James was a member at our Church, Dixie Freedom Baptist. He had recently came back into fellowship at Dixie and would often say..."I am at home now". I was able to sit beside him Sunday night (09/06/2020) and he sang a song "Walk around me Jesus". What a blessing it was to hear him sing and play his drums. Our Church was the better with him being a member, a faithful member also. There was an empty place last night at Church which was Wednesday night and we all miss you James. I am a better person for knowing you, we are a better Church congregation for you being a part of Dixie Freedom Baptist. My friend, You are at "HOME" now... To be absent from the body is the be present with the Lord. We will see you once again... Love you.. (joe duncan
