You were a beautiful baby and a beautiful adult. You were never far from our thoughts. We prayed everyday that life would be good to you. To your beautiful son and best friend Markus, you were "Dad". To us you were "Little Jim" and always will be. Even though we did not get to see you very often, we accompanied you on your final journey to Heaven. We didn't want you to be alone. We know you are not alone now.

Going to poughkeepsie for the All stars metal festival show. Markus, myself and friends stayed in dover plains and met up with markuses father james during our trip. Meeting him for the first time, friendly man and very generous. Made sure we had a place to stay before we drove 6 hours up north. Respect for the man as my good friends father. Gone too soon.

Jimmy....where to begin. We grew up together as brother and sister, not like cousins. We had a lot of great times growing up. Spending countless days at grandmas house in the pool to hanging out at the town pool. The many hikes down the tracks to the river where we all would swim, have fires and camp. Growing up in a place where we all made our own fun because there was nothing much for us to do. Playing hide and seek in the corn fields and teaching me how to fish. We had so many memorable vacations to NJ with the family. Remember the time we drove down in the box truck to bring grandmas furniture to the house in Toms River...hmm what an adventure that was😁
You thought me how to ride a dirt bike and even let me take yours to ride because I wanted to be just like you. I idolized you growing up and can remember being jealous at times when you were out with your friends and I wasn’t aloud because I was younger. I remember the time we were playing golf in grandmas front yard and you whipped the golf ball bent over between your legs and it hit me smack dab in the middle of my forehead leaving an egg size bump. How I cried and then how we laughed. Your smile was always so full as your heart was too. I am sorry we faded apart over the years and sorry that we lost touch. Just know that you were very loved as much now as you were then. You will be missed by so many.
To your son Markus and his mom Sandy.... as you know him was a good man. We all struggle with a dark side and some of us have a harder time getting out of it. Markus... your dad loved you more than words could describe and I am truly sorry for your loss. Sandi, jimmy always had a love for you from day one and I am truly sorry for your loss as well. I just want to say that you too are loved by many as well and I can not express how truly sad I am for you and our family.
Love always

So many good times in the box truck. Of course we were all saints back then. 😇 I wish we had cell phones then so we could have captured more memories.

Jim was always laughing and always trying to find the next fun thing to do. Your laughter was infectious. Some quick memories...The most important memory I have is our son Markus. He looks like you, he acts like you, and he loves to laugh like you. He's amazing. We are so lucky. Other memories... you lost control of your motorcycle, flew over the handlebars and broke her collarbone. You had to sleep in the recliner for weeks. I remember a disagreement about something, not sure what, and you threw my photo album out the apartment window in the pouring rain. Ruined some of my pictures but not all and damaged album. I still have this album, warped and with ruined water pictures still in it. I guess there was a reason I kept that all these years. So many memories camping at State land, parties, hanging out with friends and trips to NYC. We had so much fun gambling, snorkeling, and biking in the Bahamas and Mexico. Trips to your Grandmothers house in Toms River, NJ and crab fishing. it was the first time I ever heard the awful sound of cooking crabs. I had to go outside it sounded so terrible. Too many memories to add and my heart is broken that your gone. We will love and miss you every day. Rest in peace my friend.
