Message: Dear Aunt Geri, Rebecca& Melissa, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Some of my fondest memories as a child were of spending time in Warren, whether it was sitting on mammaw's front porch or playing badminton, lawn darts, croquette and cooking out in ya'lls backyard, Uncle Jim could always put a smile on your face with his quick wit. He was the kindest man I've ever known. They broke the mold after making him. I'm sure he's entertaining the angels today. God bless you all and I hope to see you soon.
