My sincerest condolences to the family. I was quite fond of James both as a patient and a friend, and had great respect for him. I appreciated both his help and advice with beekeeping and loved his honey. I only heard him play once and that too was special. I cared for my patients will certainly miss him. Dr Rodney Stalheim
