I think of Jim everyday. I get through my days without him by remembering our many times together doing so much of what we loved to do. We spent so much time talking too. I can remember when he was out of town at another truck stop working and he would call me. We would talk for hours about where he was and I could actually feel I was there cause he was so vivid with his stories. I miss shopping with him. We spent a lot of time talking on our walks. We shared our fears our hopes and our dreams. He was so witty. He and I share so much the heart bigger than most of always putting others before ourselves. I mourn his loss every day and some days it is so unbearable. So wish he could have lived. He had so much living to do. Miss him so much.

James, Think of you everyday in all I do. So many times wish I could still share my life with you. To this day I still ask why you had to go. We need you so much. I know you are still with me you show me in many ways but it is not the same as seeing you, hearing your laughter, and talking with you. I replay your memories over and over. So glad we spent a lot of time together because I treasure all those memories.

James is the best brother ever! He is beyond the most kind, caring, generous and loving person I have ever known. He made laughter with everyone he met. I am lucky enough to be his sister. He is so missed.

You were my best friend and I am so thankful for every day I got to spend with you. You taught me so much about relationships, friendship, and about love. I am forever grateful that I had you in my life. You changed me for the good in so many ways. I hear your laughter often and replay all the memories that only you and I shared. I love you always Jim. Until we meet again my friend.
