    James was a God fearing man who loved his Lord. Jamie reminded me of Job in the bible. Jamie was a patient man who in the time I knew him would have given you the shirt off of his back! I did not have the privilege of knowing Jamie for many years, but as Job I saw him sit patiently and wait for his Lord to come and take him home and that He did. Suffer no more my brother for you’re in your mansion with GOD. Love Daryl psalms 23

  9. Donna Bland

    My sweet cousin Jamie I enjoyed our long talks on the phone . You were very knowledgeable in so many things. You quoted the Bible better than a preacher man. I remember having car trouble right up from your house. I called you. You were there in like 3 minutes. Letting me know always he had my back. We enjoyed the love of music 🎼 I together. I am a late owl. So was he. He would call me with a song he wrote or vice verse. I always took the time to pick up the phone. No matter what time he would call. I would always try to answer. Because he would answer me if I had needed him. That’s the kind of man he was💙. I love you Jamey. Rip sweet cousin
