My thoughts are with you all, Jim was a good man and I will never forget and forever be grateful for the help and heart he gave us when my mother passed away. He will be missed and I am sorry not to have been able to attend and pay my respects in this sad time. Ty Richey

Thad and I are so very sorry to hear about Jimmy. We both thought the world of him. He will be missed. It was always so nice to look up and see him in the audience at the auction. So many school memories too. May the Lord bless all of you in Jimmy's family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
