Praying for peace and comfort for the family during this difficult time. I met James in Woodcrest Assisted Living. He would call me Leesee, he has been the only one in my lifetime to call me that. He had a wonderful sense of humor. Some of the residents and him would get together and have pizza and some adult beverages. Heaven has gained another angel Fly high and rest in love.
