Oh my oh my!!! Beauty, Mary and the entire family, how sorry we were to learn of the passing of our dearly beloved friend James. We go a long, long way back from child hood to members of Sweet Home Baptist Church. James, Beauty, Deacon Shaw and his wife Barbara would share numerous precious times just fellowshipping and sharing fond thoughts. We never had a conversation where we didn't talk about the love of God. James and beauty are strong soldiers for the Lord. No more sickness, sadness and pain again
He is at rest now, we are hoping that you and all the family find comfort in the Precious ,loving memories of James. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. Our Love, Prayers and thoughts are with you all. R.I.H. James
