We met you late in life Jamie, but are blessed by the time we spent with you. Our studies and laughs together will not be soon forgotten, and one day the 6 of us will laugh together again. Your faith was an inspiration that God used to strengthen each of us in its own unique way. We love you brother Jamie. - The Merrills

Jim Potter from Wilson,NC on May. 7, 2023

Sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. We have known one another since the early days at Mobil Chem., early mornings at Sam's or at Kershaw on sunny days. My last meeting with Jimmy was while giving him a ride home early one evening. We laughed about those early days and some of the crazy things we did. Oddly enough, we both felt growing up was "totally overrated". I cannot remember ever meeting person like Jimmy in all my years. Soft spoken, slow walkin' and one heck of a lot of fun. RIP old friend. My condolences to his family.
