“If only I was half the man my dog thinks I am.”

To my family and friends…

I am writing from where I now live, heaven above.

There is no more sadness, pain, or tears… just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy, just because I am out of sight,

Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.

When you think of life on earth and all those wonderful years,

Remember that you are only human; there will be times of tears.

Do not be afraid to cry, it does help to release the pain,

Remember that there would be no flowers if there were no rain.

When you walk down the street and you have me on your mind,

I will be walking in your footsteps, only a half a step behind.

And when you feel that gentle breeze or the wind upon your face,

Know that it is me giving you a big or sweet embrace.

And when it is time for you to leave the body and be free,

Remember you are not really leaving… you are just coming to see me.

I will always still love you from this new home where I live,

And remember I will be watching over you,

Smiling and sending you my love.

“Along the way you will stumble and perhaps fall.  Get up, chastened but wiser and continue on down that road of life. I may not be walking with you all the way, or even much of the way, Please do not be sad if I am not there in person, alive and well when you need me… I will be watching, and smiling and cheering you on.”

… Love, Jim

Jim will forever be remembered for his big smile and even bigger heart. He was kind and pleasant to all who knew him, and in spite of his laid-back style, he was BIGGER than life itself!! I had the priviledge of knowing him from junior high on through graduation from highschool.

You did a mighty fine job of raising such a wonderful son whom I know made you very proud!
