I Lost a Friend:
I lost a special friend today
the kind you can't replace,
and looking at her empty bed
I still can see her face.
I know she's in a special place
our Lord has for such friends,
Where meadows, fields & flowers
help make them strong and whole again.
I know she's watching over me
She'll be with me when I cry,
So with one more kiss on her beloved head
I told my friend goodbye.

With warm and loving regards for Sayde.
Feb. 2004 to Feb. 5, 2016

James has 6 sellers and each seller has their own table they set up and hold items up for auction. By doing this the seller saves on the cost of selling.

Each item can have up to 5 duplicates and the seller has the choice to sell more than one item of the same thing based on the selling price of the first item.
