Jim lived His life dreaming of what He wanted to achieve. He envisioned a gift from His childhood days. He kept it in His heart, He has never spoken of it. He knew the hills were steep. Yet He vowed some day He would climb it. The day would come when he found prosperity in skills and He fought for it. Climbing to reach the top and He made it. When time seem dark and dreary, He prayed the sun would shine and brighten His days. In His life He knew He could make it. He would have never reached the top if He had doubts about it. The journey seemed rough. He had the potential and the will to fight it. He trusted in God and Him himself. He brighten His days with love and friendship. Success was His and He achieved it. The quest of His life was in music and in songs. His happiness was in music and songs when He made it. The hill He climbed was worth it. The world He left behind with melodies of music and songs. I found Happiness in every song He sings. My days and nights gave me the pleasures to listen to His intimate voice and found love in it. His childhood days He kept in His heart. Now He is in the realms of Heaven where His reward is the greatest gift no earthly reward to compare with. Brilliant, Illustrious, Intimate and Handsome was He. From a moth to a flame, He is more than a flame. He is the one that matters most to me and in true love I have found it. A voice so sweet,so deep the good Lord knows He was destined to make it.
I LOVE YOU JIM REEVES GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

FIFTY YEARS OF ETERNAL PEACE
FIFTY YEARS OF ETERNAL REST
May the gentle breeze that blows about Him
With trees that still surrounds Him
Will always be forever green
May flowers that bloom above His feet
Gives off the sweet fragrance while He sleeps
Birds in unison chirp their songs in trees from above
You hear the voice of God within the russels of the leaves He lost
LOVE YOU JIM REEVES
