Condolence & Memory Journal


Jim and Lee were outstanding neighbors for 30 years. Jim was always to willing lend a hand , supply a tool, help out whenever he could. Kept an eye on our home whenever we were out of town. Watched our dogs , cut our lawn, tended our garden . Could not have hand picked better neighbors. Sadly we moved out of town 3 years ago and have missed them since. God Bless Lee and the family, there is no replacing Jim.

Mr. Petty in my life was a deacon in church as I grew up, an example of a good husband and father, a consistent attending member at church. Mr. Petty along with Mrs. Petty made his home open to our church young people where they could meet and fellowship with each other and be encouraged in the Lord. Mr. Petty walked with God and was an encouragement and a joy to be around. Mr. Petty was a bigger than life figure in my life.
Mrs. Petty, Lisa, and Cindy I appreciated your husband and father very much.

Mr. Petty praise God now and I will look for you when I get to heaven.
