Finding this information on line saddens me. I was James's teacher at Watterson Elementary School. His contagious smile and loving heart was a gift from God. Tonya, I can only imagine your sorrow. I am praying for you and your family. I would love to hear from you.

Dear family members,I have fond memories of James' participation in Sabbath School class. He was always involved, reading scripture verses and joining in with pertinent questions and comments. Last time I saw him at church, he was so happy about what he was learning at the health center in TN and we had a nice conversation about his plans. He seemed eager to share and use what he was learning with others. I am so very sorry for your loss and am praying the Lord sustains each of you. I will miss James.Sincerely, Lois Schell

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of James. I knew him from church and was shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. He had such a passion for our Lord. Gone to soon at such an early age. Rest in peace my dear friend until that day when the trumpet blows and our Lord comes to take us home.
