One of the nicest people I ever met and so was your Mom. Had the pleasure of a brief visit with both of them in Jasper Al, January, 2011. They hold a special place in my heart as I recall the kindness and respect they always gave my Parents.

I finished school with Jimmy at HHS in 1956. I also worked with Jimmy at Butler when I was entering the workforce upon completing my military duty. Jimmy was a very nice guy and friend to me.
