"Jesus said in John 15:13 "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
I first met James when He worked at Office Max in State College,PA. Some of the things I remember most was his warm smile, funny laugh, Doc Martin shoes and his love for hunting and fishing. If I knew his life was going to be so short I would have let him beat me in raquetball...maybe. His life was too short, but I'm glad I got to know him and I thank God for all the good memories of him. Thanks James!
I hope to see you again because of what Jesus did for us on the cross.

Your buddy Dan Witherite
State College, PA."
