    James was a highly intelligent and talented musician. He touched many with his music.
    Like many of us he had challenges and although we will miss him, he will no longer be
    suffering and finally be at peace. James will always be remembered for his smile and the sound of his voice. Rest in peace to the sound of your music forever and always.

    James never gives up his faith. I had good great memory of helped with him as good enjoyed and more energy life to mowing grass, fixing porch and fence for more than two months. My daughter loved to dance and listen his music several time during summer at his home. We will miss him.
