I am sorry for your family's loss. James will be missed.
I was so sorry to hear about James passing. We found out Thursday evening. We dedicated EasyWalk's program Thursday to James. We know how much it meant to him. On Friday, I tried to come to the funeral at Spry funeral home but did not know to come to Athens - we assumed it was Huntsville since the announcement we saw did not specify Athens. We will miss James' friendship and his help keeping our sound levels so the residents can hear us well. I'm so sorry I was not there to support you. Maybe God grant you peace in this very difficult time.
I too attempted to attend the funeral but went to Huntsville instead of Athens. Please accept my condolences on the passing of James. It was indeed an honor to have known James, and I will truly miss him. James and I talked often about his experience with and passion for music. We will think of him often as we, EasyWalk, play at Valley View. May God embrace you in comfort during this difficult time.
