Rick and Cindy, so sorry to get the news about Uncle Jim. I am unable to attend his service. He will surely be missed. I always got to visit with him when I was in Ohio. My prayers and thoughts will be with you.

I just wanted to say that I'm very sorry for your loss. Jimmy was one of my favorite customers. He was always there with a smile, even on days he wasn't feeling too well. We would laugh and joke and talk about how him and my grandfather shared the same birthday. He was just an awesome person and I'll miss him greatly...

- Heather from CVS, Thursday November 2nd, 2017

Jimmy had such a big heart and would always make me smile. He will be sorely missed at the pharmacy! My prayers are with the family during this time.
