Allison please accept my deepest and most heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Marlon was a true gentleman and a kindhearted person with a quite spirit. He fought a corageous fight and never complained, always thinking of others and trying to remain strong. One thing I know is he loved his family and children dearly and loved grilling out. He’s resting now and will always be your guardian angel, watching, smiling and protecting over you all.

Dear Alison and family, please accept my heartfelt condolences. In difficult times like this family and friends can offer much needed support. May their love and comfort be a constant at your door now in the the days to come. Most important is our relationship with God (Psalm 83:18) I pray that he gives you peace and that you find strength in him, his word and his promise of a resurrection in Isaiah 26:19.

To Allison and the entire James family….We send to you our deepest condolence in our lost of “Moe” James. I believe the stars in the sky may not be as they appear but rather openings in Heaven where our love ones shine down to let us know they are with us. Truly Marlin left many scars and memories here in Tampa with those whom were in elementary through high school with him. He will be missed.
