It is with a sad heart I write this. James worked part-time at my business on Bald Head Island. He was a quite, self-starter who was an exemplary employee. All James did reflected favorably on the Company. You come across many people in your life, most of whom fade from your memory as time passes. Sometimes memories come back from things which remind you of them. This may seem small, but James, unlike most , always wore fingerless work gloves. Whenever I see pair I think of him. We had to give James up some time ago because of his illness. He has been missed. I am sure it has been painful to watch James slipping away. For all whom mourn him, may peace be with you.

We really enjoyed working with Jim on Bald Head Island. What a small world, we found out we had also come to Brunswick County from the same area of Virginia and had some friends in common. Our heartfelt sympathies to all of his family and friends. He was a super guy, and will be remembered fondly.
