Derek, Kim and boys,
I am so very, very sorry for your loss.
I will always remember Uncle Jimmy when I was a little girl and Aunt Joan was still alive and well. This is how I remember him most. He was always so sweet and loving to me.
I don't know if you know this, but after Aunt Joan died, he came to visit me once as an adult. I don't even remember where I was living at the time but it was many years ago. When he came to see me, he brought me some of her cook books and a casserole dish. He told me he wanted me to have them because he knew that I would use and treasure them. I did and still do. I still have them to this day.
My love and prayers are with you all .
