I was sadden to hear of the passing of our beloved one. James, was a faithful member serving on the Male Chorus. We will miss his dedication and supportive manner. He was such an inspiration to me and help me realize that its all about singing for the Lord than for personal gain. James, you will never be forgotten. Rest on my Brother, Sleep on my Brother, for God has his arms wrapped completely around you. Until, we meet again.
Your Male Chorus Member,
Gregory O. Johnson
