I only had the pleasure of meeting you once, but you left an impression. As I saw the smile on your daughter's face (Shauna) and how proud she was to have you as her father. She spoke of you often and always spoke of the love your showed her and instilled in her. You are loved by many. Your have left a legacy. Rest now, you have a strong family who will mourn, but ensured they are prepared and strong.

My friend, James. You are a good man. I don’t know you well, but I believe I know who you are. You are a good man. I will never refer to you in the past tense. I feel you here. I’m truly sorry I will never see your face on the earth. Good bye, for now. I’ll see you again. You are in my heart. ❤️
