Dearest Mary Evelyn, I am so sorry for your loss. As you know, I have loved and respected James and you for so many years...my mother taught me to love ya'll when all of you were at Christ Methodist. James was such a good man. He had integrity, a welcoming nature, a gentle spirit, and a wonderful smile that surely mirrored his huge heart. We all have been blessed by having both of you in our lives. Sending much love to you.
