Jon Jimmie would have graduated with his class at Immokalee High School on May 25, but he passed away in February. This letter from his mother Elsa Zamora, on behalf of the entire family, including father Jonnie Jimmie and their son and daughters, is a loving tribute to him. Jon would have turned 19 on June 15.
To my son Jon,
Congratulations, you finally graduated. Son, I am so proud of you. Having you here with us for 18 years was a blessing from God. Although we miss your smile, along with your laughter and hugs, you left us with beautiful memories. These photos remind us of how handsome you looked, but you were also a gentleman with a kind heart who often helped others. Fishing and basketball may be your sports, but I was told that every time we hear thunder it is you playing basketball.
Happy Birthday my little Native son Jon Jimmie. We love you and miss you.
