I first met Jimmy almost 30 years ago. At the time, he seemed a little shy, but as our paths continued to cross, a friendship developed. I learned quickly that Jimmy could do almost anything when it came to construction and that he was a tireless worker. I also learned that he could work all day around dust and dirt and still look the same as he did when the day started. I have no idea how he stayed so clean, but he did!

As I look around our house today, I see his work at every turn. Our driveway, outbuilding, hand railings, piano room, plumbing, fencing, etc.. are all fruits of Jimmy's labor.

As we spent more and more time together through the years, I had a chance to get to know Jimmy beyond his trade. We talked about all sorts of things and just life in general. We watched each other's children grow and shared the challenges of getting older ourselves. I'll miss our talks, the smiles, and the laughter.

While the things Jimmy built and fixed will stand for many years to come, his most lasting accomplishment is the love he shared for his friends and family. He was always there for me and my family and I'll miss him dearly.

I know that time has a way of healing wounds and I look forward to the day when I mostly remember the good times we shared, but I think there will always be a little sadness that his time was cut short.

I am thankful for the privilege of calling Jimmy my friend and even more thankful that he was my brother in Christ because our faith in Christ means that death is not final and we will one day share laughter again.
