We spent many good years with James. He worked with other companies but always seemed to be part of our brand with Crystal Springs Apparel. He joined our team and became our sales manager. He laughed a lot and had a great smile. He enjoyed life. Very sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
