  • This message is for all the family members of James Cain. I had the great pleasure of being one of James’s neighbors over here at Autumn Chase Apartments. He was a great person and will be missed very much around here. We all loved when he was walking around with his little dog Foxy and stopped and talked with him. He spoke a lot about his Grand son and newest grandson often. He was always full of life, and I think what I will miss the most is his big smile and laugh. I will never forget James, he will always be in my heart and in my memories.. My prayers our with all the Cain family. God Bless, and I know that James is looking down at all of us and watching over us. The last thing I have to say is that I am a better person for knowing Mr. James Cain. God Bless James and some day I will see you when I cross over.
