The heavenly gate opened Sunday April 20,2014 to welcome James home. We cannot help the tears that fall-our hearts need time to grieve when earthly life has ended and James had to leave.Yet even in the saddest time we know our Savior lives, and we can trust completely in the promise that He gives- that in the glad reunion with the Lord our James wait to welcome us in joy with no more tears or pain beyond the gate.I know Dad (Hurley) and Frank was waiting to welcome him to his new home.Keeping you in our prayers.We love you Nellie,Tammy&Wayne,John&Courtney,Amber&Michael + Lindsey /Cooper

To Lana, I do not know what it is like to lose my "DAD" yet, so I can't say I know how you feel, but I can say that you will see him again in heaven and that is what gives us the peace that passes all understanding. I am praying for you and I love you like a sister.
