James was always there to help me through out the 40 years of knowing him he would come put oil in my almost empty furnace late at nightAfter he got off work before he would go home. when my children and I were in bed to keep us from freezing .He took me and or my children to the Dr. and store many times before I got a driver’s license. He had the biggest heart I’ve ever known. He will be so missed. I’m so so so sorry.
