  1. My last memory of you alive is making me a turkey sandwich for work the next day. You took care of me until the very end; you always said you would. I tried to take care of you the best I could; I hope you felt that. Love you dad.

  3. My heart goes out to Jimmy’s family.. God all the memories over the many years, hell I got you your first job putting in pools. I’m going to miss him he’s been like a brother to me. love you Jimmy.

  4. To my dear brother and sweet sister, whom I love;
    The moment that you left, my heart was split in two,
    one side is filled with memories, the other side died with you.
    Remembering you both is easy, I do it everyday,
    but missing you is heartache, that never goes away.
    I hold you both tightly in my heart and there you will remain,
    you see life will go on without you, but never be the same.

  6. Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care.
    Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.
    You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.
    He’d hope that you could carry on the way you always do.
    So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,
    The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
    Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
    Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,
    That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here,
    And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.
    For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
    And he will live forever locked safely within your heart.

  8. Death is nothing at all.
    It does not count.
    I have only slipped away into the next room.
    Everything remains as it was.
    The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
    Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
    Call me by the old familiar name.
    Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
    Put no sorrow in your tone.
    Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
    Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
    Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
    Let it be spoken without effort
    Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
    There is unbroken continuity.
    Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
    I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
    All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
    One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
    How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.

  10. Mr. Jimmy wiggled into my heart as he does, moving from my client to my dear friend. He called me his angle and I tried to maintain that status for him. He evey day made me feel appreciated and loved, I hope he knew what that meant to me. I will miss his laugh and our ‘girly talks’ , and mostly that someone who sincerely gives a poo.. Xoxo
