  1. Dear Family,Uncle James was one of greatest men I knew. I loved it when we got to see him at the family reunions in Tennessee, or other family events. He will sadly missed by all who knew him, but he received his eternal reward. God bless, we are praying for you.

    I will personnelly miss Mr. Hand. He was a faithful member of the Brotherhood Sunday School Class and a wonderful father figure to many of us who knew him well. We will miss his firm direction and his humorious stories that always taught us something.
