To the Johnson and Doctor families, it saddened me to hear of James' passing. Please take comfort in knowing that this is merely a transition. James and I were in the class of 1964. He was well liked. I will keep you in prayer before our father, All Mighty God. Harriet Jones Elder

To the Johnson and Doctor families. Just know that God is too wise to make a mistake. He saw that Diesel was ready for his journey home so he dispatched an Angel to bring him home. Remember weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.
