  1. I was the only girl out of 4 brothers, James was 2 years and 4 months older! He was a very supportive and loving person. He was an amazing man, father and brother. He will be extremely missed, my 💔 until we meet again 🙏

  2. I was lucky to have James in my life for the last 7 years but it wasn’t long enough. He enjoyed the sweet things in life like watching the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns football games. He also enjoyed western movies, the original Star Trek series, the Christmas season, and of course music. He had so many stories and jokes to tell. James became my best friend and companion. He was such a good man and very giving. He certainly made my life brighter. My life isn’t the same without him.
