I met James some years ago. I was his mail carrier in Vandalia. We became friends due to the fact that we could just chat about life struggles and how God is there for us thru it all. I think it helped each of us and let us know that we can get thru anything with Jesus. I really found inspiration in James and his love for life and enthusiasm. He always was very willing to help others and fun spirited. I’m going to miss him but I find comfort in knowing he knew the Lord and will be watching over everyone until we meet again. My condolences to family and friends. God bless you all
