I knew Brother James since I was 8 years old. (52)
He wasn't just a man of God. The Grimes family considered him our family. Our go-to when we needed strength, hope, inspiration, and a direct line to the man upstairs. A beautiful soul. He, and Wanda were two of the most special, sweetest people on the planet. They were always there to comfort. Just their presence, smile, and welcomed prayers. They've seen our family through marriage, baptisms, and the loss of loved ones.
Heaven gained a soldier of God when you walked through those gates Brother James. I know you're fishing with Dad, and sitting on the dock with Wanda laughing, and rejoicing in the reunion.
Thank you for looking out for us (still) you beautiful angel.
See you again my friend~ Dana
