The email I drafted and never sent to Jimmy last November 4th, as we were waiting to hear from him, still sits in my Drafts folder, unedited since 8pm 11/4/16. I still don’t have the heart to delete it, nor can I remove Jimmy from my Favorites list on my cell phone. It’s only been a year, but by god it has been a year.
If you would like to do something in Jimmy’s memory today, which would warm my heart and my family's hearts to the core, dedicate a toast to him tonight. Say his name out loud. Be kind. If you want to take it a step further take a photo of it, tag #forjimmy and share it.
