I have been really close to the Mcguire family since I was about 12 years old. You can say I sort of became the son they never asked for. that didn’t bother me as I turned to jimmy and Karen for everything since I basically never left their house. Jimmy was a great man, and a blessing to all he touched. He was so proud of his whole family. I don’t think there was ever a time I would see jimmy without a smile on his face. Jimmy was always trying to educate us, one specific memory that is fresh in my head is when James helped mike get his first car. I think it was an Acura and we couldn’t figure out how to start a standard. Jimmy said “if you can start it you can take it for a ride” after about an hour, mike and I thought the car was broken or had a dead battery. Jimmy stood there laughing at us because we couldn’t figure out how to start the car. Jimmy kicked us out of the front seat, jumped in and started the car in a second and drove off.. he went around the block and we laughed together when he came back. He explained to us about the clutch and how it’s an important part of a standard vehicle. I am thankful for each and every lesson jimmy has passed on to help educate me. There has been hundreds if not thousands of times jimmy would drop everything for someone he cared about. Weather it be just to lend an ear or to give us a ride jimmy was always there. James will be missed dearly and I know that he is in a better place. We love you Jimmy and you will be in our thoughts and hearts each and everyday. I hope that you are looking down and we all make you proud. Love you.
