    I met James when I was 13 in 1981. He was a Sr. In high school. We met at church camp. I have often thought of him and wondered what happened to him. I hope he had a happy life. I am saddened to hear of his passing. He was such a sweet guy.

    Hilda, I am truly sorry to hear about James. I know you took good care of him for years and that you are
    going to miss him greatly. I found out late last night and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to you at this
    time. I am so sorry that I am unable to be with you at this time. My prayers are with you now and always.
    He is in the Lords hand now and isn’t suffering, for this you can be thankful. He will be there to meet you
    when you go home to the Lord.

    James was always the most loyal friend a person could have. I met him playing football at eastover estates in 1978 and we became friends instantly. He became a part of our family. He was like one of my brothers. I will miss James and friendship.

    We knew him over 34 years ago as his Pastor and Pastors wife. Estus always stood by his mother and Beverly. We have lots of fond memories of Estus and all the young people at Mt Olive Baptist Church. We pray Ms Hilda and family will be comforted by Our Heavenly Father and all their Christian friends. May God bless you. Bro Beasley and Mrs Teresa
