It's hard to believe that the time has come. Not only have you been an uncle to me, but you've also been a grandfather to me as well. You and Kay have been there for me when nobody was. Staying over after being with someone else when Granny had her stroke, helping us out when we needed it, and giving me a place to stay after Granny passed. I'll always remember the times the you and I sat in the TN Vols Rocking Chairs on the front porch on gorgeous spring and summer days with you drinking a beer and just talking about life. I'll cherish those memories for the rest of my life. I love you James and I know I'll see you again

Jennifer I couldn't have said it any better myself, you have a way with words, I love you girl! He was the best Uncle I don't what I would have done without him.
The last thing he said to me was I will always love you baby girl and I will always carry that with me.
You will forever be missed and loved deeply! Give Mama my Love!

I wanted to be the first to write on here.... there's not enough words to even to begin to describe how pure your heart is and the amount happiness and joy your brought into everyone's life that you have met were as it being friends or family. I would be lying to myself if I said I had slowly trying to prepare my self at the thought of loosing you so it wouldn't hurt as bad for when the time actaully came... but it didnt work...when you died you took a piece of me with you.... My days will never be the same knowing ill never hear " I love you sugar" again.. your life and your smile is apart of the person I am today. Having you as a uncle was simply the greatest ever! My child hood memories are wrapped around you... I will always miss you... I will love you... and the hurt of loosing you will never go away. Please give aunt sue a hug and kiss for me!
