I have to say at the moment I am in shock. I find it hard to believe that James has passed away. He lived across the street from me for about a year and he was such a nice guy. I enjoyed seeing him work to keep his flowers looking good. May God be with all of you who love him.

Jeff, I know you will miss your visits and I'm sorry. May God be with you! He loved you dearly.

I love and miss you Daddy, so so much. My heart is broken into a million pieces. I’d give anything to have you here with us. Watch over us Daddy and guide us through this life without you until we see you again. Your Tauni Too ❤️
