 Betty and family, Reva and I extend our sympathy to each of you. In memory of James, we will be making a donation to the McLean County Gideon Camp for the purchase of Bibles which I am sure he would appreciate. I am sorry that I can't be there today but I am battling a change of drugs for my diabetes and don't trust myself driving that far. Love to you David and Reva Sunn.

 From the very first time we met you Sis. Betty and Bro James, we felt such a special closeness and always looked forward to your visits to the Texas Hill Country and Rocky Community Church. We would love to have visited you and the Paducah Gospel Assembly in return but it had not come to pass. Bro. James' faith and steadfastness is a wonderful testimony to all. Our love and deepest sympathy to you and all of the family from Porter and Juneth Watson and our family.

 What a blessing God gave to all who came to know this child of His. The Fruit of His Spirit.. love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, and more, so brightly shown in James Morgan. And, especially kindness. May God teach us well, as He did James. God rest and hold his soul and comfort his precious family. Mary and Tom
