Never got to meet him, but knew his family through church. I pray everyday that God comforts this family through their difficult time.

As parents of a son in active military duty, our hearts ache for your loss. It's difficult for parents to bury a child, for wives to bury their husbands. May God's peace and understanding give you great comfort for the days, weeks, months, years to come. Until you meet James again.

I was one of his instructors at Goodfellow and I was saddened when I heard the news. My deepest sympathy.
