    James was such a cornerstone to me and my family, especially when my Kenny passed away. He always seemed to just know when I needed a friend to talk to and he would just call. I’m so glad he had these past few years with you and your family. I know he was so happy. I’ll miss him so much. Thank you for being his best friend.

    my sincere condolences – you don’t know me as we have never met but I hired Jim at Whayne Supply Company and he worked for me the entire 16 years before he came in one day , said he wanted to take advantage of the early retirement as he was moving ” up north” to be with his wife — Jim was an excellent employee , a good person all around. Really sorry to read of his passing. Chris Fultz
