Uncle Jimmy I miss u so much. There is not a day that goes by I don't think of you. I know u are in a better place and not hurting anymore. I just know your drinking coffee with the angels. Save a cup for me and one day we will see each other again. I love you so much.

From the first day I met Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Jean, I knew they was the most wonderful people I had ever met. Carl and I would go down and spend the weekend, you never stopped laughing, That was a pair, they always made us feel welcome, and you knew you was loved. Uncle Jimmy knew I love the big ships. he would say, "Betty, I know how you love the ships, there is a big one in port do you want go see it?" I would giggle and say YES Uncle Jimmy. off we went. Him Aunt Jean, me Carl. He took me down in the port. Close as you could legally be, back in the day. I had a fit. He was laughing, He thought that was so funny how excited I got when I saw it. especially the first time, yes I squealed, he looked at Aunt Jean and Carl, they all busted out laughing. I talked about it for years. Carl said yes Uncle Jimmy she is a squealer, he really laughed then. I am going to miss him. His smile would light up a room. Past few years when we went to Stephenies (my daughters) house there, he was there, it was such a wonderful pleasure seeing him. He will be missed. I loved him dearly. Sorry for your loss Melinda, and lee, I love you Your in my prayers.
