The cutest gif of him ever
" He was by far the most amazing person I have ever met . I told him I loved him everyday. He demanded your love and was never afraid to return it . I have walked side by side with Jimmy , everyday , for the last 18 years of my life. I have no memories before Jimmy , and will be very difficult to follow without him here . Still does not seem real. He was my best friend , songwriting partner , band mate , confidant , and most importantly , he was my brother. A crazy thing about Jimmy was that everyday was a crazy story . We shared our favorite stories about him in the last two weeks and never repeat any . This guy was magical . The term of art from his soul was unlike anything the world has ever seen. Unless you spend a day with Jimmy , or 18 years , it is impossible to explain , so I will not try. He inspired people in different ways . It was not just a drummer , he honestly did not care much for the technical side of the battery , because he could play whatever he wanted . He devoted all creating beautiful songs , original beats and hoped touching people with his art and mind . He said for all of us for years , including his parents , that he knew two things in life : I wanted to be a rock star and he would not live beyond 30 years of age. He was right on both counts . But I know Jimmy , and if he knew how much pain this would cause for those he left behind , he would have done anything to get a little more . Jimmy gave so much and in the end , was his time to go . All the reasons for wanting him to stay are selfish and I know he is in a better place than this . In a way , I’m glad my friend is at peace . He went to the other side first and I can not wait to meet him again . I have so much to say , but I can not find the words so I will wait until time permits I have a way to express myself . "
