Game over, man; game over.

I bought myself Wawa coffee this morning.

It’s a Sunday and I bought myself Wawa coffee.

Most of you will see no real significance to those two statements, but they mean everything to me.

For years, Jamey had a routine of buying me Wawa on the weekends.

I never asked him to.                             He just did it.                       Because that was Jamey.

After he was first diagnosed those lucky number seven years ago, he confided in my neighbor Kelly

one of his biggest fears about getting sick: he’d be unable to buy me coffee in the mornings.

Luckily, he lived to buy me enough coffee to raise the dead from their graves.

Jamey will never have a chance to buy me Wawa coffee again.  And that’s ok.

Like I said, I bought myself Wawa coffee this morning.

Jamey passed away in a spectacularly brilliant manner at about 2:40 this morning.

Maybe he’s off buying his mom, Noreen and his dad, Stan some Wawa coffee.

  2. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

    You did a good job taking care of him!

    I do white dove releases for funerals ( pure white homing pigeons, actually. Don’t worry, they always beat me home!)

    The next time I release them for exercise and training, I will have you and your family in my prayers.

    God Bless you and my sincere condolences
    on your loss.

  5. I spent most of yesterday in prayer for Jamey and for all of you. Not being a very religious person this was pretty unusual for me. Yesterday and today are spectacularly beautiful here in Oregon and I repeatedly found myself looking out over the landscape and praying to the saints. Before I knew it I was including Aunt Noreen, Uncle Buck, my mom and dad, all the aunts and uncles in my prayers to the saints. I was praying for them to meet Jamey with open arms. These were the people in my life who were saints and in my mind Jamey now gets to be one too. Jamey is at peace; he won the game. But the rest of us lost. I’m raising my cup of coffee (unfortunately not Wawa) in his honor this morning. Peace to you and to all of my cousins.

    Kim
    I am so sorry for your loss though I realize there is relief that any suffering is over and Jamey is in a good place.
    I have not seen Jamey for many years but will always remember that smile and the fun on Green Avenue playing kick the can.

    Sending love and prayers.

  12. You are an incredible woman Kim,
    ‘I am sorry’ doesn’t seem adequate but I’m left too humbled and speechless. You are loved by so many, I hope you can find comfort in the arms and hearts of all those who surround you.

    Wishing you peace,
