Dear Beth, I was sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. I remember our backyards "touching" when Marilyn and I were children, then seeing you and Jimmy at Upper Long Cane when I would visit my mother, Janie Price. He was always so friendly and interested in catching up. Thinking of you and praying God's comfort for you and your family during this time.
