Growing up we went to the 8:30 mass at Holy Cross Church every Sunday, and mass wasn't officially over for us until we went down the side isle and were greeted by James with his big smile and firm handshake, after which he would hold out the bulletin for us, then playfully yank it back when we would go to grab it, which would make his smile ever wider....

I'm so sorry for your loss. James had an infectious laugh and smile! He loved children and I thank him for making such an impact on my young sons life in the time he knew him. James was lucky to have such a loving, caring, compassionate and fun family to share his time with. You will always remain in our thoughts and prayers. James could not have had people to care for and live him like the family he had! Rest In Peace James and you have a special place in our heart ❤.

So sorry to hear of the passing of James he was in our lives for a short period of time but made such a large impact with his outgoing personality. James immediately fit into our Special Olympics family once joining the Whitman Area Softball & Soccer teams, James fit in from day one and all the other kids took to him immediately, he was a wonderful teammate and person and will be greatly missed, I will forever remember yelling James go to the net at our soccer tournaments! Deepest Sorrow to all family members.
