So sad about your passing. I enjoyed you and your beautiful and eclectic restaurant over the years very much. Your artistic talents were reflected in St. James at the Vineyard not only by the beautiful artifacts displayed but also by the excellence of the food. Palm Springs will miss you very much.

James was always his own person.
He was a master of making people come together. His smile and laughter lit up the room.
He will be missed!
May you rest with the angels James.
