One of the most Godly men I have ever met. Our last conversation was his concerns for our church and how to make it grow. He expressed so much love and appreciation for the people in his life. I have not known him for long, but love him dearly. He and Miss Claudine are such an inspiration in their love for one another and strength of their relationship. Nothing warmed my heart more than watching them in church and the sweet way he would hug her, stroke her neck, or kiss her cheek. I will miss you so much Bro. James.
