June 16, 1945  -  December 24, 2014


What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose,  for all that we love deeply becomes part of us.

Jimmie Abesilla

Father, Husband, Teacher, & Friend

Jimmie Abesilla was born on June 16, 1945 in Los Angeles, Ca.  He wore several hats throughout his life.  He served as commander for the Navy.  He was a teacher in math and science to several schools throughout Southern California. Yet his most notable of hats was that he was a family man.  He leaves behind his wife Estella, three daughters Michelle, Natalie, and Jamee, his stepson Ivan, stepdaughter Elizabeth, and two grandchildren Jacob and Joviana.


Jimmie was taken to the hospital due to shortness of breath and it was found there that he had been suffering from internal bleeding due to a large ulcer in his upper intestine.  He was brought home after 10 days of being in the hospital and passed peacefully in the comfort of his home on December 24.

Letter To Friends & Family

Love, Jamee Abesilla

Dearest Family and Friends,


I’m writing this letter with a heavy heart.  I never imagined at the beginning of this year that it would end with me having to see my dad leave this earth.  His last 10 days were the hardest challenges I have ever faced in my life thus far.  I can honestly say that it was the support and love and prayers from each one of you that had helped me to stay strong and to stand by his side as a pillar to prepare him for what was to be his final sacrament.  I thank God everyday that I was given the opportunity to be next to him during that time.  To give him the support that he needed.  To witness him fulfill the entirety of his life.  It was a privilege I will be forever grateful for.


The last family gathering my sisters and I had with our dad will forever stay with me.  It was in November.  We got word that dad was not eating and his doctors had yet still to figure out why.  I had brought some chicken to BBQ and asked Natalie to come outside to help me build the fire because it was a task I didn't want to bother my dad with.  After two attempts of unsuccessfully lighting the coals my dad came out to check on us.  He started explaining what was needed to light them; gathering little pieces of wood around his yard and some dry weeds.  Of course this worked.  He was dad after all.  The challenge of lighting that fire with Natalie was such a simple task for him and it encompassed every feeling of the superman that we knew our father to be.


We spoke to him often both when he was awake and sedated in the hospital reminding him constantly of the love, support, and prayers from all of you. Thank you so much for being there at his time of need.



Light, love, and blessings always,




“Life is eternal; and love is immortal; and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.”

Eternal Light


Those we love must someday pass beyond our present sight.

Must leave us and the world we know without their radiant light.

But we know that like a candle their lovely light will surely shine to brighten up another place more perfect... more divine. And in the realm of Heaven where they shine so warm and bright. Our loved ones live forevermore in God’s eternal light.

The rays of light filtered through

The sentinels of trees this morning.

I sat in the garden and contemplated.

The serenity and beauty

Of my feelings and surroundings

Completely captivated me.


I thought of you.


I discovered you tucked away

In the shadows of the trees.

Then, rediscovered you

In the smiles of the flowers


As the sun penetrated their petals

In the rhythm of the leaves

Falling in the garden

In the freedom of the birds

As they fly searching as you do.


I’m very happy to have found you,

Now you will never leave me

For I will always find you in the beauty of life.

--Walter Rinder

Finding You in Beauty

Blessings, Prayers, and Memories

The song is ended but the melody lingers on...
