    testimony…… he will be missed very much. Our prayers and thoughts are for you and the rest of the family. He has
    left us many many precious memories of all the times we gathered to fellowship at Grandma Kirby’s. He was always such a sweet man…..we will miss his presence.

    Miss Vivian, Ronnie, & Donna,

    You have my deepest sympathies on the loss of your husband and father, Mr. James. I remember with great fondness the times spent growing up in West Nashville on Meadowcrest Lane & Oakmont Circle and my friendship with Ronnie. Mr. James was always so kind to me, and I will forever remember his smiling face and gentle disposition.
