Betty Nettles says:
Bob and I have known James or (Jim) as we called him for many years. He came into our lives when he was a salesman for Webbers Office Supply in Tullahoma, TN. He came to sell office supplies to our printing business, Nettles Printing. While he was there, he stayed and talked with Bob and and they created a working relationship. After some time and much talking, they found that he would be an asset to the printing shop as a salesman. He became a partner and salesman for Nettles/Crosslin Printing. Our relationship with Jim has lasted for 40 years. Betty Nettles
Brandy O’Kelley Bagley says:
I never met Mr. Crosslin. I graduated with his youngest daughter, Susan. I knew his oldest through Kathy Damewood and choir
at CHS. My heart breaks for their loss as well as that of their mother.
No, I never had the opportunity or honor to meet Mr. Crosslin; but having known both of his girls and seeing/experiencing firsthand their gentle spirits and God loving souls, I can’t help but to grieve the loss of their beloved dad. Because of the wonderfully sweet girls I know his daughters to be, I know he must have instilled so many of their amazing traits that shine through. And what a testimony to his love of God and family.
Susan, Michelle, I’m keeping you both in my heart and in my prayers today and the difficult days to come. Just remember that those who love us and who we love, never REALLY leave us; so long as we keep their memory alive in our hearts and their name on our lips, they will be remembered always.
If there is ANYTHING I can do to help y’all out, don’t hesitate to let me know. I love y’all!
