The Broken Chain
We little knew the day that
God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but in God we put our trust,
In times as difficult as this,
faith is such a must.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

    We met briefly a few times but you touched my soul. Your son is wonderful I am proud to call him son-in-law.

    You rest now and prepare a place where we will all meet again one day.

    Thank you for being a light in my life.

    Anita and Family

    I had the pleasure of working with Jimmy when I was young man at Stansell Electric. Jimmy was and still is the best electrician that I have had the joy of working with or traning under. I am very sorry for the families loss and you all have my deepest condolences. Jimmy was a good man that treated me with respect & honesty, thank you Jimmy & you will be missed.

    I love and will miss you. I’m glad to have been your son. You taught me many of things over my lifetime. I am honored to be following in yours, granddads and uncle mike’s footsteps with the electrical thing. Also if I’m ever about to screw up on the job I’d appreciate it if you would give me a nudge or something. Oh yeah give grandma a hug and kiss for me and tell tell David I said hey.Until I see you again I love you and will miss you.
    Your Son

    No matter how much preparing I did for this time it still hit me hard that you are gone. I tried to be strong for Randy, for your grand kids and I am sorry that I failed.

    I will miss our plots and plans but I am thankful that you are no longer suffering.

    Thank you for being there for me, for us, and loving all of the kids and myself. You did a wonderful job in raising Randy to be the man he is today. Thank you dad.

    I love and will miss you until we all can be together again.
