I am honored to have James as my step father for 34 years.
He was a very kind, caring and decent. His heart was bigger than Texas.
There is a very special place in heaven for James.
RIP James
Til we meet again.💜

I Love and miss you so much. I loved to always make you laugh and get a smile on your face. It gave me peace and courage to see you smile even on days I knew you were just putting on a brave face to make others not worry. Your strength, courage and protective nature of others before yourself reminded us you were definitely a soldier. You reminded me to have a sense of humor, even in the worst of times. I wish I was there to hold your hand and kiss your cheek and to tell ypu just how much I love you. You know I would have been if not for unimaginable circumstances . Rest in peace knowing you are in a much better place. I love you Daddy. (Soldier)

He was such a wonderful, loving and good hearted uncle. I'll miss his smile, his humor, and the sound of his voice. As a little girl I was always frightened by his military voice, but grew to have such admiration and the utmost respect for him. His bravery, love, wise wisdom, and those caring, watchful eyes of his is what I will always remember the most. May he rest in peace and rejoice with his momma, sister, brothers, and nephews.
