I've been pondering the circle of life this week, as I've lost my dear Uncle Jimmy to a rare, horrible lung disease. He was only 60 and I'm really sad today as they have the funeral without me there. He was such a fun-loving good 'ole boy who loved his family and especially his dogs! My little boy adored him when we went to visit him this spring, wanting to be like Uncle Jimmy and wear cowboy boots and hat. He definitely reminded me of those Old Western heroes as I was growing up. I'm going to miss you, but I do hope you having a heck of a time up there with Pa and Ike!
