You have my deepest condolences in your loss of James. From previous comments he seemed l ike a wonderful man very energetic and full of life. That's why death is such an enemy to all of us no matter how long we live it is always painful. Our loving Heavenly Father Jehovah knows the pain that we are in and wants to comfort us. The Bible Book of Revelation in chapter 21 verses 3 and 4 may bring you some comfort.

One of the best thanksgivings of my life was spent at James farm. It was nice to hang with the family explore the property and celebrate Brads retirement from the USAF. I was awesome to be a part of the family and get to shoot the bull about the Packers with James. Sorry for your loss Jansen’s he was a great man.
