My Dear Sweet Nephew and Godson,

I don't know if you realize how much you were loved. But I hope you did.... Your smile was contagious - Your hugs were strong - Your heart was huge....

I was honored to be your Godmother and Auntie
and I know I speak for the entire family of aunts/uncles and cousins when I say - we will miss you terribly! A piece of my heart has gone from me - and hopefully you are holding onto that piece and can feel it's love - to take with you.

Please give your warm hugs to everyone awaiting for you....Grandma Walton misses those too!

My Deepest Sympathy to Chris, Dawn and the entire Walton family during such sad times. James was a kind, caring, loving and respectful person who had a heart of gold. Whenever I seen James he always greeted me with a handshake and a hug that made me smile. I had the privilege of him calling me Uncle. We sure made some great memories thru the years. Anyone who knew James could only say good things about him. Rest in peace James in Heaven along with Gramma & Grandpa Nunes, Grandma Walton and Grandpa Lou. Thoughts and prayers to all of you and may God Bless your Family

We’ve been friends with the Waltons since we moved here more than 25 years ago...James was at many of our backyard gatherings and I remember him as a kind gentle young man, that I often greeted as he walked by the house.....May he Rest In Peace, may he be greeted by previously lost relatives in Heaven. May he watch over the family and protect them. RIP James. xo🙏
