Sibley, Sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. I have not seen Jimmy since 1958 when I went in the Navy. HE was always a friend.

I have recently heard about Jimmy’s passing. Praying for Sibley, Pam, Chris and the rest of the family. Jimmy is safe with Jesus. He can’t come to you but you can go to him. So thankful that God will continue to walk with you until you make it home also.
