Dearest Peggy & family, Mom & I were so saddened to hear of Jimmys passing! He was such a wonderful man-a good friend & neighbor to our family! We have fond memories of his visits through the years -always generous in remembering us with delicious fruit or candies, & conversations of his travels & family!
Peggy, we will never forget one of your last visits at Christmas time several years ago when the carolers came & your dad helped my dad to the door! You & Jimmy had brought us each a cozy blanket that mom & I still enjoy to this day! We have always remembered your kindness!
Ann, we have missed your precious parents’ visits very much! Please give your sweet mom a hug for us & know that you are all in our prayers!
Love, Tracy & Joy & family

I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Mr. Bellamy through Hazel Hatchell (State Farm). He would always come in the office to pay and say "Scroll me." He was always nice and had a smile on his face. Even though I haven't seen him in years, I have fond memories of him.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

Peggy I am so sorry for your loss. I remember when you and Jimmy would come to the Hallmark shop at the old mall and he would patiently wait for you to do your shopping. Even when we moved to the new mall, he would always come with you . He was a good man and will be missed by all who knew him. May those good memories give you comfort in the days ahead.
