There are thousands of memories I have of Jim. And I will always have those memories. He was not just a friend he was a brother. I told Jim many times that I wished I was more like him in many ways. What I never did tell him is that I looked up to him. I looked up to Jim because of the way he unselfishly worked until it hurt provide for his family and to Jim if he could hear me right now I would say rest easy my friend you're a wonderful father you praised three incredibly strong children who can all more than take care of them self in this world because of the things you taught them. God has a seat for you at the table and it was good brother next time it will be even better. There was a time I did not have a heart now I do and that heart is broken by your loss broken for your family your mother brother sister your children grandchildren and all those people that you got so very much too. Say a prayer for us left on here you were one of the good ones you are one of those that when we lose them I ask God why not me . Why take a a good man when I deserve it so much more but it's not my place to question God. I will continue to pray for your family and I will keep those thousands of memories in my heart and cherish them you talk more people than just your children things I learned a lot from you myself rest in peace brother hopefully when my work's done I will make it up there with you I always want to have words that will ease people's pain but there are no words that can do that but I do have prayers and those will keep going up.
