    I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. may GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I only heard today. I remember him from the time when he rented videos from me until the last few years when he patiently helped me at Ashby’s. He was an exemplary young man. A pleasure always. I cannot give enough words to how highly I have thought of him over the years.
    My sincere prayers are with you all. For your comfort.

    We can express how sorrowful we are to hear of the passing of JR. Our minds have returned to the days he would run the halls and grounds at Howell First Baptist Church as a little tike. We will be praying for all of you in the days that follow.

    To the Family. SO sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that James has the prospect of being resurrected (in the flesh) to Paradise Earth as God has promised. The vast majority will have everlasting life here on earth. God’s Kingdom will do this under the Rulership of Jesus Christ. READ John 5:28, 29, Job 14:14, 15 and Revelation 21:2-4
