    James was a special friend to me and mine. I went to high school with Him and we ran around in the same group. We reconnected years later and we had good times together. James will be missed by many. I only wish He could have found the perfect sunshine while He was here. Fly high and watch over your babies from there. You are loved, Slette.

    Judy and Bill, I saw the obit in the paper. I have good memories of all the kids playing together, “baby James” among them, esp during the bridge games. Blessings to you at this loss.

    If this is the James we think it is, he was our neighbor on Normandy Dr. in Irving for several years. He was a very friendly and helpful person, and we know that he loved the TV show “Columbo.” We have missed him since he moved away, and will miss him even more now.

    Sorry to hear the loss. I remember him in Jefferson middle school and high school throughout when we were young he will be missed

    I love him and will miss him. During sleepovers with Kathleen, James would always come into her room and want to be in the middle of whatever we were doing. Not in an attempt to interrupt, aggravate, or annoy. He wanted to talk, tell stories, and make us laugh. He always wanted to make people laugh. As teens, we would sometimes all go out together. He was always the one to make everyone laugh. Hysterically funny. He was a good friend, and a loving and protective brother. He will be sorely missed.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
