So sorry to hear about James' passing. He lived across the street from my mom and I know he checked in on her from time to time. James was a good man and he will be greatly missed. Sending prayers for his family and all those whose lives he impacted that are saddened by his loss.

James was the “real deal” I loving referred to him as Banty rooster because of his red
hair & his dance at first Campmeeting he came to. I have several unforgettable memories of James. Being horseback at the ranch, working cattle & the time we rode up in the high country & saw herd of elk that had at least 1000 head, but the most memorable was when he & Mickey laid 2 miles of pipeline at the ranch to
Bring water to the headquarters. When James found out our well went down he offered to come & lay a new pipeline then refused to take a dime. That’s way beyond friendship.
James enjoy your New mount in heaven I know it’s going to be a good one cowboy
