  3. Jimmie, I never thought in our 23 years of friendship that I would be saying goodbye to you at such a young age. You were my brother through friendship, but a brother none the less & we are going to miss you terribly. We wish the big guy upstairs would have given you more time down here, not only with us but your family & friends as well. We are never going to forget you, nor will we say goodbye, but we will say “I’ll be seeing you sometime in the future”! We know you will be watching over us & guiding us in the right direction, otherwise the big guy himself would not have called you home to help him. RIP our dear sweet friend, you will be missed dearly & loved to no end. We miss you already!! Love, Adreanna, Eric, & Frank
