JT was the kind of friend that could tease you , aggravate you to your last nerve and you loved him anyway. He will certainly be missed coming in our door shouting his arrival but he will always live in our hearts. Pray James that you and Linda are once again reunited and both are at peace. Until we meet again our love goes with you.

Adele and Benny Copeland

Thomas, Jodi, Jamie - I did not know your father for very long but I loved him from the first moment I met him. He was jovial and funny and very entertaining. What I loved best was that he treated me like family, despite the short timeframe that I spent with him. For your family and everyone else whose heart aches over the loss of your father, I am praying for peace and healing.

Adela Mitchell

JT was a good fellow golfer who will be missed by all the guys at the golf course. I enjoyed a few games over the years with him myself. Prayers are with the family.

James was one of the best Dad's on the planet. His love for his children and grandchildren shined thru. He was a funny man, always smiling and had his loved ones first and foremost in his heart. Rest peacefully thru eternity with Linda now and keep watch over your loved ones.

I am so sorry for your loss but I am glad he was able to come to our "Clark" reunions and I got to meet him then. I have met many relatives that I never new until recent years once I started to work on family history and this family was the earliest family members that I have located. I didn't know about Addie until I went to the Spring Hill Church memorial last year -sorry I missed that. I will be praying for your family - please keep in touch.

J. T. Had not been a friend of ours until recently. He was one of a kind. We met him and Ms Pauline at Corapeake Country Restaurant with my brothers “The Winslow’s ”. He loved our chocolate and lemon cakes and birthday celebrations and was adopted as a WINSLOW. He loved to joke and carry on. May the lord bless his family at this time.

Minnie and Ray Smith

JT was a really good friend and golfing buddy and as somebody earlier mentioned a pain in the ass teaser but still loved playing with him despite him! He will be sorely missed with his jokes and silliness! SGC will not be the same without him!!!
