Not sure what to say?

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of great loss. May GOD comfort and guide you in the days ahead.

I am truly sorry to hear about Mr James, I have known him for a decade or so , I lease property from him, I have left several voice mail messages for him during the last week or so checking on him due to the flooding to make sure he was ok, I never heard back from him & just found out he passed away a few minutes ago. I am truly saddened, I will miss him, I thought the world of him.

Throughout my life Mr Sport was one of the constants that i knew would always be there despite all of my travels. When I came home to visit I knew that he would be there on Sunday at church to always shake my hand and say glad to see you. My deepest sympathy to Emily as well as the church. The history of dedicated service to the community will be long lasting as every life he touched most likely will touch others.
His smile and caring radiated. So we can all be lucky to have known such a...

My greataunt Liza served as a housekeeper to Mr. James' parents for many years. It was through her that we knew the Harvey Family.

My heartfelt sympathy is extended to this family. May God Almighty allow His grace and mercy be with them.

Emily, one person who was always a joy to see was Sport Harvey. Smart and friendly, he deceived folks with his kind of "oh shucks" demeanor, but as with all the Harveys, he was intelligent and passionate about his interests. You and Corey and the children were his legacy, and he was so proud of you. I will really miss him and was privileged to call him friend.

Much love,

Ann Jones

Emily, I think you already know how much we love your dad ....well, we loved both of your parents. They were both very special to us and we have many many many great memories. They were so special to both of us. I can assure you that the Lions Club just will not be the same without him at the meetings. What about the choir? It want be the same to not see him singing in the choir. He was so faithful to both and other activities.
I wish I had the words to convey to you the comfort...

Emily, my heart goes out to you, your Dad was so proud of you and your family. God bless you and your family during this sad time.
