I had the pleasure of working with Jimmy for a few years at Gary Russ and would talk to him at Stokes Trainor when I came by there on my current job. Jimmy was such a kind person and hard worker and I always enjoyed talking with him. I will keep his family and friends in my prayers during this difficult time.

Mary Ann and Family we were saddened to hear just a few minutes ago about the death of Jimmy! We are remembering you in our prayers and will continue to as life goes on adjusting to Jimmy’s absence! From school days as long as we had an acquaintance with him we never knew a more Godly man or friend to his family and fellowman! May God be with you and bless you all! Our loss is certainly Heaven’s gain! He loved his family and was quick to mention you always!

Mary Ann and Family: We send our deepest sympathy to all of you. We were very heartbroken to learn about Jimmy's passing. He was such a sweet easy going person. We didn't get to see him very often but we enjoyed the brief visits when we were able to "meet up," We will be thinking of you all often.

Jimmy's faith, honesty, intelligence, and clever wit remain unmatched among those few who in a lifetime I have had the honor to call "my friend." The spirit and essence of Jimmy Dennis will live in the memory of so many as truly a one-of-a-kind man. Dear Mary Ann: You and all yours are on my mind and in my prayers. Thank you deeply for all the great goodness you and Jimmy shared with me. I love y'all.

Mrs. MaryAnn and family, my deepest sympathy for your loss. I do not have to tell each of you what a great man he was because you already know. He will be missed by many. When I think of Smyrna church I think of Mr. Jimmy. I think of how wonderful he was always with my grandparents and how he and Mrs. MaryAnn would take them food and visit. He did this for many!
