I met Kyle many years ago as a pre-teen. I worked for his grandparents, aunt and father. Him and his sister spent a lot of time at the office so I got watch them grow up for many years. Kyle and Kamie loved each other dearly and even while feuding they always had each others backs. His family was very much my family as well because thats how the James family was. To this day, I still think of them fondly. Kyle, to say you will be missed is an understatement at best. I haven't seen you in many years but the news of your passing was felt deep in my heart. I'll forever remember you as the mischievous teen you were. Full of life and happiness. Fun loving but pushing the limits just to see how far you could go. My prayers have been with your family and they will be for awhile. Rest in peace kiddo...I know you had some awesome angels waiting for you in heaven...

Kyle was my beloved stepson, for the few years GOD had given me, he carried my heart wherever he went. He was full of life, delightful, spirited, rambunctious and always curious. He is the son that any Father would be proud of. He is the man that males should aspire to be. Generous, loving and down right stubborn when he needed to be. I love him as one of my own and in some ways more. I saw him thru college and through the beginning of his career, always trying to be better always trying to be smarter. I will carry Kyle in my heart all my life. He was the candle in the dark, the loving spirit ready to give at a moments notice. The one soul needed on earth, but called to GOD's greater purpose.
I will always carry a part of Kyle with me, the candle in the dark.
GOD rest your soul son, you will be greatly missed.
