Toni and I have some very special memories of Jimmie. Shortly after we moved into our house at the top of Wagonwheel Rd Jimmie brought us some home made strawberry jam. It was delicious! From that first meeting Jimmie offered his help with anything we might need. He saw my Huber tractor that we got with the house and he immediately was intrigued by it. I has a belley blade which we have both put to a lot of use. Jimmie offered to keep the tractor running in return with using the tractor. He did an excellent job keeping the old red machine running. Jimmie also has let me use his backhoe which was invaluable during the rebuilding of our home after the Hanford fire of 2000. The fire also laid claim to the transmission from the tractor. We have both been trying to locate a replacement for the tractor without any luck. I would love to get the tractor running again so that Jimmie will be able to see that his hard work did not go to waste. We will miss him and we give you Roxie and your family our love and prayers.
John and Toni Cooke
