Loyce, I am so sorry to hear this. I know we haven't been around each other that much, but you are family. Dorothy June Gibson, April 7, 2013 Both Amy and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Jimmy's family, our mother has told us often what special and caring people Jimmy and Loyce were. His loss will leave a sadness in world of those who knew him. God bless and keep his family. Lisa K. Anderson, April 2, 2013 God Bless the Anderson family.... I met Jimmy just a couple of times. He was working at our business, BizJet International, in Tulsa, Oklahoma as a subcontractor and was applying a flame retardant material to aircraft interiors. Jimmy's son James also works at BizJet as an aircraft manager and it was always fun to think about what was going through James' mind when he and dad Jimmy were working on the same aircraft. Whenever I saw Jimmy at BizJet, I thought how great it would have been to work with my dad at my job. I'm really glad James experienced that with his dad. Everyone at BizJet loves James and has a heavy heart due to his family's loss. We know that James and Jimmy had a great father-son relationship. James has told us more than once he was 'spoiled rotten' by his folks yet I'm glad to tell momma Loyce that as she knows, James is a person with a solid reputation in our industry with many credits to his name. BizJet wishes James and the entire Jimmy Anderson family a speedy transition from short-term grief to long-term sweet memories. God speed. Steve Cashon, March 23, 2013
