    James (Jamie) 🙂
    Dustin and I are still trying to process this loss. You were such a force in both of our lives. You were my first date :), my first real boyfriend and a constant in my life even after that. I always considered you one of my best friends and I have the best memories with you! I knew I could count on you to be there just to listen and to make me laugh. You were like a brother to Dustin and his heart is broken. I wish I knew how to fix this for him and everyone else that is suffering through this loss. You introduced Dustin and I and we are so thankful for that and for you. In each other we have found true love and it would not have been possible if you were not there to make that introduction. Thank you for all of the good times, all the memories, all the laughter, love and FUN!!!! WE LOVE YOU JAMES ALLEN COPES.
