10 Condolences for James R. Webster

  • Why? Why? did you have to leave me to? We packed so many memories in out time back together. Who knew back in the 70’s we would ever get back together. These past couple years have meant so much to me. You came along when I thought I would never be able to love another man, God had other plans. Rest in Peace knowing you brought happiness to me once again. Love you Jimmy James

  • As I think about Peany ( My big brother) I will always remember how loving and thoughtful he was to me. Every year, he never forgot to mail me a Christmas card and a Birthday card. No matter how he was feeling, he could always muster up a smile. At the end of every phone conversation, we always told eachother ” I love you”. He leaves me with so many memories from my childhood, that make me laugh, shake my head and say…” he was something else”. I thank God for changing my brothers life and for the times we all spent together. I truly miss him.

    Your baby sister,
    Janice ( Jan)
