    James, you were my only brother-in-law. I wanted so badly to see you to say goodbye, but couldn’t. I will not say goodbye. I will just say “see you later.” Rest in Peace.

    Mr. Gibbs, you rest now. I am so glad I got to see you and give you a hug not too long ago 🙂 That was meant to be. I will pray that God is with your family and your sweet wife during this transition you’ve taken.
