James was one of my best friends through Grade School, Jr High and High School in Andrews, as well as my roommate at NTSU in Denton. We shared many great experiences and I have memories that will last for as long as I will live. His passing leaves a huge hole in my heart and he will be missed by many. My heart also goes out to Cindy as she stood beside him during his long illness. I will forever cherish James's friendship and will honor his legacy of a life well lived.
