I awoke yesterday morning and I heard my wife crying softly, I asked her why she was crying and she told me Little Jimmy Dickens had passed away. I understood as she new Mr. Dickens as a childhood memory. Her grandparents used to know a lot of country stars and often hosted parties at their ranch. My wife as a little girl was especially fond of Little Jimmy Dickens because when she met him he was small like her. It is funny the things we remember, she tells me of times when Sally Star, would stop by and was affectionately known as aunt Sally. I have seen pictures of her sitting on the knee of Buck Owens and being hoisted in the air by Roy Clark. I feel sad Jimmy is gone but I know for a fact he will not be forgotten.
