    I am so sorry to read of the passing of my childhood friend James Henry, where we attended church together at Mann Community Church of God together. He still looked like the person I knew. We were also related. My sincere sympathy to his wife and family. Praying for your comfort.

    Charolette, I am so sorry to hear of James passing. It was a blessing having the two of you for neighbors in Wolfforth. I’m sorry I won’t be at the visitation. I am living in Coppell now. Pat Weatherly

  4. Mrs. Smith, I am sorry I just found this tonight and missed the celebration of life. I enjoyed the short time I was able to get to know Mr. Smith. I enjoyed the short visits with him in the neighborhood and his knowledge about so much. I wish we had more time to visit. He was such a great friend.

    God Bless you.

  5. Rosemary, James spoke well of you and I do remember he called you a friend as well as a relative

  6. Pat, I asked about you and Lee Ann told me that you had move closer to family. You know the feeling of loss I know. Thank you so much.

  7. Thank you Richard for explaining. I sent you a message, but it was probably from my phone. You were the first person James wanted to know when he went to the hospital. He called you friend. By the way 3 of the songs in the video is James singing. He was quite a singer that few out here in Lubbock know.
