  • Jim you are loved, you are in a better place and will be missed by all. Just because you are gone doesn’t mean you are forgotten. Will be seeing you at those gates and you can give us a guided tour. Love to you—-Mary and Bud

  • Marsha, I’m so sorry for the loss of Jim. I have many fond memories of all of y’all and the rest of our cousins when we were growing up. Wish I could make it to the memorial service, but will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Much love to you, Shelby

  • Dear Family, I am very sorry that we lost Jim. I remember how happy Aunt Marci and Uncle Jimmy were when he was born. Even though we didn’t get to see each other often, I cherish the childhood memories of him and all the Pittman’s when we were together in Summerfield, Bradenton, Lake Park, Jacksonville, or Valdosta, or wherever we met. I believe that Christ is our savior and Jim is in heaven receiving his reward. God bless our family!

  • So sorry to hear of Jims passing. He was such a fun spirited guy whom always seemed to have a smile. I remember him strumming his guitar and singing or making up songs. I always loved hearing him sing the song sunshine cowboy. The strong bond he and his sister Marsha shared was moving, I would crack up watching them tease each other endlessly. Much love to the family.

  • My deepest heartfelt condolences to his famlly. Jim will be missed by all. He left many good memories with us. Jim got me playing (and appreciating) Johnny Cash.& Waylon Jennings songs on the guitar. He slways made me laugh , even when trying to chase him down to try to whup 0n him when he made me mad. He was always happy to see me , even he was feeling blah. My memories of growing up with jim and marsha in florida will always bting me joy.
