  2. Man does this sting my heart brother. Rest easy big bro, save a spot for me up there.

  3. Deeply sorry for the family he left behind. Jamie is one amazing loveing and caring man. The one I looked up to as a teen and no matter what he had my back. Always there to pick someone up when needed. He would give the clothes off his back to anyone in need. I’ll forever be thankful to hold the memory of your time you blessed us all with in life. I’ll be missin you cousin.

  4. James, I was happy to have given the chance to have met you.
    The time that we shared was not a lot of time, but the time was enough to know that you were true with your heart as you were with how you perceived yourself, others, the struggles and the accomplishments they we all have while on this earthly bound journey.
    I will pray the peace that you have will be your forever comfort.

  5. James,
    My heart is torn by this unexpected news. You were so young and so full of life. You had so much potential to do so many great things in life. You were my best friend. I dont even know what else to say other than you will always be with me in my heart and my mind.

  6. Jamie fly high young man. May you forever R. I. P. And GODSPEED to you. Watch over your precious little boy.
    You have left foot prints in many many people’s hearts, souls, and memories. Gone far too soon but never forgotten.
    My deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to Jamie’s friends and family.

Words cannot express the pain I feel in my heart for the entire family. RIP to one of the most kind hearted friends I’ve ever had. I love you James.

  16. To the family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Losing someone that means so much to you is very difficult. May the words at Revelation 21:4, and John 5:28,29 as God promises to soon do away with all sickness and death and reunite you together again. Until then may you cherish the many memories you shared together as they too can be a source of comfort.

  17. Jamie I miss you bro, you helped me out when nobody else could, we had a hell of a lot of fun together. I’ll always remember doing your first tattoo. You took it like a champ

  18. This is the first I have read these messages.
    I spend most mornings crying and here I am again, bawling at work.

    My brother is an amazing man, he should be here today. He should be with each of us. It hurts so bad reading these messages. He had his demons, his battles, his pain. All I can hope, is he has found peace. My hearts heavy, every day of my life. Its like a gray cloud covering my soul, its unexplainable and doesn’t go away. I love you so much Jamie, I wish you were here. I wish I could hear your voice again, saying “love you kiddo”. Until I see you again …. love, your baby sister <3

  19. forever in my thoughts, i hope you are at peace now, dang buddie, i cant believe your really gone. 🙁 much love jamie
