Just found out about James passing. He was very kind man and always had a story to tell. I will always remember him laughing with a tickle in his eye.

Diane,
We are sad to hear of James passing. Our family has been blessed by our friendship. The kindness given to Amaron in those tuff times.
I would often see James at our favorite eatery "Angelo's".

Gods best to you .
