I am beyond tears knowing how hard it is to find comfort in these difficult times, and although there is not much I can say to ease the pain of this wonderful family I can say that if Love could have saved you Jimmy you would live forever my friend! Your souls journey to Heaven took a piece of all of you with it. I am wishing all of you moments of peace today as you lay to rest a piece of yourselves with Jimmy . Everyone will miss who they were when they were with him. Nothing will ever replace that! He left his footprints of kindness and humor wherever he went and when we look back those footprints will always clearly remain for us one day to follow. As for me, today Jimmy I will picture you full of life and happy watching from above. I’m so sorry it was your time to leave. This hole in my heart will remind me we’re never really far apart. I love all of you. Hold one another tight today. You are one of the strongest families I know and I’m honored to call you my own. I love you ALL……Sincerely SueZQ
Sorry to the Family,Prayers
