I am so sorry for your loss. We lost our son Jacob to anxiety in Dec 2016. Like James, Jake was a hockey player and we received a lot of support from his team mates and their families. So much of James' story hit home for me. I have similar photos of Jake fishing, traveling, goofing around with friends. He was a happy kid until the last 3 months of his life. We tried everything to help Jake and failed to save him. My wife's family still lives in MA so we catch news stories from there. Again my sincere condolences for your loss.

Dear John-I am so sorry to hear this. I just came across this through a friend. It's been so many years since we lived on Spring St. but I have nothing but fond memories of you and Richie and all your sisters, but especially of your mom & dad who were aways so good to me. So very, very sorry for your loss, and for you families sorrow. I lost my oldest son Jack 11 years ago. His birthday would be soon, he'd have been 40. You will never stop grieving, there is no end to it, but eventually you will learn to live with the process as you pass through it. My sincere condolences to you and your family...

I am saddened to hear about James. I had the privilege of teaching him in first grade. He was a kind and sweet young boy with a winning smile. He had a keen thirst for knowledge for such a young student. My prayers are with your family at this most difficult time.

I had the good fortune and experience of educating James at MVRCS in Library class. He was always, always, courteous and polite to me and fellow classmates. His efforts and enthusiasm for LIBRARY topics was second to none. I am profoundly saddened at your loss and I hope the Luti family memories of young James Luti will always bring a smile when his name is mentioned. He will be missed. Mr & Mrs Luti I know you are extremely sad at this moment, but please find comfort knowing that your children always displayed great effort for academics and cared for fellow classmates with reason. My teaching career at MVRCS also allowed me to educate Anna and Mitchell in Library too, outstanding citizens.

My heart go's out to the family and friends of James I did not personally know him but from what I heard he was a great kid loving,caring out going and a kid if you no him you'd love him I am saddened deeply the pain is very heartbreaking and I can't even imagine the pain the family is going threw may he always walk in sunshine with God's arms around him may the angles watch over him and guide him for he is not gone just resting his weary head until the day he reunites with his loved ones let the sun shine bright for when the sun is shining that is his smile when it rains that is his tear washing away the sadness for he would want that so when you are sad rap your arms around your self and squeeze for that is James hug telling you it will be alright you will be deeply missed R.I.P sweet Angel and God bless the family and friends.The Bartoloni Family.
