  1. Praying for you sweet Susan. I hope to get to the visitation or funeral. Making plans now. All my love and prayers coming your way. -Sally

  2. Knew Frosty since college days where he was a friend and fraternity brother. Going to miss him and my thoughts and prayers are with all the family. Have to say life was better knowing him. Truly one of the great guys.

  3. I have had the privilege of knowing “Frosty” for many years. I have rafted many a river with him and more importantly I have had many God inspired conversations with him about family. I have been blessed to have known a man who always put God first in his life, I will miss this wonderful man. Susan, my prayers are for you Matthew and Bill may our Father comfort you at today and always.

  4. Sandy and I had the pleasure of working/or having fun with Frosty all the years my boys were at CHHS. We painted together, yelled for our team thru many victories and losses.
    I still have a picture in Sandys study of Sandy Frosty and all the other guys that ran up and down that field every Friday night . Such wonderful memories of a great man. He lived it all and we will miss him!

  5. As a former teacher and coach at Collins Hill High School, I was privileged and honored to work very closely with Frosty for 5 years. His dedication to Collins Hill athletics was always at the forefront and he genuinely loved and supported each and every student that he came in contact with throughout the years. I knew as teacher and coach that I could always count on him to support and help at a moments notice when needed and many, many times it was without even asking for his help and support. He meant so much to me personally and I am honored to say that even as I left Collins Hill to move forward in my career, he still remained a close friend and always invited Becky and I to get-togethers throughout the years and we always looked forward to attending. He remained a true and loyal friend. On the few occasions that I have had the chance to go back and visit at Collins Hill football games and going to the press box to see he and Charlie, he always made me feel at home like I still belonged there. We will miss Frosty. May God bless each and every one of his family and I know that he will be cheering the Eagles on from heaven!

  6. Susan, you and the rest of the family are in our thoughts and prayers. I pray for peace, comfort and that your heart and mind be filled with wonderful memories. God bless you. Love, kel

  7. Frosty was one of a kind. He was quick with a smile and conversation.

  12. I reconnected with James about 2 years ago after 45 years while I was on a trip to Atlanta. It was a very enjoyable visit and I am thankful that it happened. I went to elementary school with James. He was a good piano player, a good first baseman and a great guy. I am praying for the family and wished I had made contact sooner.

  13. Susan and Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. I hope to see you soon.
    Love, Tom

  14. Susan, Howard and I have been in shock since hearing the tragic news on Thursday. We have been constantly praying for you and your family. We pray that God will give you the strength and courage to make it through the weeks and months to come. Jim was a wonderful, always-smiling person. I can only imagine how much you will miss him. As I have always told you, you are the daughter I never had, and I love you dearly. You will continue to be in my prayers on a daily basis.

  15. Frosty was a friend, neighbor, and a great mentor for my sons, Ronnie and Andy. Susan, Matt, and Bill my thoughts and prayers go with you. May Jesus, Our Great Good Shepherd comfort you and heal your hearts. May He fill every empty place left by Jim (your dad) (Frosty’s) passing.

  16. Frosty was a dear friend of my parents for many, many years. I grew up in a close-knit church family and his was a big part of that wonderful group. Frosty and Susan always went out of their way for family events and I will never forget when they visited me in the hospital after the birth of my son. It was during a storm and they still made a point to help welcome Jacob into the world. I think back on that now and realize that was just Frosty’s way – to do things for others without question and with his whole heart. I know that he will be missed dearly by so many. I am blessed to have known him and will miss watching him and my Dad laugh together.

  17. Jim will be missed by Bobby and I, not only as an adviser but a friend to the family. He was an integral part of our family decisions and always had great advice and he listened to us. We will really miss our meetings with him and our voice of reason. We pray for Susan and his family during this difficult time. You will be missed greatly friend.

  20. Frosty was a dear friend and fraternity brother. I thoroughly enjoyed the annual ski trips and listening to him play the piano. He will be greatly missed. Your family is in our prayers. God bless.

  21. Dear, Sweet Susan~I am so very, very sorry for you, the rest of the family and his many, many friends. God bless all of you.

  22. Dear Susan, Bill and Matt. A great husband and father. He always held god and each of you in the highest. I have know him since I was in about the eight grade. He was always there for me in so many ways. As a friend, a spirtual adviser and a man of such reason and calmness about life matters. I will miss him so much. He would talk about each of you and it never failed he would always say how blessed he was to have each of you in his life. A man among men. God bless each of you as you continue your life journey and until you meet again. Love you guys.

  23. We are so sorry to hear of Frosty’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of great loss. Frosty was a wonderful man, a mentor to our sons, and a dear friend. He will be greatly missed. With our deepest sympathy.

  24. My condolences and deepest sympathy to the family. Frosty was a freind and fraternity brother who always made everyone laugh. It was just a few years ago that I spent a day tailgating with him at an Ole Miss – Arkansas game. We talked and laughed about the good ole days at UCA. He will be missed by all!!

  25. “Those we love don’t go away. They walk beside us everyday. Unseen, Unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very Dear!”
    Our thoughts, our prayers and our love to all of Frosty’s family!

  26. I had the great pleasure of sitting beside “Frosty” for 7 years in the press box as his spotter. I was shocked to learn of his passing, and want to express my deepest sympathy to Susan and the whole Plunkett family. I would love to be there today, but due to a recent move to Charlotte, will not be able to. He was a great man and mentor to many, and will be missed by all.

  27. ‘Frosty’ was one the good people in this world and my deepest sympathy goes out to his family. We had some good times in the rare occasions I got to spend with him. He will be remembered.

  28. What a shock it was to hear of Frosty’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through this very difficult time. I know he will be truly missed.

  29. Our condolences to Jim’s entire family. We were clients of Jim’s for several years and he always spoke so highly of his wife and children. He was a good man and will be sorely missed.

  30. Jim originally was our financial planner but after the first meeting, he became our friend. You knew in your gut that this was someone special and that he cared about his clients’ well-being as if it was his own. We will greatly miss our chats with Jim and the occasions that we did meet face to face. Our sincere sympathies, prayers and thoughts are with the family and all those that knew him and loved him.

  31. Frosty was probably the best friend my husband, Leon Westfall, had in Georgia. Their mutual love of golf brought them together at the Collins Hill Golf Club and they played together on several other local courses. Matt also joined them at times. Ironically, I just learned of Frosty’s passing today while I was trying to find his contact information to let him know that Leon had been diagnosed with cancer two weeks ago and is in a local hospital in serious condition. I dread telling Leon the news but appreciate the irony of where he was at the time.
    My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
