Tombstone Tuesday - In Memory of Uncle Jimmy

My Uncle Jimmy passed away yesterday, April 18, 2011. He was only 45 years old, two years older than me. It is hard to write about the loss of a loved one when the shock of their death is still present - when the grieving process has just begun - but I want to post a song that makes me think of our childhood. Summers spent at grandma's playing outside from dawn to dusk, building blanket tents in the house, telling scary stories to each other in the night when we were supposed to be asleep, sneaking down the stairs in the night to listen to what the grown ups were talking about, and so many other things.

It had been quite a while since I had seen Jimmy, it didn't mean I didn't love him and it doesn't mean I won't miss him.

Rest in peace, Uncle Jimmy. You will never be forgotten

Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.
