I am SO very thankful for you. That was such a beautiful service. You made the world a better place. I'm upset I won't get to see you for awhile, but when I do it's gonna be the greatest day. You got the best early Christmas present of us all. Jesus couldn't wait for you any longer. I keep thinking about church camp last summer & how it was all about heaven. We got to see what we thought heaven was like, but you are so lucky to finally see what it's really like! You were a light to everyone you came across. Your smile was contagious, as well as your laugh too. You could make anyone laugh or smile, no matter the circumstance. Your life was filled with fun & I know you lived it to the fullest. I don't remember ever seeing you not dancing or not smiling. I remember us playing as little kids. I remember you getting on the table & dancing at camp. I remember that Wednesday night at church when I turned 13 how I made your grade boys sing to me just because I wanted to say that THE Jim Cheek sang to me. You sat right in front of me & smiled and sang along with the rest of your grade. I remember this summer at camp seeing you dancing during worship in the mess hall & my girls and I kept giggling about it & you ended up pointing at us. There's so many memories that I'll forever cherish, and your smile is the biggest. I looked up to you, I really did. You inspired me to be close to my sister like you were with yours. You have inspired me to always have a smile on my face. You were such a great person with a kind heart. You will NEVER ever be forgotten. You are a legend. You are loved. HHYG will always remember you & the times we had with you. You did such great things for so many. Jim, I wish I could've said goodbye but I know that that's not the right word because one day I'll be saying "hello" to you in heaven. I am so jealous of you & can't wait to be up there with you. I know you're watching over us all & dancing with Jesus right now.
WE ARE FAMILY, AND FAMILY STICKS TOGETHER! "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love."
- I Corinthians 16: 13-14
You did everything with love.
I love you, Jim. 💙
