Hi son, on April 26 it will be 19 years since God called you home. It was a day that we will never forget. Seems like yesterday. It hurts as much today as it did then. Your brother would make you proud he's has followed in your footsteps. He wanted to finish what you started. He loves what he does. Please watch over him for us. He wants to get a motorcycle. Please talk him out of that. We couldn't handle that. We're very proud of him just like we were of you. Lil james has grown into a handsome young man. Love and miss you so much son. Till we meet again.
