Jimmy Howell and I were classmates in the 1958 graduating class of Winston County High in Double Springs, AL. We went through jr and sr high together. He was always a good guy, a lot of fun, and a dear friend. Thanks to Facebook, we connected in recent years. I'm so glad to know he was a believer but sad that he has left us so soon. Rest in peace, beloved brother. Prayers for the family.

Jim was an exemplary Christian and friend. I have been Jim and Linda’s next door neighbor for four years; he has always been kind, helpful and generous, particularly after my husband Tom passed away last year. My sincere and loving condolences go to Linda, my dear friend, and the entire family. He will be greatly missed.
