  1. We loved James! His energy and excitement for life were contagious. He was always so friendly and welcoming. He let his light shine for Jesus and he cared about people. We need to follow his example. See you on the other side when we see our Lord and Savior. Pastor Bill & Pam Wyatt

  2. I would like to leave this condolence to the family and friends of James whom I had the pleasure of meeting in Munising the night before his passing. I have to pleasantly agree with describing him as someone who listened to someone else tell their story. By the time he and his friends left I knew alot about him and he knew alot about me. It’s rare that someone you know so little makes such an impact in your life. God Bless you James. You will truly be missed.

  3. I just read about James passing away. He was such an amazing young man. He did a ton of work for me when I had a flood in my downstairs. I loved that he listened to Christian music the entire time he was working. I was so impressed by his work ethic and his Love of God. We had a few nice long talks. My prayers go out to his family. I know that this young man has a very special place in heaven.
