He loves you all and little James, and for that reason, we believe it is truly well with his precious little soul. May you be comforted by God’s divine Holy Spirit, during this devastating loss. And may God’s goodness illuminate and completely fill your hearts with His light and healing love.

  • We are thinking about all of you during this extraordinarily difficult time. We are also praying for peace and understanding and are so very sorry for your loss. The slideshow is a wonderful representation of James. He usually had a smile on his face. Let us know if you need anything we can help with.

    Lifting your family up in prayer during this time of loss. Your son always had a sweet smile on his face when I I saw him at FSS. He will be terribly missed by all.

    My heart breaks to think that sweet James won’t be returning to school with us next week. I always enjoyed getting to talk to him when I saw him in the hallways or on the playground. His smile was contagious, and I so loved seeing him and Taylor walking together and talking at recess. I am sure those were some deep conversations. Sending up prayers for your family as you walk through the days to come.
