  2. I’m so sorry to hear about James passing. He was a great friend growing up and will truly be missed. He was one of the few that could always bring a smile to your face. We had a many, many years of good times and endless laughter together. I’m saddened not knowing about this until today. It was brought to my attention by an old high school friend that James and I both knew and grew up with. I can only hope time helps in the healing process of loosing such a wonderful guy.
