Happy Easter James! We had a great time playing games with the kids and playing jokes. Our hito helps hide the eggs now lol.... We're blessed to have the son we have James. I know you know. Its milestones you're not physically here for that still hurt. He's looking forward to hunting. I wish you were taking him. You two would've had so much. He's looking like you more and more James. Expressions, mannerisms.... its bitter sweet. Life roles on, but you're always with us in heart. Memorial is around the corner and were all looking forward to new blessed memories. We love you, we miss you, and always you are part of our lives. Continue to help me guide our shining light! Its almost time for him to fly!

Love

Our blessing is 16 yrs old today James. Its bitter sweet cuz I can only imagine what you'd been doing w him at this point in his life. The hunting trips, ball games, crazy jokes, driving experiences, girl talk, and im sure some rule breaking lol...well at least bending. You both missed out on the greatness of having one another around. Im proud of who he is inside & out. You two would probably debate things all year lol....Jesse-James has been loved by the best. Good people who live by example and have always praised his qualities and encouraged him when he's had challenges in his path. While he's still young, he's wise beyond his years. Much like yourself. He is very insightful, kind, funny, loving, and the best friend anyone could hope for. I know he will make mistakes, at times disappoint, but he is confident enough to acknowledge his mistakes and fix or accept the consequences. Hes so tall now. I have to look up into his beautiful green eyes. I can picture you guys walking out of the house and him towering over you lol....youdve had a hay day joking around w him. We would look like midgets standing next to him lol....he'd tell you....hey dad, JUNGLE GYM!!!! We are blessed to have my family and your dad Donnie & Carol, grandpa don & grandma Irene, all your aunts uncles and cousins who love our boy. I know Dylan is watching over him like you do. As he blows out his candles and makes his wish, I know you're always a part of it. Im blessed in many ways James. But having you in my life and our son Jesse-James

Happy birthday Marine!
Im sure you're smiling from ear to ear!. I know you have many of your brothers w you this year. As sad as it is. But I remember all of our blessed memories of fun times, struggling & worried times, and our perseverance. You made me strong too,& Jesse-James knows alot about how you thought about things in many ways. He's very insightful. I know you're with us James. I still feel you. We miss and love you always. Our hitos on to new journeys ahead. He's awesome! But I know you know. XOXO

Happy 41st birthday in heaven James.
I miss you. Always will. Ill never forget your smile, the sound of your voice and laughter. The love you had for everyone. The look of love and pride when youd look at Jesse-James. The world is much less of a wonderful place cause you're not in it with us. You're forever missed and loved. Our boys taller than you now. Smart, and has your charm and silly sense of humor. Im truly blessed to have him as mine. Thank you James for your love and support when I needed it most. I always carry you w me, always will!

Love Veronica

Its another beautiful morning w plans to get out for the day. But today had you written on it since the sun came up. Thoughts of you always surround me, but today I feel like you're closer somehow. I know I wish you were here to hang w our boy. No doubt you'd have been inseparable.....its hurts to know in my heart what wouldve been between you two....crazy stunts and buddies til the end. I wish you were here in person to celebrate his victories. Give direction and guidance. But mostly, just for him to feel the love in the shake of your hand, or a hug or pat on the back for a job well done. He's definitely finding his way...what a journey we have ahead...i believe in my heart youre watching, shield him from harm and help me guide him to whatever greatness awaits him I in this great big world. Its almost time for him to fly James....love & miss you always

Im glad you insisted we buy our ski gear on our last trip to Denver to see grandma n grandpa. Your gear RIGHTFULLY always belonged to him. He looks awesome in his dads Spider gear!...He's grown so much....i wish you were here to wrestle with him, joke around, tease him, give advice n direction like I can picture you doing.

James,
As you know it's a bright sunny beautiful day out today. The clock ticks and the world continues to turn. But for some, the tick tock and the hustle and bustle of the regular world is haulted. We wish today wouldn't have been forever changed so many painful years ago. We miss your smile, laughter, friendship. Our son misses a father he barely had the chance to meet and only got to feel his hugs n kisses for a short time. Our son Jesse-James is no longer a small boy yearning for you to come back and play w him. .Jesse-James is now a young man I am proud to say is ours! He is intelligent begond his years in mind and spirit. He is so loving and cares so deeply for others. When he's unsure of things, he asks what I think you'd tell him to do...he's a teenager now. Ready to envision his future and what paths to travel. He's got large boots to fill James. Our expectations are great...i know you watch over him...hes so wonderful huh?...hes has so many of your characteristics. His stance, expressions. Even when he sleeps his face looks like yours. His hands...so perfectly you. He's quite the runner these days. His best year yet with the Law enforcement Tourch Run. He kicked butt! Moms always proud. My heart aches when I remember how you left us. My heart is heavy. I wish you couldve stayed with us. No matter what path my life takes James, you will always be a priority in Jesse-James life. He wants to make us proud always. He is the sunshine in the world you left behind and we love you and him with all our hearts...i still feel you with me James...we love & miss you greatly. That love flows through my veins...always will. Until we meet again, continue to watch over us...

Love,
Veronica, Jesse James, Sierra& family.

Happy Veterans day! We love and miss ya James! Our hito has your sparkle in his eyes and that heart stopping smile...his sense of humor is awsome...you'd be laughing your butt off with some of the silly things he comes up with...You guys would be out throwing the football around and he'd be trying hard to out run you...lol. you'd probably both be sinking in the pool like rocks together too...your Marine Bros know what I'm talking about too..lol. today, just know that your loved ones know just how much you gave up and how much you sacrificed while on this earth with us as well as in what you left behind when you went to work to do the job you loved that night....always in my heart James...always will be.. love Veronica

Uncle James,
Good Morning! I woke up early today and the first thing I thought of was you I can hear the birds outside singing dont ask me why but it made me think of you. Jesse-James just graduated from 6th grade he's so great and funny I'm so proud of him I couldn't make it to the ceremony but I'm still very proud of him as I know you are too! Anyway I love you with all of my heart and think of you always!

Uncle James,
Wow we're back Red River was great! I came home and watched an old video of my third birthday and you walked through the door and it broke my heart to know that I'm not going to see that ever again. We all had a great time we all thought about you!!! I could stop crying when I watched the video to think I was so young back then and I was shy if I would have known what was going to happen I would have interacted more with you. To see all of my loved ones that passed away on tape made me break out in to tears but god takes people for a reason and he figured it was your time and now I can't wait to see all of you !!! I love you !
