When I first started this ministry in 1992 (we actually did our first Bible Study in the fall of 1991) one of the first guys to help contribute to my coming out on the Tour, was Jimmy Walker (aka, "James Earl"). He was working for a player named Ted Schultz. We immediately formed a kindred spirit. Jimmy would always take great notes at our studies. He was an encouragement to me.
Last Friday, after a battle with cancer, Jimmy's mom went home to be with Lord. He chose to miss this year's US Open so that he could watch it with his mom. That's what she really wanted to do! Please pray for he and his sister. The funeral is this Tuesday in Louisville, Ky.
