James loved the Lord dearly and was a man of prayer. He loved praying for people regardless of need. His other passions included music through singing, playing and songwriting. And talking. James loved to visit with people. He was a hard worker, and always willing to help others. Most importantly, his family was everything. James loved them deeply. His investment and care for them will be greatly missed. Joining his darlin’, Judy, James reminds us, “One of these days, he was going home.”
