    RIP Jim, you will be missed by mom and your family. We had our times didn't we? From you always bringing me home a big mac, to complaining about how grumpy i was when i woke up in the morning. Always driving well below the speed limit down Southside knowing how much it embarrassed me. But then also, giving me the opportunity to own my horses visit London, go on my first cruise And you knowing how talking about the dog pen at dinner would always get a reaction out of me. The last few years of your life were hard i know, you hang on a long time, but i am glad that you were finally able to find peace and go over the bridge with Denali. thank you for being my step father.
