Mrs. Reba, I read with much sadness today in The Vidette about Mr. James passing. You may not remember me but my family went to Iuka Baptist Church when you all were here in Iuka. If you recall, my husband, John, had prostate cancer and while he was in the hospital here in Iuka, Mr. James ( or Jim as we knew him) went everyday and sat with him as I was trying to continue to work. I have thought of you all often over the years. I will never forget Jim and how precious he was to my family. ...

Aunt Reba, Paul, Van and Becky, you are in my heart and prayers. I have many wonderful memories of Uncle James and all of you. I am so sorry. Please know I am thinking of you.
Love, Terry Thornton Sparks
