I was so sadden to hear of James passing! I knew James back in High School and he was always the class clown
who was so funny he kept us laughing all the time, he would always tease you but you could never make him mad,
no matter how mad you got at him about his teases he just laugh at you and find someone else tease. Although i
haven seen him in many years not since High School i often think of him as well as many others To his Family and Friends
you have my deepest sympathy, and i know he will be truly missed. RIP James Lynch. Washington High School

Family and friends you have my deepest sympathy. This is a difficult time for most. There are basic things that can help anyone get through the pain no matter what age, gender or religious beliefs. Many have been helped with the twelve basics or just a few. You can go to and get the basics with no cost ever. See the article “Help for those who grieve “ in the magazine section. Anyone can get help and comfort.

My condolences to the Lynch families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear James. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
