James was the type of young man that became your friend the first time you met him.He became my friend whenAudre Perry resided there in her last years. When I would visit with him I would always ask him if he was still the Mayor of the nursing home would just smile and say yea.RIP my friend.

James was like our brother at Westmoreland Care & Rehab Center. Anyone who came always remembered him and looked for him when they'd come back to visit. We love all our elders but James will always hold a special place in our hearts. I can only imagine how fast he's running in his new body up there in heaven. We love you James and thank you for teaching us that no matter what happens to us in life, we can still be kind and loving toward those around us. ❤️

I did not know James, but from the memories shared by family and friends it’s obvious that he was very special and loved by many. Dealing with the death of a loved one is so very hard to do. I hope you find comfort in God’s promise to restore our dead loved ones to life here on the earth, never having to say goodbye again. Through God's Kingdom, Jesus will make this earth the problem-free paradise that his Father intended it to be. Until that time let your memories take you back and make you smile, let prayer bring you peace and comfort, and the support from your family and friends help you through this very difficult time.- Matthew 6:9-10; Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29

I sure loved James. He always took the time to know and care about each person he met. I had him as a patient for several years and he was more like one of my children. I'm thankful your not hurting anymore. Fly high My Friend! ❤️
