    To the family and friends of James please accept my deepest condolences. Very soon the loved ones we have lost in death will hear Jesus Christ voice and wake up from the sleep of death John 5:28,29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth under Jesus Christ Kingdom rule that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord's Prayer no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-4 jw.org.

    A very good friend, you gave me good pointers on helping to improve my Community Watch program, I apologize but no one told me about your passing for that I am deeply saddened, you will be missed. I am going to miss the nights patrolling with you keep our communities safe, yet there is no word on how you saved communities from drugs, gangs & crime. I won't let you be forgotten here. From one Community leader to another rest well you have earned it.
