    Bimbo was my first best friend. We lived across the street from each other when we were young kids growing up in Lamar . I remember when I was about 5 years old I was playing in a dogwood tree in my front yard and Miss Katherine pulled up in her car she said I’m going to pickup Bimbo from school do you want to ride with me , I was halfway in the car by then and we were off to school. I will never forget him and I know he is with Jesus now . Praying for Susan and her family .

    My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr James Hudson. To me, he was a gentle giant. He was one of the kindest men I’ve ever had the privilege to know. Mr Hudson, I’ll miss you always. Thank you for all the kindness that you’ve shown me over the years. Take your rest now. God needed another soldier for His Army, and He took one of the best! Until we meet again…
