    To the man who loved Grandma Schreiber so much. He
    Looked after her for years when the rest of us lived so far
    Away. So very precious ! Valeska was everything to him and
    The whole family. Breakfast at Toddle Inn was best ! RIP !

    Uncle James was one of a kind. The best kind. He made everyone feel loved and appreciated. I spent all my summers and different times of the year with my Aunt Valeska, James and Grandma Rodman for many many years. Uncle James was always there to keep me out of trouble. Truth is I never got in trouble anyway. I loved him very much. We would go to the drive-in theater. He and Valeska would watch the movie to the front and I would check out our the movie behind us. It was usually R rated. I loved growing up with all of them. James thanks for making Valeska so happy and Grandma. I remember one thanksgiving at moms everyone came in a red shirt. Wasn’t planned. James didn’t have a red shirt on so I went home and got one for him. It was a red t-shirt with a tiger on the front. Love and miss you.

    I always called him Uncle James. He was my dad’s cousin and his best friend. The stories they would tell will forever ring in my memory. James could always make you feel you were the most special person in the world. I remember most of all our trips to the beach and the Brownsville zoo. His own personal angel Valeska is my hero and i, too, am grateful for everything she did for James. I’ll miss those blue eyes looking at me and saying , “I love you and I always have.” Same here Uncle James and please say hi to my mom.

    Uncle James was my most favorite Uncle. Uncle Pat was also at the top of my list. James always had my back when I was growing up. I remember going to the drive in movies with him and my Aunt Valeska. Every summer, Christmas vacation was spent with Valeska, James and Grandma. I treasure those memories. They are almost all my youth memories. I have always called him my Uncle James and I always will. Love you.
