I have lost my best friend and soulmate; my gentle, brilliant and loving husband, James Lee Radcliffe,
also known as JimmyLee of the JimmyLee and Bambi Show on CNIRadio.com.

I am so brokenhearted I can hardly breath or think or anything. I will be posting more as time goes on. I just can’t do so right now.

As I say, when I am able, I will post more about Jim as I did for my Daddy when he passed away. The difference this time is that Jim was right there to be physically, emotionally and spiritually supportive when Daddy passed away and helped me get through it all. He had intimate knowledge what I was going through when Daddy passed away, because he knew what it was to lose a beloved parent, his Mom, Marie (Henry) Radcliffe back in 1984, a very unique woman who was such a positive influence and encouraged him in his thirst for learning and exploring life to become the phenomenal person that Jim became. I never had the pleasure of meeting Mom/Marie because she passed away two years before we met, but Jim was so awesome at being a storyteller, I really felt like I knew her.
