Just thinking of Jim today.
Posted by Brandi Combs on 16th July 2016
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

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...
Posted by Brandi Combs on 16th December 2013
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...
Posted by Brandi Combs on 16th July 2013
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!
Posted by Amy Robertson on 16th July 2013
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!
Posted by Jeremy- Katie Gravante on 16th July 2013
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!
Posted by Kari Barnes on 22nd February 2013
Just celebrated ur 31st bday, like u would have wanted us 2!!! Love u & miss u all the time
Posted by Brandi Combs on 22nd February 2013
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!
Posted by Amy Robertson on 18th February 2013
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.
Posted by Scott Combs on 16th July 2012
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.
Posted by Brandi Combs on 16th July 2012
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!!!
Posted by Amy Robertson on 5th July 2012
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!!
Posted by Brandi Combs on 4th July 2012
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!
Posted by Brandi Combs on 25th April 2012
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!
Posted by Amy Robertson on 23rd April 2012
No words to tell you how much you are missed! We are always thinking of you!
Posted by Brandi Combs on 12th April 2012
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!
Posted by Brandi Combs on 17th February 2012
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
Posted by Brandi Combs on 11th January 2012
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!

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.
Posted by Brandi Combs on 27th December 2011
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".
Posted by Amy Robertson on 26th December 2011
Merry Christmas up in heaven Jim, you're in our thoughts this Holiday season and we really miss you!
Posted by Jeremy- Katie Gravante on 14th December 2011
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!
Posted by Brandi Combs on 22nd November 2011
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!
Posted by Amy Robertson on 19th November 2011
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!
Posted by Jeremy- Katie Gravante on 9th November 2011
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!
Posted by Brandi Combs on 20th October 2011
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
Posted by Brandi Combs on 22nd September 2011
We're all holding on to something that used to be there hoping it will come back, yet knowing it won't. Missing you!
Posted by Jeremy- Katie Gravante on 18th September 2011
Oh Yeah Jim the Gators won 33-23 which I'm sure you were watching from Heaven. Miss you man and Go Gators!
Posted by Jeremy- Katie Gravante on 18th September 2011
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
Posted by Brandi Combs on 8th September 2011
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!
Posted by Brandi Combs on 30th August 2011
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."
Posted by Kelly Singer on 28th August 2011
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!
Posted by MaryBeth Klima on 28th August 2011
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
Posted by Kari Barnes on 28th August 2011

Jim always lived by the 2nd golden rule... "If Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."
Posted by Brandi Combs on 25th August 2011
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!
Posted by Kelly Singer on 17th August 2011
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!

(cont) you can email it to me at: jasutherland98@gmail.com. I will compile the stories nicely and give to the kids and to Kelly. Thanks!
Posted by Jean-anne Sutherland on 12th August 2011
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...
