Helen, John, David, and Margaret,
My brother, Albert, called me to tell me the news of James passing. Words can not really express the sadness that is in my heart upon hearing about his death. I certainly will remember him helping out the altar servers of St. Paul's with our car wash events and the antics that ensued at the end of those events with the spray guns and water hoses. I'm so proud and honored that he and Helen were my confirmation sponsors. My thoughts and prayers will be with all of you during this time of grief and I hope that with time that your sorrow will be replaced with the wonderful memories of James that you will always be able to cherish.
God Bless,
Cindy
