Billie, Mark, and Cherie,
My sincere condolences for your loss.
Jim Robinson was a true American hero. Deservedly so, a member of The Greatest Generation that saved the world. He served our country well. A patriot who put country before personal gain. Jim was the smartest man I ever knew. Jim and Billie treated me like family the whole time I knew them, inviting me for Thanksgiving dinner every year after my own parents passed away. Jim helped so many people during his life. He was generous and compassionate. His life was well lived; hard work, ambition, and a "can do" attitude were hallmarks of his life. Pine Bluff, and indeed the world, has lost a fine man. I will miss him, and his always interesting conversation. May God's Blessings and strength be with you all at this difficult time.
Carl Tucker
