by Mom. Dad, Samantha and Eric:
Boomer-You've left us just a short while ago but you touched so many people while you were here. You came into this world 13 weeks early weighing in at 1 pound 14 ounces and was just 14 1/2 inches long, but what a little fighter you were!! I think Brother Ralph Dosey said it best when he gave us the following message at your funeral service:
"Whenever someone would ask me, "Who was the greatest heavyweight fighter in the world?" I, without thinking would say Muhammad Ali. But that will never be the answer for me anymore. Because after meeting a little tiny baby boy by the name of James Orville Bain, III, he was just a super lightweight not much to look at when looking for a heavyweight contender. Little did I know that this baby was a real fighter in his heart, James didn't know the meaning of giving up. He fought endlessly non-stop everyday of his life without a break. And because of this his parents knew that they had a real champion in their family. And all great fighters have a nickname, so Teresa and James called him "Boomer", what a perfect name for him. Boomer continued to fight for seven months straight non-stop, what a fighter he was. And finally on May 25,1999 God sounded the bell and little Boomer went to his corner. The Angels took off his gloves and put on a new white robe on him. If I could speak for Little James I believe this is what he would say at the end of his bout: To my mom and dad, family and friends: II Timothy 4:7-8 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that last day; and not for only, but unto all that love His appearing. Little Boomer."
