I have known James for many years and always enjoyed talking to him. He and I used to talk about the Razorbacks and how they played on a particular day. We would see each other at First Baptist church in Luxora. He always seemed to be in a cheerful mood and seemed to have a way of making me smile. He will be missed by family and friends. My condolences to Judy and all his family and friends. RIP my friend.
Judy I am so sorry for your loss.
We are praying for your comfort in the Lord. We know your dad was very special to you. Ronnie and Tami
