In a heartfelt reflection penned for the Keys Citizen, Lucy “LuLu” Buffett, the sister of legendary musician Jimmy Buffett, has shared poignant insights into the final moments of her older brother’s life.

Jimmy Buffett, known for his iconic songs celebrating beach life and good times, left a parting message that echoed the very essence of his music.

LuLu begins her touching tribute by revealing the last words Jimmy, affectionately nicknamed “Bubba,” spoke to her during a poignant goodbye visit. While the family has not disclosed if he shared more with others afterwards, it’s evident that he took the opportunity to bid farewell to those close to him.

In her reflection, LuLu disclosed:

“We had a beautiful goodbye visit earlier in the week. He had my grandfather’s twinkle in his eye to the end and he was very clear that the music, the party and the good life was to continue with his robust optimism in tow.”

Jimmy had been more than just a music legend; he was an older brother and a protector to LuLu and Laurie (“LaLa”). She fondly recalls feeling safe in his presence, thanks to the comforting presence of her big brother.

LuLu Buffett’s Tribute to Her Brother Jimmy

In her article, LuLu mourns her brother’s passing but also celebrates a life well-lived. She shares personal insights into their upbringing and how Jimmy’s strong work ethic played a crucial role in his successful career, all while keeping family at the center of his life.

Reflecting on his battle with skin cancer, LuLu reveals that Jimmy faced it with remarkable resilience. Despite the highs and lows of treatment, he downplayed the severity of his illness. She writes:

“He was the best person I know that could ‘breathe in, breathe out and move on’ after hard news.”

As Jimmy’s health declined, the family knew that a miracle would be needed to save him. Ultimately, they found their miracle in the four precious years they spent with him after his diagnosis.

LuLu concludes her heartfelt tribute with a vivid image of her brother’s spirit, saying, “I know that he is flying high above Mother Ocean, soaring up to the Pleiades, and was gliding over Duval Street yesterday,” referring to the New Orleans-style parade held in Key West in honor of Jimmy.

Jimmy passed away at the age of 76 on September 1, leaving behind a legacy of music and a profound reminder to embrace the joy in life.
