We all loved Jimmy at Dr. Browning's office. All 3 of you worked so hard to keep him happy all the time. I'm so glad I met you all and it was a joy to help Jimmy. I loved hearing his boat stories and Disney stories. He was so loved by the 3 of you.
I will keep you all in my thoughts & prayers. Nancy J.

While we are no longer part of the Lake Family, are family has been blessed with so many wonderful and happy memories of Jimmy. There has never been a time when we talk about the lake that Jimmy has not been part of our conversation. Smiles and laughter was always abundant with Jimmy when you were around him. The Compton Family added value to our life and many others. May Jimmy Rest in Peace.
