked with in the TDOC and will be missed by those that knew him.

    I was both shocked and saddend when I saw my friend Jimmie’s picture in the obits. I can’t believe he is gone. It seems that it wasn’t that long ago that I spoke with him. My thoughts are with you and your family as you heal. He was one of the most thoughtful fellas I have ever met. I could always count on my Santa dollar and a yummy carrot cake around Christmas time. I will miss him, but glad that I got to know him. Your friends from The Sparks Clinic
