You help me through some of the hardest times of my life. You’re a great man with a great heart and I will always remember you are such. Rest easy and I’ll see you again

Some of the best memories in my youth were because of the warm and welcoming household offered to us, wayward teenagers, by Jimmy and Cori. I will continue missing Ben and Jimmy terribly and my thoughts and prayers are with Cori, Daniel, Phillip and Matt. You may not realize how special you all are to me.
