    I have thought of James many times since high school, but regret that I never reconnected with him. Some of my fondest memories of him were from when we were on the speech and debate team together. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this very sad time. . . .

    My heartfelt prayers are with you at this time of loss. I am heartbroken. I considered Jimmy a dear friend in high school. We often had lunch together at Roseberry’s and he would stop and visit me at John Minnis’ Ready to Wear, where I worked on the square. We were on the speech team together and had several classes. I remember him as so happy and such a sensitive person who cared about everyone. He always made me laugh with his drama about something. We used to “hash” everything that happened at school while he worked at Roseberry’s and I would sit at the counter and have a coke. I remember his bright eyes and beautiful eyelashes…the girls always thought it was unfair he was blessed with those!! I regret we did not stay in touch after high school, although I tried to reach him several times for class reunions. He will be remembered always and the CHS Class of 1987 will keep him close in our hearts. God bless you and keep you in this extreme time of sorrow. My prayers are with you.

    Jimmy, may you rest in peace. My condolences and prayers go out to Glenda and his family. Jimmy will be missed but not forgotten.

    When I remember my past in Carrollton, it is hard to find a memory that Jimmy was not part of. We would ride our bike around town (before we got our cars) and ride together to school. He was always such a good friend to me, one that I confided many things to. We always had a blast in Speech and Debate and just plain hanging out at Charlie’s. After I left Carrollton, as it is with many realtionships, I lost touch with Jimmy. It is always hard to lose someone you care about and this is no different. I will always remember Jimmy with a smile! My heartfelt sympathy goes out to his mother, brother and extended family. Jimmy, you will be missed by many!

    James posessed the rare capacity to disarm a hardened heart with only his radiant smile. My prayers are with Glenda, Kevin and everyone who loved and cared for this gentle person.

    I can’t believe that it is true. What a wonderful person we will all miss! I have so many memories of growing up with Jimmy. I’m so sorry I didn’t get to talk to him in the recent years. We should never wait too long. God bless you Jimmy. I will keep Glenda, Kevin and the family in my thoughts and prayers.

    I met James while he was a parishioner at Grace and Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Kansas City. From time to time he served as an acolyte and I will always remember him for his ready smile, sense of humor, and genuine concern for others. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

    I was very sorry to read of the loss of Jimmy Atherton. I was his third grade teacher and have very fond memories of him, Kevin (who was also one of my third graders), and his mom, Glenda who was very faithful about attending parent-teacher confereces. I loved teaching in Carrollton and have wonderful memories of that time and place. The Athertons figured prominently into my wonderful memories. I am sorry I didn’t keep in touch with them after I left Carrollton but I know this is a tremendous loss for the family. Know, Kevin and Glenda, I’m thinking about you.

    We are saddened by James’s death. He worshiped regularly with us, both on Sundays and at our midday service. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

    That is the problem. Any Top dog nearly simply by definition is in charge of exactly what goes on in their or your ex company. Perceptions. like Murdoch would be the reason why things like your 2008 monetary downturn occurs, oahu is the reasons why deregulation didn’t get together on the claims. Responsibilty signifies having possession, while one doesn’t consider control that belongs to them organization someone else has got to.
