Mr. Shaw was such a kind man, always treating the children on his bus as if they were his own. We teachers could also count on his warm smile and morning greetings to start our day. His gentle spirit touched so many, and we are all so blessed to have known him. Much love and prayers go to his family.

Mr. Shaw was such a delightful, even-tempered man who blessed so many children as he transported them to and from school. Many years ago, as I was fighting tears while putting my daughter on Mr. Shaw's bus to ride from the high school (where I worked) to the primary school, Mr. Shaw sensed my struggle. "Don't you worry," he told me, "These are my precious cargo..." Indeed all of the children were precious to him. I heard him talk of precious cargo many times after that...and because he loved them, he was loved by our family and countless others, I am sure.

It is a painful thing to lose someone very precious, regardless of how long they have lived, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and he has promised to get rid of this enemy at 1 Corinthians 15:26 “the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” Through his son, Jesus, He promise that "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out"( John 5:28, 29). Exquisite joy it will be to see our love ones again! I hope these words give you all comfort.

To the Shaw family.
James was a very caring and loving person and will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
D Fields left a message on May 30, 2017:
I would like to send my condolences to the Shaw family. Losing a loved one in death is a terrible tragedy to suffer. Your loved one lived what many consider to be a long life. However, to God, it was not long enough. God purposed for humans to live forever, so no one would have to experience the grief that death brings (Romans 6:23). God will act soon to put an end to the last enemy, death (1 Corinthians 15:26).

I am so sorry for your loss. Mr, Shaw was one of the kindest gentleman that I have ever known and I never forgot him. He drove my school bus so many years ago and we all loved him. I remember that he used to give us candies and made everyone feel special. I know that he will be dearly missed by all the many lives that he touched with his sweet and gentle nature.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To all the Shaw family, I am deeply saddened at the loss of Uncle James. He was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. He always made you feel loved and was a joy to be around. He will be greatly missed by me and I am sure everyone that knows him. He had a wonderful wife and family that I know he loved very much. He is in heaven now with Aunt Milbris, Granny and Daddy! My love and prayers to you all! I love you all very much!!
