R.I. P. Cuz, you are loved and will be greatly missed!
Our Angel James
I still can’t believe
You are really gone
I know I should take time to grieve
Because from this world you have moved on
God sent his angels to call
Your time here is done
Forgive me while I hide and bawl
And remember our times of fun.
Our memories will bring us peace
It’s time for you to fly
Your pain has now ceased
Heaven is waiting way up high
Spread your wings
Fly angel James
The trumpet sings
No more earthly pains.
As we say goodbye
From family and and friends
James, our special guy
Our love with you we send.
