Jimmy (1930-1991)

This is Anna’s oldest brother Jimmy. He has been dead seventeen years now.

We didn’t cross paths often. We didn’t know each other very well. When we did find ourselves sitting by each other we didn’t have much to say.

He would try to find something to say, he would talk about when he was growing up.

Once on a cold day he told me when he was a boy, probably about the time-slot of the above picture, that on cold Sunday mornings he had to walk up to Noonday Baptist Church early before anybody got there and get all the pot belly stoves started with fire for the Sunday school classes.

Judy and Deborah,
The survey of you two is that James was a good looking lad. He continued to get better and better looking until he started looking old.
