Memories of James
Jimmy, I didn't know you but I heard from a girl who knew your sister Linda Marie, that they were best friends. She wanted to write but didn't know what to say, so I thought I would do it for her. She said you were such a good boy. I know you are in heaven with my sister and your sister.
    -- (Dolores Labuda, Friend)
Jimmy, I really wish there was a time I could have met you. I am your niece, Linda's daughter. After this tragedy, Linda spent her whole life missing you. She said many wonderful things about you and wished that your life hadn't been taken from you at such a young age. Linda passed away in January 2007 from cancer. During her last few days she commented on how she couldn't wait to see you again. We placed a picture of you in her coffin.
