It guts me that I can't be there with you all today. Jim is a huge part of my life. "You're here again?!?!" He used to growel at me. I would tell he couldn't get rid of me. I miss his grumpy act. I don't think there was a week that went by when I was a teen that I didn't darken his doorway. It devastates me that I won't be there now. However my heart will be with you. I love you all.
