  3. Charles House says:

    I remember James being there for Mother in her times of loss and always having the right words to say to help ease her pain, I can only wish I would be able to do the same for y’all. This is the hardest part of becoming the older generation. It is always hard to say goodby to a loved one, though they are no longer with us we will always be able to cherish the love and memories they have given us and in that way they will always live in our hearts and never be forgotten. We know we will see them again when we crossover and will celebrate in that reunion.

    May God’s love surround you in your time of need.
    Love Charlie & Donna

  6. I have the fondest memories of James and Bernice. Loved both of them very much, especially after W.C. and I were married. They took me under their wing and treated me no differently than their own children. They were good, good people and it was a blessing to have been part of the family. I apologize for not being able to be at the funeral, but want you to know that I love and miss you and will miss both your mom and dad. This is only temporary for we will all se each other again in the near future, until then God Bless and keep you, may He shine His light on you and bring you peace…..Aunt Jean

    P. S. I also have fond memories of my aunt and uncle, some of the best memories of my life were spent in Bogata with my family. I loved both of these people dearly and looked up to the both of them. Miss my cousins, and my condolences for your loss, but we will rejoice together when we all meet up yonder. Luv Eunice Mauldin….
