Freebird now

Colin, Jimmy and Jake
Jimmy passed away peacefully around noon yesterday here at home.

We were all here with him and he will remain the largest part of my heart forever.

This was taken the day before Jake and Missy's wedding. He was so happy to have made it there well enough to enjoy the weekend. We all were.

...and when their lives are keen
he throws the world a kiss
and slings his wheel upon
his back and off he goes

but we can hear him still
if now our sun is gone
reminding with his bell
to reappear a moon [ee Cummings]

my heart is heavy with sadness of Jim's passing...just know he is still with you, alive in your heart and memories...
Namaste

Your title made me think of one of my favorite Dillard's tracks, "I'll Fly Away". You can hear the opening here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_bKQvy5DqQ. I need to dig out the album and listen to the whole track...

May love surround you and hold you up each day. I am so very sorry. From what you have shared of your life, Jim was clearly a very "good man" indeed.
