The world was a better place with Uncle James in it. We are going to miss his smile, humor, warmth and fun-loving attitude forever. He touched our lives and will always be in our hearts. His love for his family, country and friends symbolizes the kind of man he was. He was a one of a kind, who happened to have an identical twin. I know he is having a blessed reunion with John, Blondie, Mark and all the rest of our passed loved ones. Thank you, Uncle James, for blessing my life with your presence. I love you much.
