I am so sorry for your loss. James and I was in National Guard at same time and then we both worked for Warren Petroleum at Monument plant. I always liked James in what ever we did. He was a great guy to be around.

I am so sorry for you and your families loss. This is a very sad and trying time for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I still find myself trying to accept the fact that Steve is gone. At least we know that James and Steve are having a happy reunion in heaven !
