Mitch, Merlin and Carolyn I just read about James passing and wanted to contact all of you. James was a VERY good man, kind and always laughing and kidding others (especially me). I want all of you to know that over the years he would always tell me (whenever he got serious which wasnt too often) how much he loved his family.

I was honored to have met him and will miss him very much.

God bless all of you.
