James was among a handful of kids who began school. And graduated together. He and Mark just sent err med to always be near. Both were very good friends and I have always loved both. I am so sorry for his family and wished you could have had him with you a lot longer..Your family will be in our prayers.

The love that was shown by you is irreplaceable, your sense of humor and your smile. Mr East you will really be missed by the Walker family, I wish I could have spent more time in your presence, drinking coffee, laughing and enjoying each other’s company. You were really God fearing and lead with great leadership. You open your doors to my family many times when we came to visit, I can’t wait to see you beyond the heaven gates.

James was the most kind & loving man. He opened his home to my family years ago for a Thanksgiving getaway. He raised an incredible man of God & our best friend! We’re forever grateful for him. Love the legacy he has left behind & so many blessed, following in his footsteps. Gone, but never forgotten. We’ll meet you at the gates!
