Dearest James,
It has been a full year now since you went
Home to our Heavenly Father. The time
has gone by so quickly and is still so surreal that you are not here.
I think about you often and I miss you more everyday. You are So Loved.
Be at peace.
I Love You,
Mom

Always a brother. Always the most true best friend I'll ever have. I hate to have heard this news today, but to the whole family, know that I love you all and appreciate all you did by welcoming me into your lives when he and I were so close. I'm so late in finding out about this, but know that the pain in my heart hopes to ease the burden of pain that has plagued your hearts all of this time.

James

Shared by Jennifer Guthrie on March 21, 2019

I'm so very sorry for your loss. My heart aches for you, Ms. Michelle. My mother and I lived a couple of doors down from you in Treetop. James and I are nearly the same age. Your son was truly a kind soul to me and I'm deeply saddened at his passing. You are in my prayers. James was a part of some of the happiest childhood memories I have. I know that time goes by way too quickly and people grow up and grow apart but please know I still carry those memories in my heart.


With great sympathy,


Jennifer McGowan
