Frances, Stacy, Sandy, and family,
I just heard about Jimmy's passing, and am very saddened. He and Dad were such great friends! Now they are together. May God bless his soul, and may He keep His arms around all of you to give you comfort and peace during this difficult time. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Aunt Fofi, Sandy and Stacy,
Uncle Jim was one of my favorite uncles. I remember him as I was growing up and he was always there with his wonderful laugh helping out in any way he could. He will be in my memories forever. May your cherished memories of this wonderful man ease the sadness in your heart.
Love, Athena

Frances,
I was shocked and so sorry to hear of Jimmy's tragic death. He was one of the nicest and fun-loving people I ever met. I will never forget the old days when you all had the restaurant in Colonial Heights and how Jimmy and Jack "short legs" Murphy would pick at and "insult" one another. They should have been a comedy team.
My thoughts and prayers are with you in this most difficult time. God bless you and all of your family.

Francis, Stacy and Sandy, Mr. Basis was the one of the nicest people I ever have known. I remember him driving the church bus to sunday school and Francis being the sunday school teacher. He was a family man and will be missed greatly. I hope that you all can find peace during this hard time. Your family is in my prayers.

Jimmy was a nice guy. I first knew him when he ran Arnette's. I worked next door at the post office and went over frequently for coffee and doughnuts. Frances and girls, I am shocked and sorry about this tragedy. He always remembered and called me by name whenever we met. May his soul rest in peace.
