Today is the 11th anniversary of when your uncle Jimmy died. Those of us who knew him will always miss him - and I am so sad that you never were able to meet the man we named you after.
You have so many of his traits: you smile a lot, you are kind, and when you get in trouble at school it is because you are being social with your friends - just like him. He would have loved to know you, and you would have been a reason he would have come to Arizona. He would have come to cheer you on in his favorite sport, baseball. He would have spent hours kicking a soccer ball around with you.
You are lucky to have many fine relatives in your life - but I am so sad today that one of the finest is just a memory. That memory comes alive not just on a day like today when it is the anniversary of his death, but in your personality I see it often.
Keep being kind, keep loving your friends, keep smiling. You are your own person - and sorry if sometimes we see and remember another.
|The three of us - Jimmy, myself, Ron|
