I just want you all to know that I thought the world of Jimmy. I have owned two different businesses in Gainesboro and he would come by and sell me different things and I always enjoyed talking to him and sharing our political views with one another. He was such a kind soul and will be missed. Prayers of comfort and peace for you all from all of us at Johnson's Auto Parts...
