Antoinette Alicia James

from Washington DC, Washington, D.C.

Antoinette 'Toni' Alicia James had a passion for life. Antoinette was a free spirited person, with a smile and dimple to match that made an impact on so many people’s lives throughout her own journey.

Antoinette went to work in the cafeteria at Saint Elizabeth’s Hospital and eventually became a good will ambassador for an organization known as Volunteers of America after winning the hearts of the staff and peers turned friendships during her time as a resident and patient. Antoinette had a natural gift of her hands, able to draw the most beautiful pictures, craft the oddest of Knick knacks and had a flair for fashion which complimented her eccentric spirit. Another hobby of hers was basketball and enjoying the freedoms of a nomadic Washingtonian. Antoinette had a great sense of humor and was a fighter! Yes, a fighter....she fought to be here and leave her mark over the last 62 years. Above all she had a spiritual connection always keeping her rosaries and bible near which is what inspired the names of her children, David's name being books of the Bible and Deborah, a prophetess of God.

    I am sorry for your loss, please accept my deepest condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again (John 5:28, 29).

    No one wants to lose their loved ones. I offer my condolences to the family of Antoinette. I wish to offer much more in the way of comfort. The God of all comfort plans a wonderful future for Antoinette. In the Bible at Luke 7:22 Jesus showed great love for others. He went from city to city, telling people the good news about the Kingdom of God. He cured the blind, the lame, and the deaf. He raised the dead. Jesus even gave his own life in behalf of mankind. What does this mean for us? In the Lord’s Prayer we pray for God’s Kingdom to come and his will to be done. What a wonderful part of that Kingdom rule to bring our loved ones back in the earthly resurrection. It’s God’s guarantee that Antoinette will be with us again!
