Jim's Family: I don't know any of you but have many fond memories of my McRae classmate "Jug Head", James Lawson. He was a very popular class member and well respected and loved. That's about all any of us could wish for as we pass from this earth. I pray you will have peace knowing Jim has a new body and a new home. May you remember him with many fond memories. God bless, Jack & Nancy Henson, Morristown, TN
