I always thought of James Henry as a friend. He was one of the best athletes to come from Apple Springs and I have some really good memories of playing basketball with him when we were in High ,school. I would love to attend the funeral but am afraid of the virus. I will be thinking of him today,

I do remember when we got together at Thanksgiving to eat and James and Steven would get out the musical instruments and go to town..That was an AWSOME experience and we all enjoyed it..He will be missed and God Bless You James and may the rest of the family find Peace..
