    Oh, Uncle Jim, the thought of your wisecracks and funny stories, combined with your hilarious orneriness makes me smile. It has been a long time since I saw you last… no harm no foul… just how life is sometimes.

    You always tried to act so tough but I knew you since I was born and you did have a heart of gold.

    To my cousins, I pray you can find peace for the past, the present and the future and if any of you know Uncle Jim’s recipe for his awesome coleslaw I need you to make me some.

    RIP Solider! May you rest in peace… -
