My Brother, My Hero

Jim was my big brother, best brother a girl could ever wish for. Jim was truly my hero.







All I have left are the wonderful memories growing up with Jimmy. I miss you everyday and nothing will ever fill the hole in my heart since you were taken from us. I am so proud of you and love you so much.
