I am so honored to have had this man as a surrogate father for the early years of my life. He always was there for his family and friends. His influence and lessons taught to myself and his grandchildren remain close to our hearts.
I never told him in life how much we loved him. I know that he lives on through the people he touched.

Even though I can't be there during this time, I want to say Thank you Papa James for everything you made sure we had both spiritually and physically. I know you are in heaven with God and other loved ones.
