Not sure what to say?

JA and family,
I was very sad to hear about James passing. I realize that is October already, but I live out of state and learned about it via facebook. James brought so many memorable moments to everyone's lives young and old. I remember cutting his hair. He was my favorite patron. So I hope God will wrap his loving arms around your entire family to give you all the strength to get through your difficult times. Sincerely Karen

When I was growing up in Decatur, some of my fondest memories were from the skating rink. James was always a very nice man, and a wonderful skater. Thanks so much for the great memories, and may God bless his family who grieve his loss.
