My sincerest condolences on the loss of James. He was one of the few all around nice people I had the pleasure of knowing since I came to Alabama (in 95). Always smiling, or willing to lend a hand. He will be sorely missed. Until we meet again.

We would like to pass on our deepest condolences to friends and family. Many of us here in Ogden worked extensively with James (as we knew him) over the phone while several of us had the privilege to meet him in person.

We are absolutely heartbroken and will think of him often. His is a presence that will be sorely missed.

My condolences to James' family and friends. Although I did not personally know him very well I know that my boyfriend Matt has lost a good friend, as I'm sure others feel the same way. I'm thankful we had him in our lives for the time we did.
