Not sure what to say?

Darla I so wanted to attend the service but circumstances prevented making the trip from San Antonio. You and your family have been on my heart and in my prayers. We go back so many years and I hope sometime in the future to see you and Barbara, until then you are in my prayers that the Lord may give you comfort and strength.
I did want to share that Jimmy and I had a chance to talk at the last reunion and it was very clear how much he loved his family!

Such a wonderful, caring and funny man! I miss those staff meetings where you kept us all laughing! It was so very nice working with and getting to know you. Prayers of comfort and peace for your family.

Our hearts and prayers are with you Darla, may God give you comfort.

On the field of life Jimmy Wheeler could always be counted on. Gone but not forgotten. Richard Castro.

Deepest sympathy for Darla and the family from my brother, Richard Castro and me. I am very sad to hear about this. I have many very fond memories of Jimmy from La Porte Jr High and High School. His obituary just confirmed my thoughts that he was a class guy and will be missed by many.

May Our Lord Have Mercy as He provides comfort and strength during this difficult time. His Memory is Eternal.

Darla and Kerry I am praying for your comfort and strength during this difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss. Rest in peace Jimmy.
