Uncle Jimmy,
Even tho its been years since we've been together, you have always been an inspiration to me overcoming the many obstacles in your life. May you have a beautiful homecoming with your family that will be waiting with open arms. If others wonder why you are missing I will tell him you've gone fishing. Love forever.
