  1. To my friend Jimmy & his family my deepest condolences. Jimmy & I were friends at an early age and parted ways not too long after. His path took him one way and me another and we lost track of each other over the years. Approximately 10 years ago we reconnected and have been best of friends ever since. It saddens my heart that God took him so early in life, but apparently God needed another angel. He will always be my friend & missed. “Strength show not only in only the ability to persist, but the ability to start over.” That is what I will always remember about him. The ability to start over and now he has the chance. RIP my friend, see you again on the other side, BUT not yet.
