Jimmy, I will miss your guidance, your love and patience. You embodied Christ’s love for everyone who was lucky enough to cross your path. I owe everything good I am or will become to you. Your live was a testament to the riches we will find in our lives when we count our blessings moreover our worldly possessions. You showed me how to love and in your final weeks you taught me the greatest gift of all and that was how to be second. I love you and always will, for all you did for me, for your family I can never repay. May the God we believe in have prepared a place for you to finally rest from your years of service.
