I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Workman. I met Mr. Workman through Monica. I remember that day so vividly because Monica and I used to ride to work together since she was driving she would pick me up every morning. Mr. Workman would ask if I was ok whenever I was off. He was always concerned with/about all of Monica's friends. I'm so grateful to Monica for sharing him with me. Although I was not around a lot the times I were he was a very kind and gentle soul. He will be missed so much. Again family you have my deepest sympathy. To Monica thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of your dad's life. I will treasure all of those special moments forever. To all of the family and friends I will leave you with Psalm 30:5 Weeping may endure for the night, but joy cometh in the morning. Hold on to those special moments and he will remain in your hearts always. 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊 😊 😊 😊 😊 😊 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊 😊 😊 😊 😊😊

First of all prayers to the Workman family. Jimmy was someone that brought a lot of joy even in sickness, He made rehabilitation at South Point Hospital a pleasure to attend. Jimmy was a friend to all. I'm glad to call him my friend. God Bless
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To the Workman family. Jimmy was always a special person. Full of life, friendly and kind. I had the pleasure of knowing Jimmy during his time at Highland Golf Course and our time during Rehabilitation @ South Point Cleveland Clinic. Awesome person. He will be missed.

It was a privilege to have you in my rehab for so many years. You brightened the room with you smile and conversations. Thank you for showing your gracious caring for the others attending rehab. But James, you still aren't allowed in Heaven to walk on a treadmill unless your toothpick is in your pocket. This picture is one of my best memories of my retirement day.
