Jim is so very missed

Thank you all for writing and thank you Julie for your committment to this website. It is true that we still have nothing to report to you but we do appreciate that you continue to check the website. When that day comes, this will be one of the first places where we will post. It will seem like a victory I suppose, but it will also be a hollow one. A conviction will seem like a hollow victory, too. is all very much what we want.

I miss Jim so much every day. I can't believe this has happened and I can't seem to get my mind around it either. Kiss your kids and hold them tight everyday of their lives.

This weekend we will begin the true labor part of Jim's Memorial Garden. A small pond and waterfall should take shape, the current arbor will be moved and planting will begin. I will take pictures as the garden progresses and will eventually have those to share.

Please consider making a garden stepping stone for Jim's garden. It will make for a beautiful memorial to a beautiful son, brother, cousin, grandson, nephew, uncle and friend. A constant sweet reminder that we all loved him and he once was upon this earth sharing his love with us.

Jim you are in our hearts forever. Love, MOM

Jim's Memorial Garden...

My mom is creating a Jim memorial garden at her house and has some wonderful plans for it. She has received so many beautiful plants, and trees as memorial tributes that the garden is going to be huge. She is asking that anyone who is interested create a garden stepping stone in Jim's memory to be used in the garden. You can buy the kits and Michael's or JoAnn's, or just use cement to create your own. There are various different kits that come in different shapes, etc. and they are easy to use. My mom plans to create one using some shells from the beach as well as one with some of the small trinket like things we found in his apartment. You can send them to her or she can pick them up if they are local. If anyone has any questions, just let us know.

Nothing new to report on the case...
