My Goodman

Couldn't let this day slip away without acknowledging that it's been six years since we lost Jimmy.

He was a wonderful father and husband. My very best friend and we all miss him every minute of the day.

What I've missed most about him today was his boundless sense of good humor. I've needed a good laugh and going through the many wonderful photos I have of him was tonic. Nobody made me laugh the way Jimmy did.

  1. Those pictures are a hoot. So glad to see your Jimmy dancing with Baton Bob - who used to be a St. Louis fixture, before our unappreciative and uptight citizenry allowed him to slip away to Atlanta.

  3. I called him that because I felt like I got the last Good Man on earth.

                                This is what I want to do next. I just love what Hazel has done with her treasured cloth, her love and time...

Play it again Sam.
