Linda I am truly sorry for your loss but happy James’ suffering is over. He was a great friend in high school. I can even remember delivering the Staunton leader to his house(hated those stairs). Take care . Richard

To My Good Ole Friend, Linda,
I was told about James’s passing this evening via mutual Facebook friends, and my first reaction was to breathe a sigh of relief. A calming relief for you, my dear friend, that you will be released from the bonds of being a full-time caretaker of your beloved husband. Now his Caretaker is our Almighty God and He has taken James in His arms and will comfort him for eternity. And God will also comfort you in this time of grief, dear Linda. I know that you will miss James terribly, as you should, and you need to take all the time you need to grieve in your own way. In the meantime, please promise me that you will reach out to all your friends who have offered to be there for you during this time. I only wish I were closer so that I could be of some comfort to you. I join all the others who are relieved that James suffers no more. When you get things settled and have had time to adjust to this overwhelming chapter in your life, I invite you to come to Charleston, SC, and we can spend some valuable time reminiscing and being a comfort to each other. I will contact you by phone in a day or so, and I will call you if by chance I get up that way any time soon. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. With sincere love, Jane
Just learned of your loss. Please accept my sincerest condolences. Anything one says at a time like this often seems so trite. Just believe James is finally at peace.
Know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
