    To My Family (Whittington) and The Fosque Family, May God bless you and wrap his arm of comfort around you all as you mourn the great loss of Lil Jimmy. I will always remember his smile, that crazy laugh and hearing him tell me “Cuz you crazy” and laugh as hard as he could. We shared many times together talking and I enjoyed watching him fish and he enjoyed doing it. I will miss him dearly, but he will never be forgotten by me. I love you “Cuzn Jimmy,” may you RIP.

    I know that you will be that brightest star shining on us each night and the bright sunshine will be a reminder of your bright smile.

    My heart, thoughts and Prayers are with you all from a distance. Love Yall!

  • Saying goodbye to a son you raised from birth was hard to do. No matter what his faults were, he was still my son. You won’t have to hurt any more and carry your head down. God accepted you no matter your faults or problems. Just always remember your mother will always love you.
