Today we honor our country, our independence, our freedom and most importantly the men and women who dedicate their lives to give us the life we are able to lead.
I can't help but think of Jimmy today and reflect on the life he lead. He is my ideal American. From the day I met him, he dedicated his life to defending our country, our freedom, our ordinary. And he continued to do so until God called him home.
Not a day goes by I don't think of him or his family.
Jimmy, thank you for dedicating your life to our country.
Thank you for living your life as a model for the rest of us.
Today, as we celebrate our country, I think of you. I go to the fridge carrying Jack and we point to your picture and practice your name. Because even though you're not here in person you will always be here in spirit and I will make certain that not only B and I carry on your light but that Jackson does as well.
If you'd like to know more about our beloved friend Jim go here and here.
