    Jimbo already missing you. The great times we had and the friendship that grew over the past 25 years, from No. Prov to So. Fla. to Volusia. Neighbors would crack up over the way we spoke to each other and the fun we both had in doing so. Small favor - Have that SAMMY-BUCA waiting for me. Love you as a firefighter, a veteran and certainly a friend. God bless you and may you rest in peace.

Try to remember all the good times you had with your him, as I'm sure he would want us all to.
