Memories Timeline


  1. James was a great friend and I had a longtime working relationship with him. I miss James already. I think about him all the time and his battle he fought. I also think about all of the good times and how he could solve problems like no other.
    My prayers and condolences go out to Lisa and the rest of the family.

  2. Lisa I am so sorry. Not sure of the circumstances but Iā€™m hoping we can find time after the COL to get together for a much needed phone call to catch up my friend. And I am so sorry. He was way to young. Miss you!! ā¤ļøšŸ™
