October 23, 2013 "Carol, I am so sorry for your loss. I will never forget Coach, I am so thankful you came to Colorado and I was fortunate to get to know you through my dad Fred Casotti. May you always remember the wonderful 61 years you had with each other." - Candy Casotti-Nesheim (Broomfield, CO)
October 23, 2013 "In 1988, Coach James met with a group of Redmond Jr. High students. The meeting was a reward for outstanding grades and accomplishment on the athletic field.
The first thing Don asked was, "how many of you go to church"....the conversation went on and a young man asked, "what are your goals this year?". Coach James replied, to run a marathon and read the Old and New Testament front to back! That got their attention! and they didn't have Books on Tape!
What a guy. What a program. People like Don James and Mike Lude VERY rarely come along and we Huskies were the beneficiaries.

October 23, 2013 "Dear Carol,
I have so many wonderful memories of Coach James and you during our time with the team. He was an incredible man, a great role model for the student athletes, as well as the staff, with high standards and concern for everyone. Needless to say, he was a great coach, as well. May God bless you in your time of mourning. Patty (Hall) Woodruff (former wife of Rick Hall)" - Patty Hall-Woodruff (Lincoln, NE)
