I miss him so much…….we had so much fun as kids and adults. We always stuck together. Jimi lived with us a couple times and the kids loved it. He acted like a kid with them. I can’t imagine my life without him in it. I’m so thankful when he married Janet. The Lord put them together and He knew Jimi needed her. I’ll always love him and I’ll think of him often. And always with a smile. The Lord knew it was time for Jimi to get his wings. I love you lil” brother ……thank you Lord for allowing him to be apart of my life. I’ll always have our memories. I’ll always remember him calling and just saying “hey you”
