My precious son, when God took you home he also took a part of us with you. We miss you so much and think about you everyday. Some days we find it hard to get out of bed. You were a wonderful son to us and I know you are in a happy place now. We will not say good-bye, because we know that we will see you again when we are called home. Till we see you again, you will forever be in our hearts.

Love you forever,
Mom & Dad

Uncle Jimmy,
I can't look nor hear a bike and not think it's you now. I remember you took me out on your bike when I was really little, maybe five, and I loved it. I think we scared my mom and nan with that. I think I might want a bike now. I wish you were here to tell me all the ones that are good and why. I have to look back at the good times, and I keep remembering when you walked through our screen door on New Years Eve. I'll never forget that because it was hilirious! We all miss you so much, nothing will be the same. I'm so lucky to call you my Uncle. So proud of you with everything you ever had and done in your life. I was just talking about getting my first tattoo, and I only wanted to go where you go, like you always said, I HAD to go where you go to make sure it was safe. I know when I go with Little Jimmy to the same place, you'll be there with me in spirit. I know it in my heart.
I love you and miss you so much. Everybody does. God has his reasons, and we all need to trust that. I know your happy where you are now and you'll be that way FOREVER. You can now rest in peace.

I love you, alwayssssssssssssss.

Mr. Charlie and Miss Shirley, I am so sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. When I heard of this I started thinking about all the times I would be standing on the bus stop waiting to go to Farm Fresh for work and Jimmy would pull up and yell get in girl I'll take you to work. He was a kind person and even though I haven't seen him in years he will be missed on this earth I'm sure. My heart goes out to you and your family.
