Jimmy Buffett, the man behind the classic “Margaritaville,” succumbed to Merkel cell carcinoma earlier this month.
He leaves behind his wife Jane and their children Savannah, Sarah Delaney, and Cameron.
His music and his spirit have touched countless lives, and he will be sorely missed.
Tributes have been pouring in from all corners.
Celebrities like Andy Cohen and Elton John, among others, have also honored the “It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere” artist.
The love and respect for Jimmy Buffett extend far and wide, transcending the boundaries of the music industry.
And let’s not forget his die-hard fans, the Parrotheads!
They celebrated Jimmy’s life with a vibrant parade through the Florida Keys, where he first launched his career and lived for many years.
The parade was a fitting tribute to a man who had given them so much joy through his music.
Jane Slagsvol, Jimmy’s wife of 45 years, also shared a powerful statement.“Growing old is not for sissies,” she quoted her late husband, acknowledging the challenges they faced in recent years.
She expressed immense gratitude for the love and support they received, saying, “Everywhere we went, we were surrounded by love.”
Jane thanked the fans for creating “the world’s most joyful community,” emphasizing how their love fueled Jimmy’s performances.
Wrapping up her tribute, Jane referred to Jimmy’s song “Bubbles Up,” saying, “He sings, ‘Just know that you are loved, there is light up above, and the joy is always enough. Bubbles up.’ Jimmy knew he was loved. Right until the end, he looked for the light. Thank you for giving joy to him and me.”
It’s a poignant reminder that even in the face of adversity, love and joy can sustain us.
And for Jimmy Buffett, that love and joy bubbled up, right to the very end.
