James, you were a good and loyal friend to me for many years. I have thought a lot of you through the years and the good times we had growing up. I remember riding around in your brother's '51 Ford and our times at Hickory High School. I am saddened at the loss for your family and for losing a good friend. My condolences to your family. We'll miss you.
