I met James when he and I were employed at General Dynamics in the 70's. I soon realized that he was a genuine person and I was honored that we became friends. He was one of the hardest working men I had ever been around, and also honest and loyal. He never failed to speak to me and my wife whenever he saw us around town, and just having conversation with James made everyone feel better. The short of it, Mr. James Degrate was a good man! Rest in peace, James.

My prayers and sympathy are extended to the family and loved ones of Mr. Degrate. Keep your faith in the resurrection promised at John 5:28, 29. Soon God will put an end to all sickness, sorrow and pain. He will also do away with our enemy death as promised at 1 Corinthians 15:26. Pray for God's kingdom to come as Jesus taught us to do. Please be comforted by the words expressed at Revelation 21:3, 4. Remember: God keeps His promises and it is impossible for God to lie!
