I have millions of memories of my brother Jimmy but I just don’t know how to narrow it down to 2000 characters! Jimmy was more than 2000 characters, Jimmy is more he’s a friend a brother a father a grandfather a husband a son most important Jimmy was SAVED AND IS HE’S WITH HIS SAVIOR! I will mention one memory about Jimmy, I would always pray for my brothers and sisters to accept Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior as well as their children and one night out of blue Jimmy called me and told me that he accepted Christ as his savior! Best memory ever

One of the memories that I’ll always remember is when he sat on jacob when he was a new born lol I had him on the couch and my dad went and sat on the couch and I said pa you’re on my son. And he said oh I didn’t feel him or see him. Jacob’s wasn’t hurt nor did he cry, when his grandpa sat on him lol….. my dad was always a hard working man and always did what he could to provide for his family, even being a mechanic on the weekends, he always had someones car parked out in our drive way because he was going to work on them. I might have not seen it or thought of it that way when I was younger because you know how teenagers are lol but now that I’m older I see all that he did was for the best interest of his family. I’ll always remember you pa. Love you.
