So sorry to hear of Mr. Primm's passing. He always came by Friendly Finance with water melons and all kind of fruit and veggies. Always a joker. He will surely be missed. Prarying for the family.

Heaven has received a precious soul. Mr. Primm was someone that when you saw him you just smiled. He was sweet, kind and a friend to many. He will be missed. May God wrap all of you up in his arms and show you his love.
Kirk and Sue Tedeton
