  1. I would like to share my sincerest sympathy to the family. Smile every day and be proud to have known and shared life with such a strong and good man.

  2. Words cannot say enough about how special Uncle James was to all of us. The memories that I have will be cherished forever of the times spent with and around Uncle James. We will say goodbye for now and know in our hearts we will see you again when we all go home! To the girls: This cannot be a easy time for you but have peace that he is not suffering any longer and has made his journey home to spend eternity with our heavenly father. Teresa and the boys send their love and condolences.

  3. James- I will never forget you. We
    had some goodtimes playing when all
    lived at Fairview during the 1940’s
    when as kids we all lived near each
    other like family. Your sweet personality will always be rembered.
    You are at rest now with our
    Heavenly Father after so many years
    of hard work. You will surely be missed. To family: I am so sorry
    for you loss and God Bless. Betty
