Dear Jim,
It still seems so unreal that you are gone, we went through the motions the viewing, the funeral and the dinner after. I still expect to see you, or be able to call you and talk about different things, then I think no I can't, I know it is my heart keeping you with me as it does with Dad. You would have been so proud of the turn out to your services, Tracie and Jimmy fulfilled your every wish you wanted with great taste. Mom is the greatest example of strength in faith of The Lord. I am trying to do my best taking care of her I know what I am not so good at, my love makes up for. You have great friends they have been so supportive of Mom and her needs! I Love you and miss so!
