James and Rachel and their family had purchased their first home last year and then James was laid off from his job. He was setting a course for a new profession as a nurse. He continued to fight to make Holyoke a better place for all those who struggle every day and to shine his pointed and humor laden criticism on those whose corruption he despised. He was an artist in everything he did bringing chaos and charm together.
Many people have reached out and asked what they can do to help. Right now, ensuring that there is enough money to pay funeral costs and the mortgage and addressing other financial issues without additional worry seems to be the best thing.
Please help if you can. Anything would be appreciated as the family deals with the shock and the sorrow of losing this man of valor.
