Uncle Jimmie was the epitomy of a Cowboy, he truly loved the critters he owned and cared for. You could tell he loved his life by the smile and good nature he carried with him sunup til sundown. He loved playing his guitar and entertaining friends and family. He was a master dominoe player who could tell you which dominoes you had left after 3-4 plays. Whether Horseback or plowing he felt most at peace outdoors. A love he passed on to all his children and at least this nephew.
