Debbie and family. We always felt that you were part of our family living across the street from us, and Brendan & Ryan were always best of friends. We hated when you moved but still enjoyed following Jimmy whenever we knew that Southern Crescent was playing. I cannot express my sadness in hearing of Jimmy's passing.

Lifting up prayers for God's peace on all of you, Ball Family. Jim was our neighbor and friend for the last 21 years. Always so upbeat and always willing to take time to discuss all matters of life with you. Our son, Luke, is a drummer as well and Jim was kind enough to help put his first drum set together 15 years ago. Jim will be sorely missed by all who knew him. God bless Debbie, Kristen, Jamie, Ryan and families.

I knew Jim when he was a salesman for Muzak around 1980. He was a great man and really did love music. He had a scrapbook he made where he saved headlines from the newspaper for rock stars that died like Elvis or Jimi Hendrix. I lost track of Jim years ago as life often goes in many directions. My condolences to his family and God bless you all. Jim was my friend and I will always miss him.
