Little Jimmy Dickens who passed away on January 2

The Celebration of Life service for Little Jimmy Dickens who
passed away on January 2 this year after cardiac arrest, was held at the
Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday 8, 2015. 
Among
the speakers, friends and artists to pay the great little man their
respect in words and music was Brad Paisley, Eddie Stubbs, Connie Smith,
Pastor Mike Glenn, former President of the Grand Ole Opry Bob
Whittaker, Vince Gill, Steve Wariner, Carrie Underwood, Chris Young,
Bobby Tomberlin, The Old Crow Medicine Show and Roger Willis.
The
service was a very worthy tribute for the “Littlest, But Biggest Star
At The Opry” with stories from Little Jimmy Dickens’s career told by the
speakers; songs that were reflective like “When I Get Where I’m Going”
performed by Brad Paisley, “Little Love Story” by Bobby Tomerlin that
was sung at Little Jimmy’s and his wife Mona’s wedding, the Little Jimmy
Dickens’s hit song “Country Boy” sung by Steve Wariner, “No Tears In
Heaven” performed by Chris Young, Vince Gill’s “Go Rest High On That
Mountain” with harmony vocals by Carrie Underwood. The service concluded
with a prayer and by everyone singing “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”.
In
the famous circle stood Little Jimmy’s guitar, his white boots and hat,
where the great entertainer had stood soo many times since he was
elected in 1948.
Little Jimmy Dickens was 94
years old and left a musical footprint in country music history that is
beyond compare. He is survived by wife Mona and two daughters.
