My brother was my hero. Protector. Confidant. Court jester. Encourager. Friend. He continually called me his “baby sister” no matter my age. He always told me he loved me after every phone call, and thanked me for caring for our aging mother knowing the tremendous sacrifice I have been making.
My brother who read bedtime stories to me as a child by disguising his voice into the many characters in the story is now in heaven. I will miss him more than he will ever know.
My buddy. My pal. We agreed to disagree during our long political, religious and other types of conversations. His silly, sarcastic, comments and jokes took the edge off when the talk was getting heated. He had the ability to make me laugh even when I was mad and frustrated with him or life.
My brother battled life’s bullets: He survived Vietnam, drug addiction financial challenges, etc., and made me proud that he never gave up the fight.
He always said, “God has given us an expiration date, but it wasn’t visible like on a carton of milk.” Well, his time has come. My super intelligent, well read, battleship model making, sports fan enthusiast is now at peace. I am grateful for all the fond memories we shared which will be treasured for ever. You have fought the good fight.

May God bless you, my son, Robbie, for every thing you did for our family, your wife and family, friends, and yourself.
Annette, thank you for being a good wife and sticking with James during the good, as well as the bad times. I know you have fond memories to help you through this time.
I will always love and appreciate you.
Your mother-in-law, Joyce
