There isn't sufficient room to talk about my Uncle James! Among his many contributions to this life, I can honestly say he was the best friend a widow woman could have.

Uncle James never really retired from working, he just changed areas of expertise. James lived in Bacliff Texas and worked for Brown and Root as an operator. After retirement, he moved to Epps Louisiana. He was an avid gardener and took great pleasure in providing for all those in need, especially the widows and less fortunate.

Our family would give to Uncle James, thinking HE WAS IN NEED, only to discover a needy family was blessed by Uncle James !!

He was the most giving person I've ever met and one of the funniest. He absolutely lived life to the fullest.

Although he had no biological children, we all felt like we belonged to him.

More about Uncle James from other family memebers..to be continued !
