|My memories are keepsakes from which I'll never part, God has you in his keeping; I have you in my heart.|
This online memorial was created in memory of one of the greatest men that ever graced this earth, a loving father, a compassionate husband, a wonderful son & brother and the best friend some of us ever knew... Jim Singer, 29, born on February 22, 1982 and given his angel wings on July 16, 2011. We will remember Jim forever. Please share your stories, pictures or a favorite song that reminds you of Jim. This website is gifted with love to Jim's children, J.R. and Ashlee so they may "visit" with and remember their phenomenal Daddy that we all loved so dearly. Jim, Kelly, J.R. & Ashlee - we love you, the Combs Family
"This day always brings tears. This website is wonderful to have and reflect on. A collection of memories. I just went back and read all the "stories" that were shared and it brought back so many memories that were forgotten. thinking of you today, Jim. Birthday wishes to heaven!"
"Just thinking of Jim today."
"Although we haven't written in some time, there's not a day that goes by that we don't think of you... This week has been especially tough... It would have been your 13th wedding anniversary... I took Kelly out & did my best to make her laugh, our memories of you always bring smiles & tears. As we said our goodbyes, DeeDee received his angel wings! I saw so many rainbows this week, I know you and other loved ones were waiting to bring him home. I still can't believe it's been 5 years since we lost you! You would be so proud of your children! They are both growing into wonderful little people. I know you watch over them! We love & miss you so!!! ❤️, Brandi, Scott, Logan & Layni"
"Thinking of you an extra-much today, my friend. Birthday wishes to heaven. Happy 33rd. We miss you always and keep your memory close to our hearts."
"It never rains all day in Florida, but today tears are pouring down from Heaven... I know you're waiting for the right time to send a rainbow. You would be so proud of J.R. and Ashlee and the incredibly strong mother Kelly is to them. I just know you're watching over them and smiling from above. We love & miss you!"
"This summer Ashlee was on the boat with us & Layni was yelling to go faster, AJ climbed into my lap & said she didn't like to go fast. I said "you don't??? Do you remember your Daddy's boat, you loved going fast on it." Her reply "I don't remember Ms. Brandi, but will you please tell me about it". I remember how much they idolized you and times like that simply break my heart, but I'm happy to tell them all the stories they'll let me. Gone, but never forgotten! xoxo"
"It's so hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember... we had some great times! Really wish we were planning your bday celebration instead of planning on releasing balloons to Heaven..."
"Logan put the ornament with your picture at the top front of the tree so that we can all remember the great times with Mr. Jim, and he wanted "you" at the very top with the angel. During this holiday season please be with us and continue to remind us of your eternal presence. Hugs to Heaven!"
"After wiping my eyes & beginning work, I made my first call of the day. I needed to secure a storage unit, so I called Judy. She is out of town, but says her brother will call me... his name is Jim. She calls back and says Jim is not available today, so she'll send another... his name is J.R. *Every day reminders that you're not gone, but have only slipped into the next room..."
"For some moments in life there are no words.
We adapt, we accept, but we never forget!
Missing you like crazy, but embracing your memory!"
"Thinking of you today and always. We love and miss you very much and find comfort in the daily things that remind us of you! Hugs to heaven my friend!"
"After 2 years your still in our hearts and your family in our prayers! We miss you like crazy! We can't wait till that day we get to reunite and catch up on some great memories!"
"Just celebrated ur 31st bday, like u would have wanted us 2!!! Love u & miss u all the time"
"Find me an angel to send a birthday wish to Heaven... today would be your 31st... The girls have BFF broken heart necklaces & Logan said they remind him of you, not bc your heart broke, but because he has a broken heart since you went to Heaven. You're so greatly missed, but we treasure each & every memory we were blessed to share with you!"
"Thinking of you Jim. Another new year has come and your birthday is 4 days away.... just popping in to send you our thoughts and love. Forever missed."
"1yr has come and gone. As I look back on the year that was it's hard to imagine you wouldn't be around to enjoy the ups and downs the highs and lows the goods and bads but that unfortunately was the case. I've missed you dearly even thought I saw you a couple times when we went on the boat this past saturday. It may not have really been you but it felt good believing just for a sec it was."
