James performed at my Mother's memorial service. His attire, demeanor and performance were professional and appropriate to the occasion; his communications and interaction me conveyed warmth and caring always. In spite of the last minute booking, song choices and several program changes, he was very gracious and accommodating.

Response from James McCarthy:
I was honored to be asked to sing at the memorial service for Sandy and Sharon's mother. Since I have helped organize memorial services, including for my own mother, I know that each choice is important and can take time to arrive at what feels right.
The family requested that I play "Over the Rainbow" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". I had a short preparation period but wanted both songs to be 'under my belt' so I could let the feeling be both relaxed and meaningful. My hopes for touching the right tone in the service were affirmed when various family and friends expressed that the songs were meaningful to them.
