    Mike and Scottie,
    I was surprised and saddened to see this. It wasn’t until after the service that I found out. Please know that I am so sorry and am in prayer for you and the rest of your family.

    Somewhere along the way you became “James” but you’ll always be “Jamie” to us. We are so sad, Jamie, and we pray that Jesus is wrapping His arms around you.

    You meant so much to this family, you were there for everyone when Grandma and Grandpa passed, when the trailer burnt down. You made a special trip to the store just to buy me shoes just so I could walk through the house, which I have called my “Cooter shoes” since you gave me them. Our boys adored you. We are going to miss your goofy self! Fly high Cooter 💕

    UNCLE MAMES, as I would say you’ll love forever on in our hearts. There’s not a thing you couldn’t fix. Thank you for all the wet Willys and for always bringing the craziness with you all the time. You carried yourself so well and full of life. I’ll always remember the happy times you gave us all always kept the family on their toes. Thank you for giving me crazy memories and thank you for sharing the fourth with me. I’ll make sure to be drinking Budweiser and Peppermint schnapps. Though I am not as crazy as you were I’ll always hold your legacy in my memories you’re an awesome uncle I love you dearly. I’ll make sure to be strong for you because i know you’d be shrugging my shoulder to carry myself and love as hard as you did. I’ll never let you go . ❤️🥺🤟
