Jamie was a very special young man. His smile was he and his alone. You could be feeling bad or upset and in walked this tall young man with this great smile and warm hugs. He loved life, loved his peers and admired and respected his teachers. He was always a go to student to help others. He was funloving, serious when needed and always faithful. He wanted adventure and a good life. I shall always remember him in my heart and know that he is smiling and moving on down the road in a happy place. This world will miss him but they will also remember him. May we all remember how very special life is and give to others our time and caring. Jamie would want this from us--just look out for those special to you. Kackie Eller, Counselor at GW

Dear Jim and Lucille,
It was with deep sadness that we saw the notice of James's passing. We remember James fondly as a child at Baptist Temple, always smiling, always full of fun, one of the gang. He was a wonderful young man. We remember your family fondly. Prayers for comfort and peace at this very sad time.

" . . . In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom. 8:37-39

Heaven definitely gained a young man with a huge heart. While my student at GW , James would often stop by my cubicle to ask about English or to talk about life. Even after he was out of GW, he would stop by when he could and we would "catch up" as he made sure I knew he was doing all right. James truly was a bright light with a shining smile and and a gentle heart. My condolences to all those who loved him. May you feel the arms of the Lord around you and give you peace.

Posted by Kaye Jones - South Charleston, WV - Teacher/student   January 06, 2016

I'm very saddened to hear of James' passing. We knew each other as kids at BT and my sister and I love all the Gore kids. My heart smiles that he will be remembered in the halls of BT.
