So sorry to hear about James. Praying for his beautiful wife Wanda. When they visited family in D’Iberville they would always visit their family and come to church with them. He always had a big smile and we enjoyed their visit. Our prayers are especially with his wife Wanda and that she feels God’s loving arms around her to give her strength each day. So sorry for his family and all that love him. God bless you.

Mr. James was always happy, always smiling, and always eager to love on anyone he came across. His enthusiasm for life was one of the many reasons to love him. As we pray for Mrs. Wanda and his family left here a little while longer, we celebrate he is truly alive and singing in the heavenly choir now with his wonderful voice :)
