  1. Amberly, I am so sorry to hear about James. My heart goes out to you and all your family. Prayers and hugs, Diana

  2. As a long time friend of Buck’s, my father and I are extremely sorry for your loss. We pray that God gives you strength through this trying time. ~Caleb and Brian

  3. James will be sorely missed. I enjoyed getting to know him during law school. He was extremely smart, funny and was a stand- up guy. He made criminal procedure tolearble for me and honestly taught me the material. He knew I hated that class. We studied so many hours together, he was so dedicated. I would want to quit way before him. He had endurance and perseverance. It was apparent that he loved his family very much and that he was going to law school for them to provide a great life for them. On the rare occasion we got to socialize outside of school, James could hang with the best of them.

    James you will be missed by many. I’m sorry we hadn’t seen each other in awhile. I enjoyed our friendship and won’t forget you.

    Sending your family love and prayers.

  4. James’ humor, laughter, and smile helped brighten the world around him. He was cherished by those who had the pleasure of being his friend. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this time. James was more than just a colleague, but a friend. He is loved and will be missed.

  5. To the Ward family, my husband and I extend our heartfelt sympathy.
