I was in the eighth when I saw James play at the old Lobo stadium he was my hero from then on.Few people know this but it was James that stopped the high school policy of giving a letter jacket every time you lettered.From '67 onward one jacket per year regardless of letters you earned that year.James earned 12 letter jackets from sen.years.4 each year for football,basketball,track & baseball.A very gifted athlete!May God bless James Street and family,Bob Gilchrist LHS'70

My sincere condolences to the entire family. I spent many summers and holidays at my grandparents, neighbors of the Street family. The Street children and I attended movies, played croquet and just hung out together. I ama so sorry for this loss. May the wonderful memories of James sustain the whole family.

God's Promise
God never promised a life without pain,
Laughter without tears or sun without rain.
But He did promise strength for the day,
Comfort for the tears and the light for the way,
And for all who believe In His Heaven above
He rewards their faith In His everlasting love.

My memories of Mary and James at Judson Middle School, then later at LHS are sweet. May God be with the family and mend their broken hearts.

Janie and Family.....
Some people just make a difference and James was a difference maker all along his journey here. He touched the lives and many, many people, young and old and made this world a brighter and better place. We pray that God will lift your grief swiftly and you will find strength and courage in the memories that fill the scrapbook in your heart. We send our sincerest condolences.

Just want to express my sincere sympathies to the Street family and friends. I was a neighbor/friend of the Street family on West Ann Street. I spent many summer hours hanging out with Sewell. I dearly loved Mrs. Street and I know she is missed as well. James and Mary were little kids then. Just know that James' mom is waiting for him. Molly
