    Jimmy Panther was a good guy and everybody at Tabernacle Baptist Church loved him he will be terribly missed. I am very happy that i got to meet him.

    Kenneth and Dolores (Clark) Edmonds were my parents so this is a distant relative. My condolences to extended family members especially Christine and Jake whom I’ve seen once in a while over the years. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve. So sorry for your loss.

  3. Goodbye, Uncle Jimmie

    I will miss your smile and humor. That twinkle in your eye, and your talents for music and making things, made every visit a joy for me. Save a spot for me in the band, Uncle Jimmie. I’ll try to keep up with you.
