To the Carper family: Jimmy, was a wonderful man who loved his family with all his heart and loved his grandchildren even more. Jimmy, Bob loved to talk with you. He had a lot of respect for you and enjoyed your company. You will be missed by many. No one will ever fill the huge void that is now in their hearts, but all the wonderful memories that they have no one can ever take them away. They will have them forever to remember, always, and recall them whenever they need a lift. Your smile and your wonderful scense of humor will be missed by all. You are whole and well now and with your Heavenly Father. Rest in Peace my friend and one day we will all have a wonderful reunion together. That will certainly be a glorious day. Love in Christ, Shirley and Bob Scriber Shirley H. Scriber, January 3, 2011 I am so sorry to hear of your loss, it came as a shock. Our prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

We did not know then that we would have this long journey together. It is hard to say good-bye to you but I know you are in a much better place. I promise we will take care of Nannie for you. She is always our rock. This world will never be the same without you. I love you. Vicki Carper, November 29, 2010 My Pop, I will never find another man like you. You were one of a kind. You were my pop. I don't think I am ready to face this world without you, but I know Nannie will keep me strong. You will forever be missed. I love you! Morganne Carper, November 26, 2010 So sorry to hear about your loss, I thought a lot of Jimmy and so did mom and dad. We are praying for you during this difficult time.
