So sorry about James just found out about him passing away. May God be with each one of the family and comfort your heart. I love you all you are like my family. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
My thoughts and Prayers are with all of the family of James. James was a well liked person and he always spoke to you every time he would see you. I never heard him say a unkind word about anyone. Hilda, James and I grew up together, went to school together and our Daddy's were know as part of the "Pea Pickers" who were Mitchell Ayers, Wilson Dale, Ira Speck and Lindsey Thompson. Wilson, Mitchell, Truman Hawkins and J T Carwile would take turns once a month to cut each others hair and us kids would always go with our Daddy so we could play with the kids. James, Hilda and I always looked forward to the time we got to spend playing together when we were growing up. It is memories like these that we like to look back on and remember. Kids now a days don't realize that times like these were wonderful fun filled memories we made ourselves as we didn't have computers, telephones, a car, a lot of us didn't have a TV and we walked where ever we went. We really appreciated what we had and was very thankful for our friends and neighbors. I'm sorry I want be able to come to the visitation or services; but my thoughts are with all of you, and I will always remember James as a good friend and a wonderful human being. He will be deeply missed. Rest In Peace my friend!!!!!!!!
James was one of the best friends anyone could have. He visited Lester Boles everyday several times a day. He was a caring loving person and helped anyone who needed his help. He will greatly be missed by Lester and myself everyday James loved his family and was always talking about his kids, grandkids, and friends. We are so sorry for his family and send them our love and prayers. We loved James as a friend and he was a true friend to us. James lived his life to the fullest filled with loving family and friends. We are so saddened at his passing but we know he’s at peace
