At an early age, he sought God’s direction and guidance, and joined the Union Missionary Baptist Church in Barnwell, SC, where he served on the Deacon Board.  He loved to sing, and sang faithfully with “The Chosen Ones”, until his health began to fail.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. May God continue to order our step as we continue on this journey so that one day we too can go home to live with the Lord as James has.

May God Continue to keep us as a Family in His Care. Much Love, Family.
