I so loved this man and his family. He was our first pastor at Parker’s Chapel First Baptist Church. Nell, Christy and Vance my prayers are with you during this tome and the coming weeks. I know he’s already met the Master face to face and heard “well done thy good and faithful servant”. I know he can’t see Heaven fast enough and there is no quarantine there, so he’s busy taking it all in and looking for loved ones that have gone on before him. Love to you, Bobbie McDaniel.

Nell, I’m so sorry for your loss. James was a great man. I learned a lot from him. One thing that comes to mind is y’all where going to be gone a few days and he ask me to feed his dog (Pug) for him. I said sure I would no problem then here it came he said I would have to feed him with a spoon. I thought the man had lost his mind. But no he hadn’t. I feed that dog with a spoon. Lol. We had a lot of good times together. Sorry we kind of lost track with y’all over the last few years. But I guess where life takes us. I never forgot y’all always thinking about the good times we shared. May God be with you Nell. Cristy and Van take care of your mom. She is going to need you now. Love all of you.

Our family love James Grafton and his family. I remember when he went to get training for the ministry. My parents admired his willingness to make a career change as an adult and pursue the work he loved. Thankful I knew him!