"1 year ago... you had finally convinced Scott to take the boats to Clermont & go to the tikibar on Lake Minneola. Instead we got that call that changed so many lives forever. This past Saturday we celebrated your memory at that tikibar. Every song reminds us of you, every smile, every cowboy hat, every salt & pepper head... Not a day goes by that we don't wish for just one more!!!"
"It's been almost a year since you left this earth and I don't think there has been a single day that you haven't been a topic of conversation or a thought in our minds. We miss you more than words can say. I don't think you can truly understand what an impact someone has on your life until they are no longer here with you. We continue to pray for you, for Kelly, & kiddies. Lots of love!!"
"4th of July just isn't the same without you! Last 5 years our families spent it together making some crazy memory. My last convo with you, you said "I PROMISE, ONE OF THESE YEARS WE'RE GONNA HAVE A GREAT 4TH". What I wouldn't give for one more... This one's for you!"
"Celebrate J.R.'s 6th birthday with him yesterday. I know you were there, saw so many signs all day that pointed to you. We miss you dearly & think of you always!"
"No words to tell you how much you are missed! We are always thinking of you!"
"We should be planning our Memorial Day weekend trip to Singer Island discussing where to stay & if we'll get another ticket for parking the boat trailer at the ramp b/c the Manager at Marriott will cause a stink again. If I can catch more hermit crabs & stink up your boat again? If J.R.'s buddy will be at the Sailfish Marina? You're missed, but not forgotten!"
"About to walk out the door headed to Singer Island. I know you would've LOVED to be here with us this weekend, celebrating your 30th birthday next week... all your closest friends together. Brandi & Scott, Katie & Jeremy, Amy & Mitch, Kari & Robert, Mary Beth & Tony, etc. We're gonna light it up for you buddy! "Just don't use the ice bucket, not for ice at least"! Miss you so much! xoxo"
"It was our first New Year's Eve without you in over 5 years. We sent our love to Heaven and reminisced about the good times gone. We spent the evening with friends, knowing very well what you & Scott would’ve been doing. It was hard without you there, but in our hearts we know you weren’t far. You will never be forgotten as a part of us went with you that day. We love & miss you!"
"Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
~Rossiter Worthington Raymond"
"It sure left its mark on us, we sure left our mark on it.
We let the world know we were here, with everything we did.
We laid a lot of memories down, like tattoos on this town."
"So, you got to spend Christmas with Jesus this year... but, you were greatly missed here! I gave Scott an ornament with your pic in your cowboy hat that you always wore on the boat (I cut out the pink towel, but we all remember it being there), it brought tears to us all. We miss you so and I know Ashlee Jo & J.R. do too! Layni always says "I love you up to Mr. Jim in Heaven & back"."
"Merry Christmas up in heaven Jim, you're in our thoughts this Holiday season and we really miss you!"
"Hey Jim just letting you know we were thinking about you this holiday! Couple of days ago Brody asked where Ashlie Jo daddy was, and we tryed our best to explain, then he said is that why Ashlie is sad sometimes? And with a tear in my eye I said Brody anytime Ashlie is sad you go up to her and give her a BIG HUG! He said ok Daddy I will. Your in our hearts this holiday season!"
"Well the Gator season is over! I guess it started as bad as it ended! Tailgating was as good as it could be I guess! Was a little hard getting used to you not being there! We missed you this season and always thinking about you!"
"I ♥ my kids...
Layni: "Mommy, I really wish Mr. Jim would come back to Ashlee, Ms. Kelly & J.R.", Mommy: "Me too baby, but you know he can't, he's in Heaven & he has his Angel wings already", Layni: "But Mommy, if he hurt his Angel wings, he already has bad knees, so if he hurt his wing & fell back to Earth, I would give him my Dora bandaiids". ♥"
"Congrads on Tony Stewart winning the Cup!!! It was a exciting race and I was pulling for him! Well this weekend is FLORIDA vs florida state, and was suppose to be your first game going to it! Kinda Sucks! I miss you man! Hope you and the Big Man will be looking down on the Gators Saturday, Heaven knows we need it!"
