RIP Daddy. We had plans to create more memories, but God was ready for you now. Thanks for loving me. You’ll be missed! I’ll cherish the times we had together forever, and so will the kids. We’ll finish catching up on the other side. Love Always, Daddy’s only girl
Bonnie, I was sorry to hear of Jimmy’s passing. I have known you and Jimmy since elementary school. Each time I have seen you, it’s been like it was just yesterday. When I would see Jimmy, he’d always have news to share or a memory from school he’d remind about. We would always end up laughing. I will always remember him and his positive attitude about life, and how he’d encourage me to keep on going. I would like to pray that you and his family to receive God’s comfort and the love He will bless you with. I pray that God will hold your hands and walk with you. May you depend on him fully He will carry you through it all. Mary D.Jones and family
My sincere and deepest condolences to Bonnie, Jimmy Hinton ll, other family members, friends and all touched by Jimmy’s passing. Oily was a dear friend and cousin of mine, who made an early impression on me as growing up as a young teenager . He was always warm and kind to me, giving ♥ love and guidance as an older brother would. Cool, good looking , 😎 intelligent and street wise,..he was someone easy to look up to and someone who never disappointed . I always made it a point to stay in touch as he was one of the last of his kind . An O G who was there when needed and always ready to lend a helping hand. I will miss that smile and hearing him greet me with a loud “kin folk! ” whenever we met. One of a kind and irreplaceable , you are already dearly missed. RIP Jimmy..I love you!
