  1. Laura, so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time! I only met James once and he seemed like a very nice person!

  2. Dear Laura, I’m so sorry to hear of James passing. May it comfort you to know others are thinking of you during this difficult time. Take Care, Penny Williams Freeman

  3. Henderson Family, Sorry for your lost. Ps 147:3 says ‘He heals the brokenhearted ones, and he binds up their wounds.’ We need comfort in many areas of life. One of the greatest causes of grief is the loss of a loved one in death. Sincerely

  4. Mrs. Henderson, I was a friend of James through Rusty and Michael Williams. I am so very sorry to hear of this loss. I didn’t spend a lot of time around him, but the few times I did, I really enjoyed getting to know James. He volunteered to and helped us move once, with no complaints. He was very generous with his time to do this for us. He was a very kind and helpful person towards me and that lifted my spirits. I would have liked to have known him better.
    May The Lord wrap his arms around you and comfort you during your time of need. Praying for you!

  5. May
    God provide you and your family with peace and “the comfort from the
    Scriptures” during this difficult time. (Romans 15:4) For more comforting Scriptures,
