I worked with James at P C Hardware and am sad to hear of his death. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

James was my co-worker for many years. Unfortunately, we had lost contact. He was a good man and a good friend. I've thought a lot about him recently. I was sad that the number I had for him had been disconnected. I can talk to him anytime I want now. I'm sure he's still a good listener... Maybe he'll even send me a sign. On the other hand, he may be too busy in Heaven, now that he's reunited with Ellen, Elbert, Jesse, Betty, Jackson, and all the other PC family members who went before him. My love to the family. We are praying for you all.

Kenny was not only a very special nephew to Toni and I but was also a good man to all those who had the good fortune to know him. Kenny remained courageous and straight forward to his very last breath. We won't see the likes of him again! I will miss Kenny and always think of him with kindness.
