James was one of the most compassionate people you will ever meet. His love and kindness touched so many lives, helping them feel better in any situation. He endured so many stays at the hospital and doctors’ offices, trials and tribulations but kept a positive attitude and big smile on his face even in the midst of physical suffering.

James enjoyed his employment with H.E.B., Cafe Sales Lead, prior to his illness. He enjoyed movies and playing the slot machines. He had a great joy spending time with his family and especially watching his niece Chloe and cousins Jacob, Alex and Tyler grow up.

With deapest condolences to your family and friends. May the Peace of our Lord be with you during these trying times and always.

Message from Thu, 01/19/2017

For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.
2 Corinthians 5:1
God still has a purpose for bringing you to earth, Your family will grieve, who knows for how long? But I know they will look back on your life with nothing but joy because you are still the twinkle in their eyes and the putter in hearts.Your journey on earth is still not over because you have left some many finger prints where ever you went. I pray for your family that they have peace knowing that your are not physically with them but your love will always be.
