To the Family,
My prayers and though are with all. I am sorry to hear about James passing. It bad when we loss contact off our kin people. I can remember all when we were little. We didn't get to see each other that much. Mary, you and one sister came to our reunion the last time we had it. I will be praying for all. Love a cousin JoAnn Sanford Okelley.
