Re: It's a disgrace Carthage never honored Jim on the 50th
Just more of the same, as far as how Jim has not received the recognition he's always deserved. It sounds to me that the Ritter family only wants Carthage to honor Tex, and no one else! Never mind that Jim was from there too, and certainly more well known than him. This is just so selfish on the part of the Ritter family. I think it's just pure jealousy. I would hope that Tex would even be appalled by his family's behavior if he knew what they were doing! It is a mystery that Mary chose Nashville to open the Jim Reeves Museum, but had Jim buried in Texas--unless that was his wish. As many others have said here, I think Jim would be remembered more today if his final resting place had been in Nashville.
