I remember Jimmy from High School, we graduated the same year, ’69. Haven’t seen him since then, I moved away right after graduation, but I do fondly remember Jimmy. He was a HELLOFA nice guy. Had a warming smile. My heart goes out to you in your loss, its all our loss.
Dear family…I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Your loved one will be missed by family and friends he will not be forgotten by our heavenly father. We often wonder can the dead really live again. Jesus’ words found at (John 5:28,29) says there will be a resurrection so your loved one will have the prospect of living forever. (Psalms 37:29) I hope this will bring you comfort knowing that you have an opportunity to see him again to share more wonderful times together.
