Gwen’s Jimmy died last night. He drove his bike down the church driveway and didn’t stop. Some city boy had the hammer down, was trying to make an appointment and hit him.
He died right there, the fire team couldn’t help him at all and Munro, tears in her eyes, pronounced him dead.
The cops came over, didn’t charge the guy because Jimmy didn’t stop and he didn’t have much chance of seeing him and braking (even if he wasn’t speeding). Guy never had a chance.
Gene had to come and pull his car out with this truck. The guy skidded into the ditch – the bike on his bumper. Jimmy wound up in the other ditch. Said he didn’t want the car anymore – asked Gene to take it to the dump.
Can’t say Gene wants to do that but he will – he’s a good man.
Breaks our hearts – Jimmy was the best friend of Gene’s boy and they played together all the time.
Funeral is Tuesday. I hope that new minister is sober.
