    I can’t bear to see this. This hurts my heart so badly. Love and miss you Uncle Jimmy. I wish this hadn’t happened. I wish I had more time with you. Even though we didn’t keep in constant contact, you were never forgotten about, you were always my family. You’ve been a part of my life since I was born. Some of my earliest childhood memories involve you. This doesn’t feel real, I wish it weren’t. My only comfort is knowing you are reunited with your Dad and are at peace without earthly struggles and pain any longer. Rest in peace Uncle. I will miss you forever.
