2011 is almost a memory. Hard to believe but true.
One of my latest memories is having dinner with our favorite Uncle Jim who live in Georgia. We were pleased when he agreed to have dinner with us and our son and his family right before Christmas. He’s always tons of fun and has so much to share. Needless to say we all love Uncle Jim!!!
Here is my family with Uncle Jim right before Christmas.
Isn’t he handsome (he’s in the Blue Sweater). Over the years this man has shown all of us just how special he is. He is one of the finest men I have known in my life. He was always kind, loving, caring, considerate and compassionate …as well as intelligent and thoughtful. Having him in our lives was a great gift from God.
You know he mentioned he wasn’t feeling well and we thought it was because of his last surgery and you know…..you don’t always have a great appetite after surgery and he had five!!! You’d never know it as he just does and goes on without complaint. He just had his 88th Birthday and joked about how he had to renew his Drivers License and wouldn’t have to do that again until he was 98!!! He always makes us laugh.
Well on December 27th Uncle Jim was taken to the ER as he just didn’t feel well and he passed away within 3 hours. His lungs were full of fluid. We are just devastated to lose this inspiration in our lives. We will be saying our goodbyes tomorrow.
Thank You Uncle Jim for always being there for us and for making us laugh and cry and everything in between. I hope you know how important you were to us and how much we adored you.
I will never forget you…..
