GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN..I MISS YOU JIMMY 'MY DAUGHTER TRACIE,WAS BORN THE DAY OF HIS FUNERAL.I DIDNT GET TO GO ,BUT AS I AWOKE FROM REST AFTER HER BIRTH, I HEARD SOME ONE SAY,'SHE'S BEAUTIFUL' I LOOKED TOWARD THE DOOR AND SAW JIMMY ,I ASKED IF HE COULD COME IN.THEY TOLD ME ,NOONE WAS THERE

Jimmy and I went to school together,4th thru the 10th I quit to go in the Army. I never heard nor saw Jimmy again. I did 3 tours in Nam. When I came home in November '69 some one told me of Jimmy. Hardly a day goes by now with out thinking of him. Today is the 1st time I have been able to even write anything about him. I think Jimmy is in Heaven. He's waiting on all who will make it to Heaven. Rest easy Brother. Welcome Home! GTG118
