James has shuffled offstage after playing the "Heat Wave " melody one last time- (the break song for the K&D Bootery) I first Met James in the summer of 1966 @ Aquinas Band summer practice-His Humor already in play- As the Bands started to come together I got watch the metamorphosis of the pinball machine to electronic lighting system for the band-the many band trailer builds-the Green VW rebuild- later James started to carpenter work-He designed & built an addition to Our first home - He also designed a steel bed for a Datsun pickup which I welded together-He was a man of many talents- But the Big One was in 1989 when He jacked up the House @ 2015Vine Street -It was a large group of people-family etc- But it worked under His direction-Spring of 1989- Music talents of course -the Horns-Keyboards- He was always able to fill the time of a delay between songs with a doodle on the keys/horn-always at the ready-Like His Smile- Psalm 150:30 "Praise Him with Trumpet Sound " -James may you blow some hot tunes with the best of them for the Lord's Praise Pat & I Miss you Stephen & Pat Gund Sharing some photos

Jim without your talent, our band the k&d bootery would not have found the success that we did. I wish it would have lasted longer but we were all kids. I guess we didnt know what we had. I miss when we would all meet for breakfast and go over old times. I wish we could do it again. I know I will see you again. We all will. Watch over us brother. Always your dear friend.......Pat
