The good Lord indeed broke the mold when he made James Walden. One of a kind does not even begin to describe him. From his wealth of knowledge, his sense of humor, and his incredible love for his family we all have been blessed to have been part of his life. We are sad he is no longer walking among us, but no way he ever leaves us. His spirit is just that strong.

From a personal perspective, I have always thought of him as my second father because I have learned so much from him and he always seemed to love me as his own. I will never forget his life lessons and will strive to carry on as he would want me to.
Lastly, I am blessed to be married to his first born and there is no doubt Marsha definitely inherited his strength. I have witnessed it and am so very proud of her resolve thru the hard times over the past week. Yes, it was tough but she learned from him and it showed.

Godspeed James- we all hope to see you again.

Love you- Michael Blessitt
