29 years ago

Last week  on the 6th my younger brother Jimmy would have been 50 years old !!! Here he is at 16 Wow so "70's" . Today he is in my thoughts as he is  a little more then most, every year at this time. He was killed 29 years ago today  in a car accident and I still miss him..... I just wanted to take the time today to remember. Ya even in the 70's I guess he was kind of cute. I never thought so then, but in looking back I can see it...just a tiny  bit  and oh that horrible hair style, the look  all the boys  his age are wearing again... YUK!!!!

Julie your brother was really cute. I am sure you miss him very much.
My husband had the same hair style when I met him and I thought he was the cutest boy ever!

I love your banner - so sweet.

My heart is with you. I lost my brother almost 20 years ago. Thank you for allowing us to remember Jimmy with you as well as reminding us of all the others who we're missing who are special to us.
