SO SAD THAT U DIDN'T GET MUCH IN RETURN FOR ALL U GAVE TO SOCIETY, PARTICULARLY THE SMILES U PUT ON PEOPLES FACES. IT APPEARS THAT THE SOCIETY U GAVE SO MUCH TO DISHED OUT NOTHING WHEN U WERE IN DIRE NEED OF ASSISTANCE. HOWEVER, U ARE RESTING WITH THE LORD WHERE THERE IS NO NEED OR WANT. ADIEU AND REST IN PEACE PA GRINGORY

People,
James had a roof over his head, maybe not the larger than life type!
James had some health issues other than the blindness you know
James has 4 sons and a daughter. And we’ll ever love him!
James might not be happy, that’s because the system failed.
James is a fast driver, became blind, and couldn’t handle being driven
James has a way of speaking for the poor using himself (Honorable Poor man)
James may not have given us 8-sq meals in a day, but we had 3.
James gave people reasons to laugh; we had it as wash-down after dinner
James recently has been said to be poor. We think this is very disrespectful!
Hold-0n! James are you really dead?
“I think I’ll like to relax now”
