1. Copied from another forum.


    Its with great regret I type this note. I learned a little while ago that JamesB died this afternoon. I cant begin to express the complete sense of loss I am feeling for his family, friends and many forum friends. There are very few whole heartedly good people in the world. James was. He was a caring friend who always pitched in, helped out and went the extra mile to help those who knew him. I just cant put to words the sorrow I feel for losing him. He will be deeply missed.

    I don't have all the details, what I currently understand is that James had some type of breathing issues that flared up occasionally and this afternoon those breathing issues overtook him and he died before the paramedics could get there.

    Please pray for his family.

    As I receive more details, we will post those here. I know in the days, weeks and months to come we will want to remember all the good things James did + offer our love and support to his family.

    Extremely sad news to hear of a member passing away so suddenly. Never a good time, but the holidays don't make it any easier.

    Ronp, thanks for providing a link to his last thread.

    I did some back tracking through other forums and located the original post where he was well known and saw where he was alive this afternoon and actually posted there today.

    It seems he had breathing problems and passed before the parmedics could get there. Too bad.

    I guess we never know.
