    Chari, I just read that your son passed away. So very sorry, he was so young. Was thinking if he was the boy whom you bought my old Cadillac for. Remember how excited and thrilled he was to get it. Pleas know I am thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers at this sad time. May good memories comfort you and help to ease your pain. Sending hugs your way, my friend.

    Chari, we are saddened to hear of James’ passing. He was a nice, polite young man who had quite a future ahead of him, but he was called home too soon. You, and your family, are in our thoughts and prayers.
