RIP my friend! I have great memories of growing up next door to Jimmy's parents as well as working with him in my nursing career. Jimmy was a great person-warm and caring and ready to crack a joke. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Jimmy will be sadly missed by many. Pamela Keys

Jimmy's family, My husband and I got to know Jimmy, and I had the privilege of working with Jimmy for many years at the Bibb County Medical Examiner's Office. He was a wonderful friend and co-worker. Sometimes we really don't realize how special people in our lives are, until we don't see them any longer. He will always be a very special person in our lives and part of our extended family. Sending you our sincere Prayers, Terry & Mindy Hill
