Sharon, Rick, and Kaitlyn- You have been in our hearts and prayers as you have endured this difficult time. We know that your father is now at peace and finally free from the pain and suffering, but know that you also will miss him greatly. Be comforted in knowing that he is with Jesus and is now watching down on you in all you do. Remember his love and legacy for all of you, we know how much he cared for you all and appreciated all that you have done to support him during his illness. Marshall, Angie, and Allyson Cook, July 12, 2010 Bud was always ready to lend a helping hand. He used to do all the yard work for Cornerstone Worship Center even in the heat of the summer. His mind was on the Lord and that is practically all I ever heard him talk about. He and Betty made me feel like one of the family. I will miss him. Annette Darlene Douglas, July 10, 2010 Betty & family our thoughts & prayers are with you. As far as I know I wasn't any relation to James but there were different Alexander's in McKinney. I use to see you at the beauty shop & you bought a sofa & chair from Don & me several yrs. ago. I lost my husband last Oct. 13th from cancer. May God Bless You during this most difficult time. Love Lonita Alexander Barnes Rains, July 8, 2010 Dear Sharon, Rick & Kaitlyn, We are so very sorry for your loss. He is finally free of all the pain this horrible disease caused him and all of you.
