James you are missed my than words can say. I only knew you for about 2 years but you were a good friend and like a brother to me. I will always remember him for your smile and laughter. I loved your gift for gab. You always had so much to say about everything. Life is so quite without you. I miss you! May you rest in peace. To his family and close friends you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time.

I only met James a few times but he was always kind when we were together. I was lucky to have known him. Shocked by this news because he was so young. May he rest in peace. My prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends. May God carry you along on your new journey James.
