|Let the memory of Jimmie be with us forever|
"It's been forever and a day it seems...actually it's been 5 years, and 4 days. I'm realizing time doesn't heal all wounds after all. I miss you even more today than I did yesterday, or the day before, or the day before that. Mom too, and Kaden and Ron. We've had to say goodbye to a lot of people this year, people we shared your memories with. The longer time goes on, the more people who knew you are joining you, and I'm making a lot of new friends. My only regret is the new people in my life didn't have a chance to meet you. I can't possibly explain how much I love and miss you to someone you've never met, they just can't understand. Words can never represent my feelings enough. I'll be keeping your memory alive until the day I see you again. I love you daddy, I know you know that already, but it's always worth repeating. ❤"
"Hey Bro - I imagine that you have the Golden Hills are wired up for wifi by now. Looking forward to seeing you again.
Before and After..."
"I miss you daddy. People keep telling me time heals all wounds, but that couldn't be further from the truth. It's been exactly four years this evening that you've been gone, and I miss you as much as I did the day you left, and it hurts just the same. One day you, mom, and I will be together again, but until then I keep your memory alive. I live you daddy."
"Thinking of you today, please know you are missed as much as ever. Keep shining that light down from Heaven Jimmie - it's what sustains your family and reminds your friends that love lives on forever.
~Vicky and Bud Rodoni"
"Missing you, Jimmie. I know you're watching over your family from Heaven."
"Happy Birthday my friend."
"Today you would have been 68 years old. I still celebrate your birthday, because the day you took your first breath, is the best reason to celebrate. The day you took your last breath was the worst day of my life, but the beginning of something beautiful. Since that day, I appreciate everything and everyone in my life so much more than I did before. I have gratitude that can't be measured, only appreciated. I love my life, I wish you were still physically in it, but I feel you with me every moment. Butterflies perch on me, white feathers often fall upon my shoulders, I know that's your way of letting me know you're still with me and always will be. You are the best daddy a girl could ever wish for, I love you beyond measure, and I'll always be daddy's little girl, no matter how old I get. I would do anything to have just one more day with you, one more hug, and make you one more banana cream pie. Kaden has your mannerisms, it brings me comfort, and makes me smile from ear to ear. You made huge footprints and left a legacy, I'm so proud of you for being everything you were and are. I miss you. I love you. I think of you often. You are missed by so many people, you made a huge impact on this world, I love you so much, Happy Birthday daddy!;❤❤❤"
