These pictures were sent to me, today, by J's brother (above) and his wife, who is pictured here, as well. The young man in the pictures is their son, Jimmy, who died in a tragic traffic accident in February of this year. He was 36 years old.

I asked permission to share these pictures. It was granted freely.

We went to Jimmy's funeral service. Everyone spoke of his ready smile, which is pictured here. I am grateful to his parents for allowing me to post these remembrances of a sweet young man who was taken from us so abruptly.

I firmly know (not just believe, but know) that we will see one another again. Jimmy was a Christian who accepted Jesus into his heart as a teen.

May God Bless his family and comfort us all.

What a sweet smile -

Ruby and Charlie look pretty much the same. I'd have known them, even after all these years! They've been in our prayers for a while, now.

I saw his picture before I read what you wrote and I thought, "That guy has a great smile." I was shocked then to read that he was killed. Oh my. I am glad to know that he was a Christian and I pray that his family has adjusted to his being gone.
