I remember the jokes, the funny spirit, and the dynamic personality of my grandfather. I think the thing I’ll remember most was that even though he had this jubilant exterior that would make fun of you no matter what you wore or what you were doing, he still loved each and every person he met. And if you had the opportunity to be blessed by him he never took no for an answer.

My Uncle James was a wonderful and loving man. I never knew a time when I was around him that I was not laughing and smiling. He always brought a smile to your face. I will always cherish the many wonderful memories that I was blessed to share with him. I will miss him dearly and I loved him very much. To the family, I love you and always hold on to your precious memories of your father and grandfather. May god be with you always.
