    Jimmy, you were Loved and raised by your brothers, Donald & Douglas Dixon, who couldn’t make it there to your funeral to say bye. Donald Dixon loved and cared for you just as much as I did, but I had more fun doing it. I was a Drill Instructor at Parris Island. When you was a recruit, I will never forget the first time I walked into your squad bay. I hollered, “Recruit Dixon, get your butt here!” Man, you were scared to death until I took you outside and gave you a soda pop and a candy bar. Lol. Even though we three took different paths, growing and hanging out was good times. We all cherish still today. We both Love you, we weren’t always there, and miles kept us apart, but we Love You. Donald couldn’t make it, Bro. He is taking care of Mom. It is hard on him. We will meet you at the golden gate, and you will be there saying, “Come abroad, Bro.” No amount of miles or money can keep us apart then. Love Donald and Douglas Dixon. YOUR BROTHERS!!!
