We spent many happy times with Jimmy and Pat. Always enjoyed him leading the music and Pat on the piano or organ. We all used to get together with Pat’s parents and play cards and go camping together. Many happy times. Jimmy will be missed but has left a legacy as he represented Jesus in all that he did. Jimmy we will see you again one day....

Jimmy joined us in 5th grade at the elementary school. He also joined a bunch of us at Lemon Heights Baptist. As teens my grandfather , music die ChArlie Sapp, has Jimmy, Perry Ball, Camille Long and myself singing in a quartet. It was so much fun. I sang at Pat and Jimmys wedding in 1961. Jim wS always fun, telling clean stories, and kind. They included my girls and I in many adventures. We are all 3 grateful for their friendship.
