It's still hard to believe but I can find comfort in knowing your spirit is free.   I'll be forever grateful for how you treated my Mom and the rest of my family, just like your own. You even taught us how to shoot! Your family and friends gave you a proper and dedicated celebration of your life and sendoff to your new home. I pray for peace and comfort to find them (us) as they (we) continue on. You were truly one of a kind and loved by sooo many! Well done Jimmy, you can rest peacefully now. Forever in our hearts.

“Hey, I hear you are looking for a job”! This is how I met Mr. Stone…how he got my name and number is still a mystery but he hired me to drive one of his school buses. I didn’t know him long or very well, but I knew him to be a kind person who always greeted me with a smile on his face. I’m so happy that I had the opportunity to visit with him not very long before he passed, and again, that smile was in place and it just touched my heart to see him in good spirits. 

My deepest condolences to the Stone Family…

My old friend is at Home with our Father now. I remember Jimmy when he delivered flowers for Waldorf Florist and later when he was a Deputy County Sheriff. When I built my home he bought my mobile home. He was always a upbeat and loving person. He just made you smile and laugh whenever we met. He will be surly missed here on earth but we will meet again in Heaven and together give glory to our God. Rest in peace my friend.  Doug

Of all the names you were known by: James, Jimmy, Jim, Pop-Pop, Rolling Stone... the greatest was my hero. You had the world to give and the knowledge too. There are many life's lessons and unforgettable memories that will always be cherished. You had all the compassion and empathy a person could give. Jimmy, you accepted us and showered us with unconditional love for almost 50 years; for that we are forever grateful. To the best DAD and Pop-Pop one could ever ask for... THANK YOU! I've never met anyone who did not have kind words about you. That speaks volumes. You will truly be missed. A great soul serves everyone all the time. A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again. Rest easy God's faithful servant.

The smile in the tribute picture is the smile I will always remember. That is who he was. Smiling, happy, kind, loyal. My husband David and I adored him. He was a credit to the uniform and to CCSO. Jesus has him in his arms, and I have no doubt he and Moose are exchanging stories even as I write this. Rest in eternal peace, dear Jimmy.

You will be missed by many but always loved by all.  He was known by many names Jimmy, James, Stone, Officer Stone, Cpl Stone, Smiley but the name that meant the most to me was Friend.  No man could ever ask for a better friend, go now my friend and rest in peace I know God was waiting at the Pearly Gates for you to welcome you in. RIP

I remember when Jimmy was hired and first joined the squad I was on at the old Army Radio Station Headquarters.   Billy Brown Sr. brought him in from the front desk area and introduced Jimmy to us.   We could all tell Billy really liked Jimmy the way he was grinning and slapping Jimmy on the back that that was all the endorsement an officer needed.    In the 15 to 20 minutes we were there before leaving for our patrols I think Jimmy was one of the closest friends to every officer in that room - he just had that unique gift coupled with his fabulous smile, twinkling eyes and sincere desire to do a good job.    

One of the ongoing jokes in the squadroom was officers would try to sneak up and put their fingerprint, or thumbprint, on a shiney brass butt plate I had on my big old pistol.   I believe Jimmy succeeded more than all the rest simply because I loved and enjoyed being around him and he would cover his intention with asking me about something, or wanting me to look at a report.   I'd never realize he had just put his big thumb print on it until all the other officers would bust out laughing and ribbing me.   I'd look and find it, then start looking around to see who had done it and there would be Jimmy at corner writing a report innocently.   It took a few times before I tumbled to Jimmy being the phantom thumb printer.   I had to laugh with him simply because you just couldn't get mad at Jimmy.

A few years later we worked together in Traffic Safety and he was a real  asset being a school buss company owner/operator/contractor himself.   He would talk with other contractors and drivers when they were upset with me or the Board of Ed Transportation office over some enforcement we had taken.    In fact Jimmy excelled at meeting with upset citizens over speeding or other traffic issues and in no time with his sunny smile their blood pressure returned to normal as did their speaking volume and he work out the problem.   We led local parades, worked a the county fair and handled getting everyone out and on their way home when it shut down each night.   We gave safety talks in elementary schools, even high schools, checked the speed of school buses on the road with our RADAr and filled out a report on each check.   Often when school buses arrived at a shool parking lot to be ready to take kids home, or drop them off we would be there to do spot inspections of the lights, bus interior for cleanness and the driver's licenses while chatting with them.   Volunteer Fire Department events had us present to assist them with traffic control and maintaining the peace and we helped our Explorer Scout program with projects relating to traffic safety and seat belts.

Jimmy was on patrol in he Potomac Heights area and was approaching the Texico Station there on Rt 210.   Suddendly all our radio's heard the emergency alert tone followed by a lookout for an armed gunman who had just robbed that Texico Station and fled on foot.   Jimmy had to hit the brakes to avoid hitting the fleeing gunman and called it in quickly on his radio as he got out, drawing his pistol and ordering the robber to halt and drop his pistol.   Instead the robber turned and fired at Jimmy who returned fire wounding the robber, who turned and continued to flee on foot.    Jimmy pursued him keeping him in sight in his cruiser and guiding in his fellow officers responding.   When the robber entered a secluded home adjacent Potomac Heights Jimmy took up a position preventing the robber to leave the house undetected by Jimmy as the other responding officers, nearly everyone on the agency, began to arrive and surround the home.   The robber was convinced to surrender and to be treated for his gun shot wound.    The reason the bullet had not stopped the robber as Jimmy loved to look super sharp in his uniform and a buddy had given him a box of .38 Special copper jacketed ball ammunition.   Jimmy shined those bullets in his belt loops every day before coming to work and boy did they shine like jewels.   I used to try to get him to buy semi jacketed hollow point ammo because it had far more "stopping" power.    The following day when Jimmy came into the squad room his shiny bullets were gone and replaced with semi jacketed hollow point brand new ammo.   Jimmy proved his courage in the cool manner he performed that day while under gunfire but Jimmy being Jimmy he deflected all the compliments and praise from all and just was our beloved brother Jimmy!

Though I live far away and have since 1999 when I retired Jimmy has often been in my thoughts and when I learned he was fighting cancer and later was in hospice he was in my daily prayers and thoughts.   Though he was suffering I know he was still giving all who visited or attended him that million dollar heart warming smile with his twinkling eyes -  That was what eveyone thought of first who ever met Jimmy.    I'm sure that when Jimmy was at the gate to heaven he lit up the day for St. Peter and his host of angels with that smile.    

I loved Jimmy as if he was my very own brother.   He is pain free and watching over us waiting for us to join him and he can put all the thumbprints he wants on me!
