A memorial service for James will be held at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013 in the chapel of Carson McLane Funeral Home. Pastor Bobby Bishop will officiate. The family will receive friends at the funeral home prior to the service on Wednesday from Noon (12 p.m. - 2 p.m.) until service time. The burial will occur at Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Glennville, Ga., near Savannah. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, please send donations to a military charity. One suggestion is Operation Home Front, Army Emergency Relief Fund, www.operationhomefront.net, or go to www.charitynavigator.org , and search “Military Army”, for the charity of your choice. Without these charities the Military would not be able to assist with some of the needs of Military Members, Veterans and their families.
