As I did not know Jamie, my message is for his dear mother.

Gwenda, it has been many, many years since I last saw you, but it only took a minute for memories of years gone by to come rushing back when I read about the tragic death of your son, Jamie. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I know your heart is broken, and I pray that our Lord, Jesus Christ will bring strength and comfort to you in the days ahead. I know that you and Jamie’s dad and his siblings are very proud of the person Jamie had become. My husband, Johnny sends his condolences, and we will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless each and every one of you.
