    So sorry for your loss. I know you have been through a lot and maybe now you can have piece of mind that James is resting now.

    You were the best of mothers and loved him and nurtured him until the end. You know he’s now at rest.

    Just letting you know, Ellen, that I am thinking about you, and hoping you have found peace in knowing that Jamie is doing just fine in his new home. The day will come when you will get to see him again. Until then, cherish the memories and keep on living. That’s what Jamie would want you to do. God bless you!

    I knew James (we knew him as Jamie) from the music scene in Brunswick. He was always a character and full of life. He will always be remembered here by everybody from back in the day. Rest easy bro.
