James and I were close friends when we were in elementary school. I remember the halloween parties at his house when we were younger. We always had such a fun time. James was always the life of the party. May his memory live on through everyone! RIP James, may you live eternally in peace!

It’s been so long since my family has seen James but this was the first family we knew when we moved to PA and James took the responsibility of making sure my sister had a ride back and forth to school so my dad can continue to work in NY with no worries. He was a blessing. May this family find the peace they need

My memories of James were always good ones, especially as kids when we were all so close. Though we may have grown apart as adults going on our own paths, I look back fondly on the fun we'd all have at family get togethers, sitting at the kids table at holidays at the "elegant restaurant", and visiting when we lived down the road. My favorite photo is one of James and my brother both wearing Mr. Potatohead glasses. Love and miss you very much, Cuz.
