  1. Danny and I want to let all of you know that we are thinking and praying for all of you, during this difficult time. To be absent from the body is to be present with God. God is going to take care of Jamie now. He will always be with each of you! May God richly bless each of you through these coming days. Put your trust in God, and he will see you though these hard times. Again, continued prayers always. Your Friends for life, Danny and Lisa Chaney

  2. I will miss u. I will never listen to Watermelon Crawl without seeing you karaoke this song every weekend. When you were my neighbor, you always needed a ride to your truck on the weekend mornings. Sometimes you even fed me for the ride. Oh how I would love to see that smiling face walk up the driveway again. You met Lora and your love blossomed …I lost my neighbor but gained another beautiful friend in Lora. You both were smiling ear to ear each time I saw yall. Each egg I see reminds me of You and Lora bringing me 8 dozen at a time. You both have been and always will be in my heart and prayers. They say God only takes the best… Well, now he has quite an army of great people up there. I can’t wait to join that family in the sky when my time comes. What a day that will be! ? Until then, watch over us all… great angels and keep guard over your young children and send comfort to the broken hearted ?????????Love ya friend till we meet again.

  5. We do not know any of you personally, but we extend our deepest sympathy. This was so horrible what happened! Prayers that God will give each of you comfort, strength and peace in these days and in many, many days to come.

  6. We are so saddened by the final outcome of this tragedy. Jamie touched our lives as he did so many with genuine love and laughter. The last time we saw him was just before the accident. He was joking about his children growing up so fast. He also told me about counter balancing discipline and humor. All the while beaming with pride and happiness as he spoke. His eyes always said as much as he did with his smile. One of the lights in our little community has left us, but not before lighting a spark inside of each person he touched. Prayers continue for his family, his children, his Lora, and his other friends and co-workers. He will be missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.
