Jerita & Family, we’re so deeply sorry for the earthly loss of James but we stand firmly with you in celebration of his heavenly homecoming. What a great celebration that surely was. You and James made us feel so welcome, wanted and loved from the very first Wednesday we served at Reclaimed. I will definitely miss his warm smile and gentle presence so very much!
