Please pray for our family today as we say goodbye to my cousin Jimmy. He will leave a big hole in the family. All week I've been hearing his voice in my head, and I keep thinking I'll hear him teasing me about bringing such a big cheesecake to the supper tonight. I keep expecting his big hug, hard enough to make your eyes pop.
In my mom's family we had 11 cousins, two are gone now-my brother in 1977, and now Jimmy, both in auto accidents. We lost Mom that way too-I think our family should stay out of cars-my youngest had a bad accident, too, but he miraculously recovered.
I'll always love ya, Jimmy!