"We're thinking of you a lot lately! I've been having several photo shoots down by the lake and there isn't a single time that I look out at the lake that I don't picture your truck pulling your boat and all of us out on the water. This past summer was definitely the best! I can't believe how quickly the time goes :( Really miss your radiant smile and personality!"
"Hey Jim things are not going so well with the Gators this season! Just one of those years! We sure do miss you at the tailgates though, not a game goes by that your memory doesn't come up! Last Saturday we were talking about your great tailgate skateboarding:) You can never be replaced and your memory will live forever among us!!! Go Gators!"
"We will hope, We will pray, We will re-live everyday. We will shout out your name. We will laugh, We will cry, shake our fists at the sky. But we will not say goodbye... Love & miss you, Scott, Brandi, Logan & Layni"
"We're all holding on to something that used to be there hoping it will come back, yet knowing it won't. Missing you!"
"Oh Yeah Jim the Gators won 33-23 which I'm sure you were watching from Heaven. Miss you man and Go Gators!"
"Sept 17,(Tennessee @ Florida) As we started setting up the tailgate at 6a.m. Everything was going as usual except for one thing, one void, Jim was not there! Not in person that is! With his memory on the side of the trailer & his picture on the door He was there in all our hearts"
"God did not take you away from us... He gave you to Heaven so your light could shine over all the world. We miss you & think of you everyday!"
"7.16.11 was the worst day ever, everyone was at the Singer house crying when J.R. (5) grabbed my hand & said "Ms. Brandi, why is everyone crying, don't they know my Daddy's in Heaven relaxin' with God. No work, no chores, just relaxin' with God.""
"Thanks for flashing the light in J.R.'s room to let me know you're still watching over us. We love and miss you!"
"We think of you everyday and share stories between ourselves wishing we could relive some of the happier times. You are so missed, we love you"
"I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part. God has you in his arms,I have you in my heart! Miss u so much Beans"
"Jim always lived by the 2nd golden rule...
"If Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.""
"8 rainbows in under 4 weeks... 4 of them in one week alone... Jim knows how much we all miss his smile, but just look around, he is smiling down from Heaven for all the world to enjoy! We miss you terribly!"
"Jim-I know you are with me, I see your signs...the rainbows and lightning bugs. Can't remember seeing so many in my whole life. I love you!"
""I have only slipped away into the next room, I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to eachother, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Play, smile, think of me. All is well." -Henry Scott Holland"
"(cont) you can email it to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will compile the stories nicely and give to the kids and to Kelly. Thanks!"
"What a beautiful tribute - to such a beautiful and loving man.
Friends of Jim's: I would like to compile a "book" of letters, from each of you, for JR and Ashlee. If you would take a moment and write a story about Jim..."
"If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I would walk right up to heaven and bring you home again. No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it and only God knows why."
"now the kids are in bed and I just cry...I love you so much. I ask God to send you back too."
"Jim-today J.R. hit his head & look down & there was a penny...he knew it was you trying to kiss his tears away. Ashlee talks about you every night before she closes her eyes, she loves to tell me how you held her when she was a baby. She still prays to God to send her daddy back"
"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,love leaves a memory no one can steal. We have memories we'll never forget,from the last few New Year's we'll never regret.Then 4th of Julys and birthday parties in between,boating and the reunion which you were a dancing machine.<3 you KJ"
"A Million Words Would Not Bring You Back, I Know Because I've Tried. Neither Would A Million Tears, I Know Because I've Cried."
"Jim we miss you so much!! You were not only a GREAT friend but a even better husband and father. I will miss Jim's smile and his great dance moves. We love you Kelly, J.R., Ashlee Jo. We are so glad you are part of our lives!!!"
"Logan said this morning "Mom, I wish God would give us our angel wings too so we can go see Mr. Jim again & we can all be happy together." Jim touched everyone's life and he is greatly missed!"
"I will always remember his smile that lit up the room. He was always a happy person & could brighten your day by being in his presense! I miss you so much Beans!!!"
"“A light that burns twice as bright lasts only half as long”. Although we know that your beauty is now shared with the rest of the world as your light shines down from Heaven, we can’t help but to still miss you terribly! KJ-My memorial poem is posted under the "stories" tab. <3"
