I was sorry to learn of Jimmy's passing. He and Carolyn were long time friends of my brother and his wife, Sonny and Carole Moore. i can't help but think that Sonny was waiting to welcome Jimmy and that they are again enjoying time together doing the things they loved.

Our prayers are with you and your family. Jimmy was a very sweet man. I met him at my husband"s Sons of Confederate Veterans meeting. He will be missed. He had a special place in my husband's heart. Rest in peace Jimmy Wheeler

Jimmy was without a doubt one of the most caring indivuals that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was a dedicated volunteer for the James Island Fire Department and was always there when he was needed. He was a good friend to all and wouldn't hesitate to help anyone that was in need.
Jimmy will be missed by many.
Carolyn and family members I'm so sorry for your loss.

It is with great sadness we say goodby to a good man and yet rejoice that he is now made whole in the presence of his creator.
