I send our deepest sympathy from our family to all of James Doyle's family. James Doyle and his parents farmed the property owned by my grandmother, Mrs. J. M. (Emma) Hunt and her sister, my great aunt, Mrs. C.A. (Mamie) Covington for many years. It's been ages since we had any contact but I know James Doyle was a fine man from a wonderful family. We are very sad to hear of his passing and send our deepest condolences to each of you. With sincere sympathy, Crozier & Rita Brown Dallas Crozier Brown, August 19, 2010 Jackie and James were my neighbors when I first moved to Frisco. Such dear people. He will be missed. Lynda G Vest-Humbarger, August 19, 2010 David, I am so sorry about James' passing. He was such a great man...when I came to Farm Bureau he was always so wonderful and gave me such a hard time...he was easy to love and we all miss him dearly. His coffee cup is still hanging in his special place where he left it so many years ago. Losing a parent is very hard no matter how old you are...please remember you and your family are in my heart, my thoughts and my prayers.
