I had the opportunity to meet James through my previous career. James - I am unbelievably sorry for what happened to you! My heart dropped the moment I saw your photo on the news. It had been 10 years since I last interacted with you. But please know - our conversation changed my life. I pray each night that your soul can now find peace. Thank you for what you taught me! I wish I knew where you were buried. I would love to bring flowers. May you rest in peace!

So grateful to have shared 12+ years of life's journey with James. "Our music" won't be the same without him. Fly high and free until we meet again, my forever friend. Love from The Fake Redhead with the 3-door car... xo
