Dear Jimmy,

You were always a kind soul. You wanted for nothing and gave anything to anyone. You were always so kind and loving, the two of us were inseparable – you were always my best friend. I remember when you went off to college and I would wait to see your red Buick to come down the road and pull into the driveway because that meant that I would get another one of your big hugs and a kiss. I always loved those.

Throughout our lives, you would tell us to keep our circles small and to love each and every one of them – you would always be in my circle. I always waited for you to be able to tell you how much I loved you in person and to get another big hug and a kiss. This time when you came back, I knew that you were home. I’ve cherished every single day of our lives together and it is with a broken heart that my best friend and hero, you are no longer with us. I will always love you so much for every single minute of every day, please continue to show me your love and strength.

You will always be my brother.

Love you,


Dear Jimmy,

My dear brother, I have always loved you with all my heart and soul for now and for eternity. I will cherish our memories and continue to love you forever. Please always send me a sign that you are watching over us.

I love you forever and ever,



  1. Daddy,
    Never had I imagined I would be saying goodbye to you so early in life. You have been my best friend and the best Father any girl could ever want or need. You have been the best Grandfather to your “Boy’s” and they will miss you immensely!
    As I sit here and my heart aches, I know you will be looking down upon us and watching over us. Your compassion and love couldn’t and never will be duplicated . I will love you all my life and you will always be in my heart.
    Till I see you again…
    Amy XOXO
