James was my friend! He was a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather,nephew and cousin. In Second, he was a deacon, trustee, Sunday School worker, money counter, Lord's Supper preparer, giver, helper and friend. In his personal life, he was an educator and most importantly, he was a child of GOD. I am sure I left something out, but this is my memories of James.

He now is in Heaven praising GOD and probably signed up as a tourguide in Heaven.

My prayers are to Bette and the family in this time of sorrow and my you be blessed and comforted.

I will never forget James and what he has meant to my life as an inspirator.
