A child should never preceed their parents in death. Jimmy did and it ripped the heart and soul out of our family. Our only solace is he is with our Lord. Just wish I could feel his hugs again. When Jimmy hugged you knew you were hugged. Why do the good die young? Pray for his c;hildren that they will know him throuh our memories.
