my heart is hurting and i just do not have many words to say, for once. i am glad that he's finally free.

here are some of James' own words or verses he gave to me through letters many years ago that seem to be appropriate now:
"Remember to thank God for His Son, and every good and bad thing in your life."
"Psalm 62:8 - Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us."
"God is good, so love him."

and from his favorite Psalm:
"As for man, his days are like grass;
as a flower of the field so he flourishes.
When the wind has passed over it, it is no more,
and its place acknowledges it no longer.
But the lovingkindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him,
and his righteousness to children's children,
to those who keep His covenant and remember His precepts to do them."
-Psalm 103:15-18

I have no words, either. I wish I could have known him better.
