Oh my sweet Uncle James,
You had a smile that would light up a room and a laugh that was contagious. You always dropped anything you were doing to help me, give me advice, or just be there for me. I’m going to miss calling and checking in and just talking to you! This earthly loss is so hard to handle, but is definitely heaven’s gain! We love and miss you so much, but you’re no longer in pain, and that gives us comfort! Say hi to my daddy up there for me. I love you ❤️

Oh my sweet Uncle James,
You were always the one who had a smile that would light up a room and whose laugh was contagious. You always gave up anything you were doing to help me, give me advice, and just be there for me. I enjoyed calling and talking to you about random things or just to check in. I am privileged to have you as my uncle and I will always miss you.
This loss on Earth has been difficult to handle but I am so joyful to know you will not be in pain anymore and you get to be reunited with all of our family. This is definitely heaven’s gain!! I love you ❤️

Daddy,
To the most amazing man I have ever known in my life. There isn’t enough words to begin to describe the emptiness and hole I have in my heart since you left this place we call life.
The person who I could always count on to call me atleast 5-10 times a day to see what I was doing or just to make sure I was alright and tell me they loved me. The humor you shared no matter what was going on, you always made light of the situation. The one you could always count on to be there when no one else would be . I don’t think my pain of losing you will ever ease, but I have to find peace knowing your no longer in pain. Your truly a special person and heaven definitely gained an angel when you arrived. I know your up there enjoying all the special people that you have been missing for so long.
I’ll tell you again how much I love you! And I will see you soon! Keep watching over all the ones you love and we will continue to make you proud!

I love you daddy! I miss you!
Lori

My uncle James. I didn’t get too see you often, with living so far away, in Florida. U even made a trip to my house here, when I needed help the most. U were always on my list of people to visit, when I came home. And never disappointed, in the laughs and great times we shared. I always valued and respected ur opinion of me and was proud to call you my uncle. I’m so thankful you are free to fly high with no pain. U will forever be remembered and loved always by me.
