  8. Jimmie was a friend of mine we grew up together and he was someone I always admired he cared for me and my family . Respected my parents and made them laugh with his awkward Spanish lol . It is only now that all those times we spent together have come crashing down on me knowing that I will never hear his laughter and smiling face . But most of all I will miss him him dearly for he was a brother to me . I can honestly say that he made a difference in my life and I am better for having crossed paths with him . Love ya Jimmie always .
