  1. Ginny, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very sad time. We know your memories will bring you comfort and peace in the hard times to come.

    I grew up in Halifax and played a lot of ball with Jimmy. He was an excellent athlete as was all the Arendall family.
    As the years went by, I would see Jimmy from time to time on the golf course. He always greeted me with a smile and warm hand-shake. We got to talk briefly, and I knew he was very proud of his family. You could tell he loved all of you.
    May the many fond memories you shared through the years help comfort all of you in the days and months ahead.
    Jimmy was a good man and my thoughts and prayers are with each of you at this time.
    With deepest sympathy,
    Buddy Peace
