james was very special and many people are sad that he is gone. with such sadness comes a great deal of other emotions. i hope that he would forgive the trespasses of those who are speaking out as a result of their deep sorrow and greif.

I also wondered why the step mom wasn't mentioned. I thought it was strange.

No one has even called his Dad. He found out about it in a text message his other son got on Thanksgiving morning.

My name is Kim and on the subject on "James" you must not have knew him cause he hated to be called Jamie unless you was his family I knew him well also and for all of you talking s*** about Misty must not have knew them at all ya they had their problems what couple does not what they was going through is no ones business and to be calling her a pill head and all the bad things being said is so much crap and on top of it your to much of a coward to even say who you are. Misty loved and always will love James as well as her girls they are the ones all 3 hurting not counting the grandmother whos house he was at. So anyone wanting to talk crap then needs to try face 2 face instead where the whole world can read your lies and to everyone taking up for misty thankyou! You must be the true friends. Misty is a great mother just as James was a great father and anyone can put the blame but what you do not know is he was fighting with his GIRLFRIEND that night at the hyperion so you do not know what might have been going on in his head. Him and Misty was no longer together he had the chance to get his kids 1 week and her 1 week thats the way they had it in the divorce so unless your going to comment to me or say good things about any of this then at least step up and say who you are.

I am the"GIRLFRIEND" I do have a name please refrain from making any negative comments in regards to the night of James' death. I did all that I could to help him. I was on the phone when he did this so I would appreciate it very much if you would leave out what was "our" business. I am living in a nightmare as are my sons who loved him dearly. I love James and he knew that. He loved his daughters more than the air he breathed. A person who bottles up all their pain is a ticking time bomb. I was with him more than without. Please I do not appreciate your comment I have to deal with this and you will never know the pain I carry in my heart for him and the loved ones he left behind. I called 911 and got them there as quickly as they could. My prayers go out to all he touched with his love and kindness. Dont go pointing fingers especially at a time like this.

Girlfriend or not you could of stopped him from doing what he was doing. I'm not putting the blame on you but you shouldn't have put the blame on misty either. And no one was directing anything towards you but everyone that was putting the blame on Misty

Ok you have all the answers how in the hell do you stop someone from hanging themselves over the phone,,, please share with me!! I called 911 when he first threatened it I did not take this threat lightly!!! NOONE SHOULD> I dont blame anyone yet I am left to carry all this baggage. This is a nightmare I live with every waking moment.I am genuinly sorry for all that have to share this pain. I am truly sorry for those two little girls left without a father.And yes I hurt for Misty as well.I am not a vindictive person and probably shouldnt have said things about anyone on here, especially considering what it has put so many people through. I am also so sorry for his family for ever commenting on anything on here you say alot of things when you are hurting. I pray and I pray,, thats all I have.

We just found out about this and wanted to know if this was the same James French who at one point lived in Cookeville. If so, I went to school with him and want to let our former classmates know what happened. Thank you for your help - I am sending thoughts to his family.
