    Jimmy Cobb was one of the sweetest persons I have ever known. He will be missed so very much by all of us. His smile and laughter lingers in everyone’s minds that ever came into contact with him. He gave of himself and asked nothing in return. May God bless and comfort his precious wife, daughters, and all the family members, friends and most certainly his precious little sidekick fursby puppydog, Bullet.
