Diane & Jimmy..So sorry for the loss of a great lady. I'll cherish all the moments that come to mind. The sledding down her hill as a kid and all the Hillbilly jam session parties. She will always hold a special place in the hearts of my family. Could always count on her and Uncle Jim when times were tough. I will certainly miss my yearly birthday phone call and her singing it. She and Uncle Jim are reunited and that thought alone brings me comfort. I will lift all of you up in prayer as well for peace and comfort.
