James always treated me like his second little sister. He always greeted me with, “Hey Sis!” And I would reply “Hey Brother!” We always embraced the Love we Shared for Our Dallas Cowboys. DC4L. He will forever be missed.

I'm so glad that James had a chance to visit NC. He was a dancing machine! He danced as if no one was watching! Besides my husband he was the biggest Dalkas Cowboy fan I've ever met. I'm glad that our paths crossed. He will be missed!
