Little did I know that on 26 May of last year that this shot would be the last picture I would ever take of my son. We were on a camping trip in the Florida Everglades, so many awesome memories. He went to be with his Creator on 17 July after losing the battle with his demons. I challenge everyone on this forum to tell someone today, that has added value to your life, that you love them. Jimmy would have been 26 today.


The Day You Were Born

In Loving Memory Of My Only Child
James (Jimmy) Louis Rhodes, III
24 Jan 1989 - 17 July 2014

The Day You Were Born

You changed my life the day you were born
I stood in awe as your tiny hand gripped my finger
I stood in fear at the thought you were mine to care
You became my life the day you were born

The day you turned over, the day you crawled,
The day you walked, the day you called me daddy-o
You changed my world the day you were born

Your first birthday, your first Christmas
Your first trip to daycare, your first day riding the bus
I was so happy the day you were born

A baseball hit, a fish caught, a basketball dribbled
Making cookies with mom, singing a song
I was so proud the day you were born

Days at the beach, nights at the concerts
So many friends, so many cheerful times
I was so blessed the day you were born

Seeing the happiness of that first love
The joy of getting your first car
The night you walked in your cap and gown
I was so pleased the day you were born

Seeing you grow up, seeing you become a man,
Wishing the best for you, hoping you find your way
I was completed the day you were born

Dad

heartbreaking.

I hope you and your son's loved ones can continue healing.
