To all of Jimmy's Family... May God give you peace, comfort and strength renewed daily. May He give you sweet memories to hold in your heart to keep Jimmy close to you all the time and to help you smile through the tears. May the tears go away in time and the love you shared live on. Jimmy was a blessing and a friend to many. We grieve in the same measure that we love...it is a journey and not a destination. May you look to the Lord to help you on the path you are now on. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Jimmy was my dad's best friend and one of the funniest, most enjoyable people to be around, and he helped grow my love for golf and those memories I will cherish forever. I cant put into words how much this breaks my heart, but he was such a wonderful man.
