May James rest in peace. I knew James for about twenty or
so years. He was a great neighbor and friend. We used to sit out front of his house under a tree and just talk for hours.
James you will be sorely missed. May God wrap you in his arms and let you rest in peace. Bye bye my friend and neighbor.
