 “God gives each person their own unique song. It’s one that will play their entire life long. As I remember, Jim, I hear his laughter, I visualize his big smile. He always told me that if he ever hit the lottery, he was going to give half. Jim is my best friend. He never once got mad at me. We always laughed at each other no matter what we said. I will miss the long talks on the phone, and the short visits, and I will truly miss you. So, as I say fair well my brother, I will remember your laughter as my song forever in my heart. I love you”.
