James was one who loved life and laughing. I remember as kids John, James, and I were playing at a new housing development . The idea to jump off the roof Duke's of Hazard style or Starskey and Hutch. (Because I was the innocent one). We got chased off by a builder. How we never got hurt, bless our guardian angels! James is a brother I have cherished all these years and will miss horribly.
