    I will miss James dearly. He was like a brother to me. Even when we were apart for extended periods of time when I’d see him again it was like we were never apart. I know he was not ready to leave this world. He would never leave his wife, kids and grandkids behind. I’m thinking he was angry and refused to go but once committed he willingly done what he was suppose to die. I have may fond memories of James to remember him by, some of them funny, some sad, some crazy, some down right scary !!! Most of them are of how good a person he was, how quick he was to give a helping hand or a kind word. I can only hope that one day we will meet again and enjoy each other’s company once again. God bless you James.
