“We are sure going to miss Jim coming to visit in Tennessee. He was always happy and kind. He was a very smart man. He loved talking to my husband. He called him “Mountain William” (intelligent hillbilly). He loved to ride around on the four wheeler , weed eat and sit on the front porch while he was here. Prayers for all the family!”
