Denice and family,
We are truly saddened by the loss of James. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Our hearts are so heavy! We remember you bringing your children to us to love on and care for them while you worked at the hospital. Jasmine, James, and Jashawn were a true joy to us. We have so many fond memories! What I remember most about James is that at age 3 and 4 he would stand outside on the playground and look at himself/his reflection in the window of the Multipurpose Room. He would make funny faces at himself, dance, and then laugh at his own funny self! He cracked his self up laughing everyday. There are so many stories to tell as he aged through our program. The day all three children aged out/graduated from the Children’s Corner was a sad day for us! Thank you for allowing us to be part of your family. We love you all and will continue to pray for peace and comfort. Much love Children’s Corner Staff
