Whenever I think of James, I smile.
Reason is I would do anything to share a laugh with him. Actually I think it was more of a mission of mine to make him laugh. After all if you could make one of the world’s funniest copywriters laugh, then I figured I was doing all right. As I write this I think how self-serving this must sound. However, I think it is another example of how James was able to bring out the best in all of us.
The most endearing thing about James is that he would be disbelieving of and embarrassed by all of the kind words shared about him. Disbelief because he really has no idea of how much he means to all of us. And embarrassed because he probably doesn’t think he is worthy of it. Well lil’ buddy, you are. And I use the present tense because you will continue to be an inspiration for so many of us.
Crap, this isn’t making you laugh… is it?
