I remember one time when the kids thought they were brave and we dropped the kids off in your driveway and had them run up to your house on the dark. It was during this month.

Some most treasured memories of wonderful son

I have known James since he was a young kid. He is my best friend and half my life. Memories flood me and as I sit here thinking trying to figure out which memory to share with u. James was there for me at all my big life events. He was my biggest fan and he was my white knight always saving me from myself and others. I decided the only memory I'm willing to share is the wedding we went to together he kept stealing my drinks... he had bought me the most beautiful dress and we had a blast dancing. He always made me feel loved even when I didn't deserve it. Caroline Dan thank u for sharing ur amazing son with me thank u for raising such a great man I loved him and I love you. Rip James I miss u so very much

I remember playing Yugioh cards with him as a kid and wrestling/playing outside with him during recess.

Oh James... my heart hurts but I can only smile when I think of all the good memories! When you told us you were going to be a dad you were so excited and when we came to see JoJo in the hospital you couldnt wait to show him off! When I would cut your hair you ALWAYS made sure you tipped me way to much!!! Haha You will be missed by so many, James!! Give grandpa hugs for me and keep a close watch on all of us!! Love and miss ya Buddy! Brooke
