My condolence go out to the family. James was a true friend to me. I will miss playing golf with him. His last message to me was: "Keep that smooth swing from the last time we played". I will truly miss James.

Shirley, it so unbelievable that James is no longer with us. I keep thinking of times we had spent together, some good times and some hilarious times. I remember the times with him when he was a little boy and the years as he became an adult. Memories are good. Love us forever. I will love you and James forever. May the heavens console you and good memories keep you steady.
