I am filled with sadness at the passing of my sister, Jessie's beloved husband. I will remember my brother-in-law as a loving husband, father, grandfather and a devoted friend to many. Jimmie's body was ravaged by that terrible disease CANCER, but he suffered in silence and never complained. He never gave up and kept fighting until the very end. I will not be selfish, but filled with relief that he has crossed over the River Jordan and free of pain and with the Heavenly Father. I will never forget the kindness you showered on me especially the times you and Jessie Mae had to come to my rescue at 2AM because of a spider in my closet and when I thought a snake was behind my dresser, but it was one of those large awful fast moving bug. Even though you had to be up at 5AM you never complained. I was witness to you asking your Savior to forgive you of your sins and to you dedicating your life to Christ. I will cherish that moment and the memory of James "Jimmie" Johnson. God Bless Jessie and the Johnson family
