Mr. Hollis Was a hard worker and I know first hand! I would leave my house after doing my morning chores any given Saturday, only to arrive as he's mowing the lawn, working on a car or just messing around in his garage. It was like he was waiting on me cause I already knew if my bestfriend hadn't finished her chores we weren't going anywhere. So I did the only thing I knew how and that was to assist her in doing her chores so we could kick-it all day... I remember telling him I joined the tennis team, his face lit up cause that was right up his alley the man loved to play him some tennis and offered the best advice... I'll see on the court🎾

Psalm 23 KJV 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Hello Family…Just wanted to say before James had any children, my mother allowed me to spend a few summers with him and his wife. Time spent with my brother was wonderful! We got to know each other well, and he was always supportive and kind to me, like a father. Whenever I think of him i remember living with him as a child, still in elementary school… He was my big brother, my superhero. In my mind he could leap tall buildings and protect us with his superpower. I will never forget James… my brother my Hero! I’m so sorry he is no longer with us,
