Our oldest nephew, he grew up with us pretty much as a sibling. Words can't express the loss we are feeling in our family these past few years. Give everyone our love when you see them James! We love you!

When James and I became friends. We were work together at Feather River Materials, James was doing something I don't remember what, but he said Ah Hell then I asked him , are you from Okla. ? He said yes why ? I told him the only people I have ever heard say Ah Hell were from Okla. We then began to talk and found out we both worked on a sewer treatment plant in Sand Springs at the same time several years earlier. He called me his brother from another Mother from that point on and introduce me to the family as such. I am very Blessed to have known such a kind and loving person as James .My Brother You will forever be missed
