Never met Jimmy, but he's obviously a Class Act.

My hat is off to you.

Pretty amazing story.......

I saw a blurb on S.O. now and then. I then saw when Jimmy sent the package of goodies to Julia. Then I recently saw pictures of Jimmy with Julia on Facebook I said to myself that this is a great story. I also wanted to time it with the new year and start off the year with a positive story than the usual negative ones.

A big THANK YOU to Julia's mom for giving me all of the details!

And da'man. Can't say much more than that!

This is an awesome story! I talked with Jim Jernigan last night at our boat club meeting and we were in awl that this nice gesture got out to so many people. Its truly a blessing.

Papa Jernigan, Hang in there buddy! Its gonna be a tough road but there are a lot of prayers out here for ya.

As far as Jimmy Winters, Jim Jackson and I have raced with Talk'n Trash at numorous race sites. We are in two different classes but usually cant miss them. Always a class act, always talking with people and taking care of business, letting people snap a photo or two. A true class act they are, the whole team. When you surround yourself with good people, good things happen!

Hey everyone thanks so much for all the nice words. It seems like yesterday when I ran to the car to get Julia that pink tank top.The Howlin and Jernigan familys are really wonderful poeple and I'm proud to call them friends. Jim Jernigan aka Poppie is very sick so please pray for him.
