My condolences and prayers for the family. I remember James as an excellent PO. He was dedicated, honest and a person of integrity. I have always had utmost respect for James. I worked with James for quite a while during my 'stint' on the graveyard shift. We worked mainly the same district. I could always count on James as a backup officer or just a friend. I will always remember James as being a 'friend' and fellow PO. I am proud to have known James. I am very sorry to hear of his passing. God bless James & his family.
