    I am so sorry for your loss, James and I only knew each other only for a short period we literally meet couple months. But in that short period we became close friends. He and I had certain connection and we had similar characters, miss him a lot wish we would have met earlier in the hope that I could have been a positive influence.

    One of my dearest moments with him was; he came over to my house just to hang out and bring Jade over so he could play with my youngest son. While I was repairing his mobile phone Jade and my son decided that they wanted to paint. He sat down with the two boys and started painting with them the happiness and calmness that we all had is something i will always remember.

    He was a great father, a good man and a true friend.

    I miss you James, Parker misses you but we hope you found peace we will always cherish the moments we had together.
