"Today we honored James wishes and spread his ashes in the beautiful Sabino Canyon in Tucson Arizona. A small group of very dear friends of James were there. The sun was shining and the birds were singing and the water was flowing strong. We held hands and talked about how we met him and how much we love him and how much he will be missed. Such a beautiful setting to help send him home. Rest in peace James, you will be remembered and loved always."

Today, many of your fellow classmates will come together to celebrate your life and what you meant to each one of us. "We had joy we had fun we had Seasons in the Sun. When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that spring is nearly here, With the flowers and trees blooming everywhere, We wish that you could be here." God bless you my friend."

"In processing how your life and death have affected me, I remembered how you came into my life, the interactions we had (memorable with life, laughter and fun), the distance for many years and then reconnecting in 2011. You're someone that I just clicked with, had a kinship with, and a connection. Jimbo, I have been trying to find the words to express how your passing has affected me and then by the grace and timing of God's love, a new friend (Tyler) summed it up for me..."From the moment we’re born, we’re conditioned into a world of physicality. We know what we see, what we feel, what we hear, what we grow to understand from our single perspective. All through familiarizing ourselves with our surroundings, and the people we grow to know and love become an inherit part of that. No matter how much our circumstances change, and no matter what we go through, those we love become a source of stability. Upon the passing of a loved one, not only do we experience the physical absence of a single person — but we often grieve what they represented and provided to us. Sometimes it takes the passing of a loved one to make us realize just how significant their impact really was. They never stop teaching us." Jimbo, I will continue to learn what your crossing my path has meant and how I will reflect at the right time, to hopefully share what I learned from you to help another beautiful soul in their time of need and make a difference. May you rest in peace, dear one! Love...a friend who was rooting for you in life. Keith."

"Jim will be forever missed.  I gave my heart to him MANY years ago...and he broke it apart.  I will always remember his witty ways and humor...including an incident where my involvement with him got my nose broken.  RIP cutie!  So sad, so sad."

"In loving memory of Jim's faith, courage, struggles, aspirations, achievements, and kindness, a reading of Emily Dickinson's poem:  "This World is not Conclusion."

A Species stands beyond -
Invisible, as Music -
But positive, as Sound -
It beckons, and it baffles -
Philosophy, dont know -
And through a Riddle, at the last -
Sagacity, must go -
To guess it, puzzles scholars -
To gain it, Men have borne
Contempt of Generations
And Crucifixion, shown -
Faith slips - and laughs, and rallies -
Blushes, if any see -
Plucks at a twig of Evidence -
And asks a Vane, the way -
Much Gesture, from the Pulpit -
Strong Hallelujahs roll -
Narcotics cannot still the Tooth
That nibbles at the soul -"
