wow, 4th post today...

December was a rough month. It started out that way and it ended even worse. On 12.29, my husband's Uncle Jimmy was found passed away in his home. He was only 53. It was the strangest day because I was on call for my Volunteer program and it was quiet. I received a call around 2pm from my director asking where am I and have I heard the news. HUH? I had no idea what she was referring to. Then she asks me how old my FIL is. That freaked me out. Apparently dispatch received a call about Uncle Jimmy and my FIL is the one who found him and told the police NOT to call me so I didn't have to see the scene. But before I knew all that, I thought something happened to my FIL so I literally threw my kids in the car and raced to my in-laws house. I left them in the car and ran into the house yelling for my MIL since her car was there. I wasn't getting an answer and was getting scared. Then she came from outside... looked at me and started crying. All this time I still thought it was my FIL... then she says it is Jimmy. So I decided to dedicate this post to Jimmy. Kit used is The Four Seasons: Autumn by Alessandra Designs @ Digitals.

____________________________________________
Jimmy - a man of many faces. The big bad gruff with attitude and dirty jokes... the sweet softy who had my boys pictures in frames...the one who gave me a hug on my wedding day... the silly one who thought we wanted a dog the size of a horse...the generous one who gave cash instead of gifts because he didn't want to shop...the one who refused help...the one who died alone. Jimmy, thank you for all you have given this family. You will be missed and will ALWAYS be remembered.

Very sweet tribute. It is a wonderful thing this scrapbooking. How else could we put such stories, pictures, and moments together, so that others can share our lives, but even for a moment. Love and hugs to your family from mine.

Although from different places, but this perception is consistent, which is relatively rare point!

Although we have differences in culture, but do not want is that this view is the same and I like that!
