Ms. Edith, Marisa and family,
Words can’t express how I feel about losing Mr. Jim. There wasn’t anything that I came to him with that he didn’t help me or my kids with... I will miss he greatly! You guys were blessed with an amazing Husband, Dad, Uncle and grandfather. I know he is in Heaven watching all of us and I hope he runs into my grandparents and uncle and tell them how much I love and miss them. I thank you for allowing us to be apart of his life. God Bless you all!! My cactus was a baby 5 years ago when he gave it to me but it’s growing strong and I will make sure he continues to grow because as long as it live you will live within it💜💜💜

I'll never forget the enjoyment that Mr. Telese got from his garden, as well as all the joy he brought to those around him.

To Mrs. Telese, Jim and Deanna, and family,

My sincerest sympathy to all of you at this difficult time. i pray that God grants you peace, knowing that James now rests with Him in Heaven. As the song, "Well Done," goes by The Afters:
Well done, well done,
My good and faithful one,
Welcome to the place where you belong,
Well done, well done,
My beloved child,
You have run the race and now you're home,
Welcome to the place where you belong.
Take comfort in the cherished memories of James that will remain with you always.
