Yesterday Jim Short passed away.
He was stricken with ALS very recently.
Although we only visited Jim and Vicki at their home near Bracebridge, Ontario once, he was and shall remain one of my favorite people in the world.
I always found his presence very comforting, and hearing him say “Hey Robbie” would go a long way towards bringing me back to earth from wherever my thoughts had been driving me to.
He learned of Sara very early on, and told me then that I should be with a southern belle.
The sole visit to Jim and Vicki’s home was for Jim to meet Sara.
We were instructed that no tears were allowed, as they would cause Jim to gag.
Tears are allowed now.
