I’m so sorry to learn of the passing of Mr, Davis. You have my sincere condolences. May the God of heaven comfort you and give you the peace you need in the the days ahead.

Jimmy you were the best brother in law and I will miss you. I will always remember you welcomed me into the family 29 years ago and said "You better be good to my little sister or I will hunt you down and it won't be pretty". I will take care of her until we meet again. Dave

I feel empty alone and regret not returning home to visit more often. I am confident my big brother would have done anything for me if I had asked. Love and miss you, Vicki
