  7. My papaw was a great man, i have such great memories of him and my memaw. Going down to Houston and spending my entire summer break with them and having so much fun was one of the many things i loved doing, one time we all took the boat out and i got really scared and had to go back home so papaw took me out on it just me and him and he taught me how to drive and it was the coolest thing ever! I helped him fix his truck and mowed the yard with him, watch columbo with him all the time, would sit and listen to him tell me stories about him working on planes and stuff.
    He lived an amazing life and i wouldnt of asked for a better papaw then him, i love and miss you papaw.

  8. I am so heartbroken. Mickey and I loved Jimmy so much. Our young years in the Air Force were so much more fun thanks to Jimmy. When Mickey had to work on base all night long, I was scared to be alone. Jimmy would come over and stay with me. One week we kept working on this giant 1500 piece puzzle of a SNOW scene. We finally finished it and actually had two pieces left over. Jimmy said “If you buy another one like this I am gonna kill you.” It was just a really funny memory I never forgot. One night we went fishing on a little creek. Jimmy and Mickey gave me the job of holding the flashlight and watching for snakes. I can never make scrambled eggs without thinking of him…. he would come over to our little Abilene apartment and I would be cooking breakfast……. he would say I want my eggs scrambled HARD, none of that soft stuff. OK Jimmy, hard scrambled eggs. He was so gentle and kind and fun. The world will miss him so much.
