  5. Mark Richards says:

    I was a classmate of Jim’s at Kenmore High School and always considered him among my best friends from those days.

    We shared many laughs and a lot of conversation back then and I have always noticed that, when our paths crossed again as the years went by, we seemed to simply pick-up where we left-off.

    I will carry the memory of this good man with me the rest of my days.

    Hoping that God grants you all peace and strength.

    I’m sure that he will walk with you on your own journeys.

    I can’t believe he is gone, the last time I saw James was at Uncle Joes’ funeral and I remember how happy he was holding my son Rowan. I’m always gonna remember him that way. Rest in peace Cousin James, we will all miss you very much.
