Jimmy, Where are you?

Jim StevensI need to interrupt the flow of links with a personal tribute to a friend. A sad thing happened awhile back in my neighborhood. I had a friend --Jim Stevens, he was ran over by a truck, someone that knew him was driving, he died at the scene.

This link is to a band page. I know the two guys in the middle. The big guy is Jesse, the one with dreadlocks is Abdulah. Jesse is a great guy, a fantastic musician, and he teaches music to children. I have nothing good to say about Abdulah so I'll just shut up.

~~I was bartending at Jim's favorite bar at the time this happened. The bar where I used to work has live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Shortly after Jim was killed, we had a wake for Jim at the bar.

Jesse was sitting at his keyboard after Jim's funeral service, I was working, we were all upset. I had known Jim for 13 years. --Something incredible happened. Jesse writes music, has some pretty good tunes out, and he just started playing. He started singing, and this wonderful melody came out. It came from his heart, deep in his soul. I still cry every time I hear the song.

The song is at the link above Jim's picture. I'd appreciate it if you'd listen to it.

It's called Jimmy, Where are you?

If you'd like to read the article about Jim's death, and see the inside of the bar where I worked, click the link below. I was upset by the first newspaper article that described Jim as "a Shoreline Man." I emailed the Seattle PI and told them that "That Shoreline Man" has a name, and a lot of people care about him. I just happened to mention we were having a wake the next day.

The newspaper showed up at his wake, took pictures and did a great article. It was a comfort to his wife, and made me feel like they cared our friend died.

Here's the article in the Seattle PI: Man run over by truck is remembered as generous, gregarious

Please listen to the song --in Jim's honor. And Jesse, if you ever see this post, THANK YOU for writing the song.

~~And Thanks to Everyone, for reading this post.

I may want to find this link later (hopefully, the man that ran him over is charged with vehicular manslaughter)

Jimmy, Where are you? - Friday, August 26, 2005 - links to this post

4:39 AM

Don't Weep for Me

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sun on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awake in morning's hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there;
I did not die.

- Mary Frye



I am sorry for your loss Cyndy...
but try to remember, he is still with you..

hugs
