It is hard for me to imagine never hugging James again.
It is a reminder to me of how precious every moment is and how stunningly beautiful our simple interactions were.
My love and prayers for Amanda and family. Please come see us at TJs.

Hello. My name is Addison Thorne and I am 13 years old. I met James through NES & the OCC. A special memory I have of James is him sitting on the floor in the hallway, outside of Kids Club..... he had his monkey, and when he saw me his face lit up and he was waving and smiling at me saying "Hello" He also sweetly approached me at the OCC pool, or on the porch offering to read me a book. He also did this to my mom. He was a very sweet and special guy. I'm very sad to hear about this tragic loss. My family is also very sad, and we are praying for you all during this extremely painful time. Addison Thorne & family
