To the Kerr family my heartfelt condolences.
Although I didn’t know James well I had pleasure of working with him for a short time at BAF in Moses lake Washington.
He was a dedicated worker who treated us well. He was kind and helpful.
It was evident that he missed his family very much and on several occasions he expressed this.
God bless him and his family
