Ms. Clyde Price and family,

So sorry to hear about Mr. James. We enjoyed gettiing to know him when they help us while we were building our house! He and Melvin did a fantastic job. We also enjoyed meeting Ms. Clyde also, as they came fishing on our ponds. Larry injured his right hand at the silo on the dairy farm and had surgery on his hand and did not milk as long as he needed to and retired at 62! I worked on till almost 67 and retired then in Feb. 2013 and had a stroke in Dec. 2013, but do not have any paralysis, but have to walk with a walker! All our children are doing fine, Jeff has 3 girls, Mark has 2 boys and 1 girl, Beth has 1 girl and Amy can't have children. Back to Mr. James he was such a wonderful, good and humble man. He was a hard working man at home and for his church and will be missed by many. Please accept our apologies and please come see us. We will have you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
