James, you were a special friend and I count it a blessing to have known you and all the good days and bad days of fishing every Friday. Thank you for being the friend you were.

I will never forget the day that I met y'all. Got me back in to church. You took me in wearing the same dress every Sunday, only did church. Then I started Sunday school. Then I started Singing for the Lord. I will forever be greatful for the way you served the Lord and being such an example of God's love. I love y'all! He will be missed.
