James was brutally murdered on July 23, 1993, when he pulled off a highway to take a nap on the side of the road. James was shot to death while sleeping, and the two attackers then hid his body in the woods and stole his car. His body wasn’t discovered until the following month. “You know, my mother was so strong,” Michael recalled of his mom’s advice at his father’s funeral service. “The first thing she says, ‘You know, you got to be thankful.’ You know, and I started looking at the positive.” “One of the things that he always taught me is that you have to take a negative and turn it into a positive,” he added. “So I started looking to the other side of it, and that helped me get through it.”
