Sad day 50 years ago

I remember this day 50 years ago like it was yesterday. When Jim and Dean were reported missing, the 2-day wait was unbearable. I kept in constant touch with a friend in Nashville whose husband was a disc jockey and helping in the search. Finally the sad news came that they were found.
Jim was buried on my son Jimmie's 7th birthday. Jimmie was named after Jim and adored him (the feeling was mutual). Jimmie said "This is the saddest birthday of my life".
We still miss you, Jim but you left a wonderful legacy of beautiful songs so you will never be forgotten.
