I didn't want to repeat the memorial message (above) for James. It caught my attention how James loved Gospel Music. I remember going to big Gospel concerts all over the U.S., especially the big one down in Bonifay, Florida -- where the biggest Gospel Music singers performed. I hope James Dean felt comfort in the words and sounds. May he rest in peace.

James was a friend of mine all through high school. We lost touch with each other after graduation. He could be a funny and crazy guy when he wanted to be but a good friend always.
