A good man. Helped me in the kindness to my son with his son Jimmy. Always a beer and cheer on Halloween with Karen by his side. We were never close; that bond is shared by our sons and will be in memory for their lifetimes. Honor thy "Father". May all who read this; choose to make yourselves better to Kin, Family and Kind. God Bless you James, Thank You for being a part of ours Lives. God Speed and Blessing to you, family and friends.
