    Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us everyday.
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear.

  2. Just wanted to say how sorry I am that James is gone. We were good friends when we were on the road together for Rexel in Ft Smith and then in Pueblo…we really had some good times together and I considered him a dear friend. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with your family in this time of loss.

  3. James, you were so helpful to me when I had all my “dumb blonde” questions. You will be greatly missed! My condolences to those you leave behind.

  4. To the Family and Friends of Jimmy:

    As Long As You Remember Me

    As long as you remember me
    My memory will live on.

    My spirit will be there with you
    At every breaking dawn.

    I’ll sing to you through birds in spring

    and whisper through the trees,

    I’ll bring you gentle comfort with
    A warm, caressing breeze.

    As long as you remember me,
    My love will fill your heart

    And help to ease the sorrow
    That you feel while we’re apart.

    With thoughts of me,
    Perhaps you’ll see

    The wonder of each day,
    The joy of sunlit afternoons,

    And nature’s grand display.

    As long as you remember me,
    I always will be near

    To lend you sweet tranquility
    As night time stars appear.

    The bond that we have shared
    Will be a link from me to you

    To give you hope for brighter days
    And strength to see you through.

  5. James, you were way too young! When we hung out with John at different places, I had a lot of fun. I’m so sorry we had our differences. I did think about you at times though, and wondered how you all were doing! I’m glad I got to see you before you left. Be at peace now! 🙂

  6. Farewell my friend, so sad to see you go. You will be missed by family and many friends. I enjoyed those times around town, the High-5’s, your laugh and sense of humor. Thank you for being my friend.
