    Uncle Jim was my hero my friend one of the best examples of being a father and a man. He taught me so many things and always helped me with advice on my big decisions in life. Been thinking about all of the miles I’ve been and the jobs I’ve worked beside him. So many happy memories. If I could only be half the man he was to all of us.

    I was shocked to read this tonight and my heart is breaking for Pam and the family. Jimmy Don was a first cousin and we enjoyed each time we got together which was never often enough. I pray the peace, comfort and strength of the Lord will flood the heart of those left behind. Love you Jimmy Don and we’ll see you soon!
