|I'd like to thank...
...a husband, a father, a brother, a best friend, an uncle. I'd like to thank you Jimmy for all the beautiful memories you've left all that crossed your path.
Your love of life and the way you've captured that in your work is here for all of us to cherish forever.
When I think of my uncle, I think of his beautiful home and his beautiful lake and the beautiful and vibrant world he's created around himself.
I suppose the grass is always greener but I always admired him for the strength he had to keep and share these things with all of us. Thank you Jimmy, I love you.
