I knew James before Dana. They lived three doors down the street from us on Terrell. Also our daughter Amy was the Flower Girl in their wedding. Such a small world. Love you Dana. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

This is one of my favorite cousins!! We had a lot of time together when we were kids growing up when we visited my grand mother’s house! We shared lots in common with our faith in Christ. It was exciting to see his godly family and hear how great things were going with them. He visited us in Florida years ago and we Immediately picked up on our common interest and solidified that friendship we had. I will miss James!!! We know where he is and that is a great comfort! We will pray for the family!

God Bless you all. James and I sat across from each other at Graybar for many years. His love of family was always first and foremost in our conversations. We know he was welcomed to the Kingdom with shouts of joy. May God's love and peace be with you.

I’m so sorry for your loss. James was a wonderful person. I loved working with him at CommScope and enjoyed hearing his stories about his family. He loved to brag about y’all! I pray for peace and comfort for all of you during this difficult time.
