I came to to Jimmy's visitation, spoke with Anna. Sorry I did not see you there. Our parents, Reid & Helen Lambert & family, Lawrence, Marilyn & Joanne were family friends with Ray & Desta & Jimmy since I can remember. My father & Ray were friends from the 1930's or maybe before. My mother also knew many of the Huffer family members from Forest & Clinton County area in connection with Desta. Our family treasure many fond memories of being with them. Jimmy was a active and fun child growing up and we sure enjoyed being with him. It was a treat to go to their home in many ways. Desta would always have a freshly baked pie witch was delicious. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you and your family during this sad and difficult time and in the days to come.
With Love, Marilyn Lambert Wooldridge & Lawrence & Joanne.
