James was a very compassionate, caring, and loving husband, father, brother, grandfather, son, and friend. He had a heart of gold. His courage and wisdom is who he was “a survivor” his strength, his faith always thumped the challenges in life.

    To the Kelson family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is reliable comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. Read Acts 24:15 and Revelation 21:4. In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. I would like to discuss more with you about God’s promises. Feel free to contact me at (614) 870-2979. Love Your Neighbor Irish J Richardson. Please call.
