Here it is soon to be 2019 and the pain of your passing still lingers. James was a security Officer at my wedding in August 1992. As usual he did an excellent job! I also went to his funeral and gave his wife a large photo of him for remembrance.
He will never be forgotten but he will always be missed.
If I can have his wife's address,I will send her a smaller portrait of James.
Blessings of comfort and healing to all who loved him.
