  6. Jimmie and family ,
    Jim was one the good ones! Working with him at Dealers and Elliott will always be remembered. He was a wealth of knowledge and always had a cup of coffee in his hand ! Even after moving on we still kept in touch at least once a year with our MLK phone call – when we could remember – ha ha !
    Praying for y’all ! Enjoy all the good times!
