My very best friend, I miss you terribly. Long gone are the days we rode tricycles together, played games day and night and joined the Army together. Memories come flooding back to me like it was only yesterday. I love you Jim. Rest in that wonderful, peaceful place we all will be some day... in the presence of Jesus.

To Barbara, Jimmy and Brian... I'm so sorry for your loss, keep his memory alive, and smile when you think of all the fond memories he gave you.
