    Oh this breaks my heart. James was such a wonderful person, father and friend. I will always value our time working together and will miss those honks just to let me know he is passing by my house on the way to the doctor’s office. My thoughts are withTammy and bean. He will be missed. If I didn’t have covid at the moment, I would be at his wake and I hate that I can’t be. You fought a good hard fight James. You really will be missed.
