J. B. "Pap" Latimer was the sweetest, kindest person you could ever meet. He and Maxine were the best neighbors, and always a pleasure to be with here in Pickwick, TN. I remember the fish frys that he and Maxine would do every year. Everyone enjoyed the food and the camaraderie. Thanks for the memories, Pap!!!

Mr.. J. B. was one of my precious friends! He and Maxine were members of our church and were very active. He was coming to eat at The Table in Savannah, TN, the last time I saw and talked to him. My family and I send our sympathy.

I knew Mr. JB thru church in Paris & Savannah. I was so sad to hear of his passing. He was such a pleasant man to visit with. He & my mom were Memphis Tiger fans & would talk "ball".
I am thinking of you & hope you will treasure all the precious lifetime memories of him.
