I don't have the appropriate words to express how saddened I am by the passing of Mr. James W. England. He was one of the most influential people in my life. He inspired me to better myself, and to care about things greater than the small world I lived in. He was smart and funny and kind. I'm very grateful we kept in touch over the years, but I'm so very sad that I didn't get to say good bye. There is no doubt in my mind that I would not be where I am today had he not been a part of my life. My deepest sympathies go out to his family and loved ones. He was one of a kind, and the world could use more people like him.
