To the Cleveland Family, we the Griffin Family, offer our deepest condolences during your time of bereavement. I had the privilege to watch Brother James Cleveland throughout high school. I enjoyed watching him play Basketball. I later had the opportunity to serve with him in church for many years! He was truly a mighty man of GOD! He was truly loved & he shall surely be missed! I also had the opportunity to serve with him at Greenville County. I pray our Father in Heaven continues to give the family comfort as they mourn the lost of this of this Man of GOD! Revelation 21:4/2Corinthians 5:6-8 NKJV /RVR 1960
