I want to thank everyone for coming today.

James was/is/will always be my son.  I was the first person James ever saw and I was the last.

I changed his diapers, taught him to ride a bike, and how to cook a steak.  I was there through the highs and lows.

James had been fighting the darkness for many years and no one, no matter their expertise can truly know another person’s mind.  James was a dazzling light often under the lid of depression.  But, when the light shone through, it was breathtaking.

James was a kind person that would help anyone, he never harmed anyone, he had many friends.  A lot of these friends were people he never met in person, but All were his loyal friends.

I hugged my son every day and told him I loved him, even though he would turn his head and pretend it annoyed him.

Many events of loss came into James short life, people and pets.  Kitty his cat was dear to him and when James was younger, Kitty would always come in the house at James’ bedtime to go straight to his room and lay with him until he fell asleep.

What could we have done?  What did we miss? Who’s fault is James’ death?  No One’s, not even James.  I want no one to blame themselves.  The light of James life still shines, still dazzles.  I still tell him I love him.

I will see James again and he’ll grin and we’ll hug and I’ll tell him I love him.  But this time he’ll say to me, come and see Dad, I want to show you the glory of the Kingdom of Heaven.

James is now free of the darkness and knows only the light.

James was/is/and will always be my son.
