We will miss Uncle Jimmy, He was always fun to visit with. When we came to Arkansas he drove us around in the car in 2006. We're happy you're where God called you, that now you can have a wonderful family reunion. We love you and miss you. Love Mike and Natalie Rogers

We are thankful to know that Uncle Jimmy is no longer suffering and that the trust is in his case, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. May God comfort your family during this difficult time of separation and bring you peace that He is with God. We love you all and will be thinking of you in the coming days. Rest in the arms of Jesus Uncle Jimmy.

Bro. James was one of the sweetest, kindest people I've been blessed to know. All of his family were blessed to be led in life by his faith and honor and love for God. I have missed seeing him for several years, but always smiled when I thought of him...I always knew he was there. God blessed him in this life and he now rejoices in the presence of Father God. God bless Bro. James' family as they now wait on their reunion with many loved ones in heaven.
