In August 2013 we had the honor to meet with James, affectionately known as Carlisle. A faithful servant of God, he was a man of great respect. He greatest wish for his children, Karmen (7) and James (22), was that they respect the Lord and others; this was a recurrent theme throughout our initial meeting. He had a great fondness for cooking and gardening. This love for food and flora were captured in cutting boards with his famous family favorite Turkey Recipe, Gardening Books, a bracelet made for Karmen from the favorite Hibiscus plant and a garden rock for James with a simple, but thoughtful quote from Carlisle. Thumbprint charms were made with words of love and to note his love for Christmas, his favorite holiday, gifts were chosen for the future.
James was called home to be with his Savior on September 19, 2013. Please keep his family in your prayers.
