    I always called him “Uncle James” but in truth he was my cousin. I will always miss him.

    Mr. James will be missed, he attended everything that went on in Biscoe, no matter how he felt he was there to support whatever. I grew up down the road from their house and he was always out in the garden or on the porch nearly every time I went by. Prayers for his family and may GOD comfort you as only HE can.
