I will never forget walking in the mall and me randomly saying I want to be pimp-shi*. How you would laugh everytime I would say that. People must have thought we were crazy. Jim you were my Big brother. I never stopped loving you ever. There are too many memories to share, Crawfish, Meet the Robinsons, all the miles we would drive with the music up loud and you and I dancing. I love ya big Bro. Forever and always. KaylieMonkey!

Dearest Grandma & Grandpa who were not at the service today: I don't know your very precious Jimbo, but my heart breaks for everyone's losses. I say this with great love and respect, this outlet is not the place to share family disputes. This is a time of family love, grief, and friendship to help in the healing process. I pray Jesus tugs at your hearts to forgive one another & move forward. The greatest commandment is LOVE. We must forgive as commanded. I know your grief is great, but writing your personal feelings regarding personal family matters is not the loving thing to do at this time. I pray God tenders your heart to let whatever is hurting you go....This horrific accident is enough pain to endure without adding more salt to the wounds. I hope many who read your words will pray for healing and PEACE for all involved. God loves all of you. Peace to all and know although many in this commnuity may not have known these children, we hurt and pray for everyone. God bless everyone in these families struggling with their sorrow & pain--including you the Grandparents. If a relationship in not possible with one another, forgiveness is possible. All those that read their words, please pray additionally for extended family healing. Thank you. To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. We ache with you. In fact, our gift of prayers are being sent your way. God knows your pain, His only Son suffered and died for all of us.

I've been trying to decide if I want to write this or not, knowing you will never see it and it's a little too late to tell you how much I would miss you if you would one day be gone. I know that you know though. I still can't believe your gone. I keep thinking this can't be real. We haven't talked in a while, and now we never will again. I can't help but be angry... It shouldn't have been you. You never hurt anyone, you always knew what to say, you lived life, and you made eveyones life you touched that much better. I'm going to miss you. You were loved; you are loved. I hope you felt this loved when you were alive. You will never be forgotten.

Although I only knew Jimbo for four years, our time together was full of happy memories. I will never forget a single thing we did, nor will I regret it. He was there whenever I needed him, whether I realized it or not. He was a loving friend to everyone he met. Jimbo's smile filled his entire face, and it was always there. He knew how to have a good time, no matter what the situation. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

While Jimbo and I didn't know each other for very long, he was one of my best friends. He was always the best person to talk to when you needed someone to listen, and he gave the best bear hugs. The last time I saw him, we sat at Memorial Park for an entire afternoon, talking and wrestling and laughing. He was always smiling and making people laugh. I will never forget such an amazing person.

Jimbo was a great friend to me. Always smiling and picking on me. When we gratduated I was worried I would lose touch with him, however he found me on Facebook and hunted me down at the mall from time to time. His laughter would bring such joy to anyone around him. He was an amazing man. I am going to miss him more than words can say.
Sheri left a message on April 6, 2009:
To our family he will always be Jimmy no matter how much he hated that as he got older. We will always carry a part of his smile and his caring nature with us. It didn't matter who you were he touched your heart. His parents can be so proud of what a great man he became and we will all be better people for having him in our lives. No one was more respectful and a bigger sheepish grin than Jimmy. We love you buddy and we will miss you but we will see you again! Ms Sheri and Mr Tony, Torie and Brandon

I knew Jimbo through school. He was always in a good mood and honestly there whenever anyone needed him. I guess the memory that sticks the most is the knit hat he wore almost all the time. He always said it was his "thing!" He's going to be missed by many and forever in our memories.

Jimmy was always there for anyone and everyone. You could talk to him for hours, and even if he didn't understand he would try. His smile, laugh, and hugs will live on forever in the hearts and minds of all that he touched during his life. He will be greatly missed.
Kate Gargo left a message on April 6, 2009:
I've known Jimbo for many years and he was always compassionate, energetic and a great friend. He never had unkind words for anyone and cared for his friends strongly. Every time I was with Jimbo, whether it was riding the bus to school, math class or just running into each other he could always make me laugh and feel better. I'm glad I got to know such a great guy, and my deepest sympathies go out to his family.

I still have pictures of Jimmy when he and Mikey were little. I spent a whole summer with those boys when I was a teen, and even then all they did was smile. Mischeviou little buggers. Jimmy was so loving even then. I only wish we had been closer together growing up. I thank all of his friends for loving him as much as you have. To Uncle Butch and Aunt Patty and Little Mikey. If I could be there I would. I hope you know that. All our love and prayers are with you now and always. We love you all. Jen and Family....
