Praise God. I had the honor of teaching with Ms. James at Ouachita Parish High School. She was so talented and kind. When I began my ministry in 1996, she encouraged me all the time and painted the Lord’s Supper for me. She was always kind and considerate of others. She will be missed greatly.

My prayers are with her family.

My deep condolences, prayers, and sympathy for all of the James family. May the Lord hold you all and bring you peace in this time. It is Him we thank for blessing this world with the presence of Betty. The light she was and is in the world. For the children, she has formed into great people. And the generations of good she passes on to all that encounter her family. God Bless you all James family and thank you Betty for everything.
