I am truly sorry to hear of your son's passing. I had a daughter with the same illness, she was 25 with a 2 yr old daughter,she passed away Dec 28, 2013. It is very hard, I miss her smile every minute of the day. Hopefully knowing that your son is not fighting his demons everday and has found the peace he was so desperately looking for will give you and your family assurance that he's in a better place. It's all love and joy for James now that he is with God and his promise of no mare pain or sadness.

Mr. and Mrs. Deweese,

I am so sorry for your loss. James was a great friend to me, I went to my first school dance with James. I can't remember one time being around James and him being in a bad mood.

One of my favorite memories is being at your house and James pulling a plastic bin out from under his bed with a huge snake in it. He was hiding it from your Mrs. Deweese, I thought he was such a nut for keeping that snake under there. I also told him he was going to get in soooo much trouble if you found it under there.

Love and Hugs,

Melissa Frankovich

Randy, Ruth, and Anne,

I've been thinking a lot about the days when our girls played together and I would stop by your house. James always had the most unusual reptiles and impressed me with his knowledge of them at such a young age. I remember him as a happy little boy, with a loving and nurturing family. I can only imagine the loss you must feel. I pray that you can find some comfort in knowing that James is no longer suffering. -Brenda
