  13. At times it may be difficult to accept that we can lose someone so dear to us in just a blink of an eye. A loss of a loved one is a burden that God never intended for us to endure. Through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin. (Romans 5:12) The Bible gives comfort to those who put their faith in our loving Creator. It also offers hope to see our loved ones again. God promises that there will be a resurrection. (John 5:28, Acts 24:15). The Bible also tells us that Jehovah God will eliminate death (Isaiah 25:8, 1 Corinthians 15:26), that soon there will be no more sickness, pain or sorrow (Revelation 21:4). May the God of all comfort bless your family. I did not know Jimmy, but please accept my sincere condolences. jw.org (Search: Comfort)

  14. May the lord be with your family in this time of sorrow. Jimmy was a very special person, always full of life and enthusiasm. He had a heart full of kindness and he will truly be missed. He has always kept a special place in my heart and I will never let him go. I hope that his spirit brings you happiness and for his son, carry on his smile and bring joy to the world. ❤️

  15. Jimmy i remember your 21st birthday . I am so lost for words right now. I am going to miss your great big hugs and always that happy face . You had so much respect for everyone.

  16. The lost is beyond words or thoughts. It’s how Jimmy touched our hearts. With that boyish smile and his open heart. How lucky you were to be a part in his life and his great big heart. Taken too soon but with our memories never will we part. We know you are safely in Heaven and always in our hearts.
    We send our love with you and we will miss you Jimmy. A loving father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend till we meet again.
