They say that the friends you make in college are the friends you have for life. At this moment those words couldn't ring more true. Although we have lost our amazing friend Jimmy, his jounrey and story will forever live in our heart's. His love and passion for life was infectious and truly inspiring. He was an uplifitng soul who lived life to the absolute fullest while inspiring many people along his journey. 

As many of you may know by now, our friend Jimmy Hart passed away suddenly in Cambodia while backpacking with his great friend Derek. The Hart family wants to express their sincere gratitude for everything that was said about Jimmy and everything that was done for the family thus far. 

"Jimmy was living his dream. He was exploring new countries, visiting historic temples, meeting wonderful people, and helping those in need in countries all around the world. Each country brought new areas to explore, each river and stream brought new places to cool off and each hill brought new scenic views to admire and reflect upon. As Jimmy planned this trip so precisely and everything was going extremely well, no one could have expected this sad outcome." - Ray Miller (Father of Derek who accompanied Jim on his trip)

With the shock of such an event comes the reality that faces the Hart family at this time. The efforts in getting Jimmy back to the states and to his family have been challenging to say the least but the costs associated with everything that has taken place and has yet to be accomplished is going to be significant. As a result, we are hoping to fund enough money for the Harts during this trying time and defray some of the mounting costs in returning Jimmy to his family, his home, and to his final resting place. 

Jimmy was very passionate about writing and seeing the truth in life. His blog is so inspirtational and portrays his wonderful life every step of the way. http://ifiweregoing.com/

Please help us get Jimmy back home. Your donation means everything. Thank you all so much! 

"I promise I shall never give up, & that I'll die yelling & laughing."
