Crystal and Sara our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time.
I will never forget how kind James was to Uncle Delmas and how he was always there to help us in taking care of him.
He would always take the time to speak when we met in the grocery store or would wave as I went by if he was by the street when he was working at Mars Hill University during their construction projects.
Prayers for Gods comfort to you and all the family. We love you.

I will forever cherish the memories James and I shared over the last years. Especially the fun we had hunting together in Georgia. The ladder stand that he put up remains in the same spot, and is well known among all current members, even those who never met him, as "James' stand". his memory lives on.
