James walked with God. He wouldn’t want you to mourn your loss, but to celebrate his gain. He spent the better part of his life preparing for his departure and would want you to remember his smile, his laugh, and all-around good nature.
We will forever remember his kind, gentle spirit expressed not only to his family, but anyone he met.
“And I thank God for the Lighthouse, I owe my life to him, for Jesus is the Lighthouse, and from the rocks of sin, he has shown his light around me, that I might clearly see, that if it wasn’t for the Lighthouse, tell me where would this ship be?”
