Remembering Jimmy Combest: From near neighbor

By Von Price

The story on Jimmy Combest, he was the son of Dewey and Ethel Willis Combest.

They lived about a half mile down the road from where I grew up on our farm. My brother has been in contact with Jimmy for years. They went to grade school together and remained in contact over the years.

His sisters Lena, Laverne, and Shorty all live in Louisville, Ky.

I remember their house was always so beautiful - a big white two story house with a long drive way.

When you are a child things like that always seem so much larger.

I have very fond memories of his parents and his sisters and I am very sad to hear of his passing.
