Jim Berdine was an incredible friend of mine. He always said that if he were not gay, he and I would happily be in a relationship. Haha. We were soul mates regardless. Jim tragically passed away August 15, 2013. That day is one that I will never forget. The details are morbid and my sister and I were the first to report his death. If you know what it’s like to lose someone so close to you, you know the pain that I went through and am still going through. I know many of you are wondering what happened to Jim. Humans are curious by nature. It’s absolutely okay to want to know. I will explain in greater detail of our platonic love affair one day. Just not today. Groundhog Day was Jim’s birthday. Today, about 7 friends of his including myself will be celebrating his life in what my sister and her husband call The Berdine Theater of their home. We will have lots of food that Jim loved, and we will play a game called Dirty Jenga that Jim loved to play. I love that man and think about him every single day. Did you lose someone close to you? Feel free to talk about the person in the comments below.
Until we talk again…sooner between posts, I promise! Have a beautiful day.
