  1. Dear Sister Betty, I know your heart is broken….you are so precious and I am so sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful man and I thought you both were so sweet together. You are in my prayers and I love you dearly.Kathy

  2. I measure men by their heart and kindness rather than positions achieved and wealth accumulated. By my standards, Jimmy LeJeune was a giant of a man. He never seemed to be wealthy, but he provided for his family and was rich in love and kindness. Is there anything greater?

  3. I worked with Jimmy for many years. He was always friendly,pleasant and a joy to talk to. The world needs more men like him. I enjoyed his humor and his stories.

  4. It is with great sadness that I offer my deepest of condolences to Sister Betty, Troy, Tammy and all of the family. Bro. Jimmy was one of the kindest men that I've ever known. It's been a number of years since I've had the pleasure of seeing him, but he's always been a friend to me and an example of what a Christian Man should be. Please know that each one of you are in the forefront of my thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. I pray that God covers you all with His peace that passes all understanding and the strength that you need as you move forward in the days, weeks months ahead. I'll always remember this great man with joy in my heart. My life has been greatly enriched because within it, I had the privilege of knowing Bro. Jimmy LeJeune as my friend. God bless you all and God bless the memory and legacy of Jimmy LeJeune.

  5. Jimmy and I worked together and have been wonderful friends over the years. Even though I changed my profession, I have seen him even through these many years as a very great friend. Troy and Tammy, your dad loved God, and he loved the two of you. I wish you all the best.

  6. My dad RC Mixon and Mr. Jimmy used to go shrimping and hunting together a great deal together. Mr. Jimmy loved my Dad like a Father.
