I never got the pleasure of meeting you James, But I hear lots and lots about you, From just about everyone in the family. Wish I could have had the chance to get your blessing to marry your brother, Even if you didnt like me I still would haha. But seriously I know you are out there looking over all of your family. Hope you are resting in peace. <3

James always freely admitted that he was a "Momma's Boy" and proud of it. In 33 yrs I don't think he forgot Mother's Day (well maybe a few times but the memory ain't what it use to be"). Sometimes a mushy card (yes, I always cried), or a cutezy one depicting his angelic childhood (not), or a stuffed bear or balloons. Whatever it was, it came from his huge heart. I knew he loved me and he knew I loved him. As Mother's Day draws near, so does the ache that he is not here to share it with me. I'm doing better but the holidays still get to me. I miss his hugs, his laughter, his smile & crazy antics. I love you Jamie.....always! Mom

James, Although we didn't know each other, I have known your mother and how much she misses you and loved you. You had to have been a very special person.

James knew he was loved; by myself and his mother. We tried every way we knew how to help him achieve his dream.

I do miss him

During Highschool I would always be changing my hair color, one time I decided on a very dark red...so James being james started teasing me saying it was purple and I kept saying it was red. Finally I decided to ask a teacher to settle a the dispute (Mr. Shore who's bald) so I asked mr Shore if my hair looked red or purple and he said red, that's when James piped in "look who your asking he's got no hair." LOL...gotta love James's humor.
