So sorry to here of James passing we have lost a good man. I worked with James for many years at Cottrell james was always friendly and willing to help others I guess one of the most treasured things we discussed was his preparation for Leaving this world he was confident and sure of his salvation trusting in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. That is the real treasure down here is being prepared to leave here and go there;were he is the apostle Paul tells us which is fare better. So I no the pain and sorrow is great but this I know his grace is sufficient for you so please lean on him he will see you thru. And remember Child of God James is in Christ and Christ is in you so he's not so far away there will be a happy reunion day and I so look forward to it. God bless and supply you with a peace that passes all understanding..
Kenneth Armstrong.
