My brother Jamie was a wonderful person. He usually was always thinking of others. He will be missed sorely. I can imagine another person was so closer to me and understood me except MOM. he was so near and dear to so many people. He had such a wonder smile. and willingness to work hard. I know he is relaxing up in heaven waiting for his wife and family to be with him. while he talks to our half brother Howie and Mom and aunts and Brenda. May he enjoy this time with God will he waits for us.
love you Jamie. Missing you and DONT WORRY about ME.
