Our Friend James, We met James a few years ago at a men conference At The Greater Allen Cathedral of N.Y. and developed a real meaning full relationship. After that we found out that we attended the same service 7AM After service we would talk about the sermon and the current events,then go downstairs with our wife's and have breakfast. James was a quiet but strong man,who love The Lord Wife ,Family sports and was very supported of The Civil Rights Movement. He was a Great Man. James will truly be missed by US and by others. Love You

I met James approximately 22 years ago at Gimbels Dept store at 34th Street in New York City. From that moment I admired his professionalism. Following that encounter a few later later we met again at Allen Church and remained friends, which then included Eddie and Jimmy. We surely did enjoy having breakfast together after church. He touched many lives along the way, giving undivided attention and love, making you feel like you were the only one in his life at that moment in time. His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds he interacted with as well as those he had touched but never met. Always faithful, always committed until we meet again.
