Memories Timeline


  1. Uncle James I will always remember how smooth you were and all the times I borrowed your favorite Wrigley's Spearmint gum.

    I know you knew it and always made sure you left me a slice. Our own little thing.

    You were brave to the very end and left us with a wonderful story to remember you by.

    Take your rest, well done!

  2. To the family, I am praying for peace and strength as you go through this journey. I will continue to keep the families in my prayers. From the class of 1973, he is gone from where we can see, but in our hearts is where he'll always be.

  3. I submit my deepest sympathy to the Jones family. James and I were classmates. I'm so sorry for your loss. I pray God gives you comfort and strength.
