My Dear Sweet Janie and Huston, Juston, Jordon and Hanson,

We are all heart broken over the loss of James. We lift you all up in prayer and ask God to wrap His arms around each of you and help carry you through this difficult time.

James was the True Measure of a Man. Humble, and always giving of himself.

You are blessed to have called him Husband and Father. He touched so many lives and will be forever missed by all.

James and I knew one another through the Kristynik family and my brother, Gepe Hardy. What a loss. My husband, Vincent R. DiNino, former director of the LHB and I just spoke with him about two weeks ago. We planned to get together mid-October Hook 'Em in heaven James, you're up there with the QB of all times. We will miss you.

Aside from all his accomplishments, James was a very GOOD man. And that is what we have lost. God bless James and all his family.

Got his autograph on my Sports Illustrated just 4 weeks ago in Little Rock. Waited 44 years to have him sign it. He was the best !

Guys like James seem to have kind of immortal quality about them. I never thought of him being. Undersized. Thanks for being the young man who threw perhaps the most famous pass in all of NCAA history!

James. No words can express what your smile meant to me as you and Janie greeted me and my young boys, often as the last to get into the church on so many Sunday mornings. No words had to be spoken. We just knowingly smiled as we sat on the window ledge among a gaggle of our collective children while they fidgeted. You will be missed! But you are so remembered! Peace, James.

Sally and I were deeply saddened by James' passing. He was a great guy.
Just adding to his talents, besides football and baseball, he was a very good
golfer!! Rest in Peace James.

Texas lost a football hero this week. His life influenced many young people, both on and off the field. A true Texas legend will be missed.

To the James Street family! I am sure that you are fully aware of just how much love and admiration so many of us had and have for this fine man!
It was my good fortune to have been the Longhorn Band Director during his time at UT. It is a sad! yet glorious time that we had Coach Royal, James and so many of those players and coaches who are no longer with us!
Blessings upon the Street family!!!!! and know
