    James had a wonderful personality and always had a smile on his face whenever I saw him. Visited with him often at Lincoln Care Center these past several years. May God Bless and Comfort you in your loss

    I am so sorry about the passing of James. He was one fine man! I always enjoyed talking to him and playing dominoes with him and Roberta. I told Maddie, my granddaughter that he had died and she cried. She loved him. God has a new angel!
    Blessed be,
    Betty Lou
