Uncle Jim, my heart hurts so much knowing I didn’t get the chance to tell you I loved you one more time. I’m almost 50 and have so many happy memories of you. I still remember every time you came to see my daddy you always brought a big bag of candy and dumped it in the floor for all the kids to grab. I remember I had to ride with you in your truck when you came to see my dad in Las Vegas and we had the wreck and I woke up in the floor board wondering what happened I can still remember your smile, always laughing... I will forever miss you. I’ll always love you Uncle Jim
