Condolence & Memory Journal

I was heart broken to hear of Jimmy's passing. He was a good friend to all and was so full of life. One of the funniest young men in school. Always looked forward to what new crazy and silly things he would come up with during study hall. Rest In Peace Jimmy.. See you again one day.. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Diane, Jim, Angie, and Heidi,

Jimmy was such a nice young man, always happy, always pleasant. I'm sure this was mostly due to his wonderful childhood with a loving mom, dad, and sisters! I hope that this will bring you comfort; I always knew he adored all of you.

One of the last opportunities that I had to speak with him, I mentioned that his lovely daughters were female versions of him...he beamed with pride! I hope they always remember how proud he was of them.

I wish I had words to ease your pain; I'm not sure what those words would be or I would gladly say them. Just know that I truly care...
