In Loving Memory of James “Yoshi” May

Dear Friends and Family, It is with a profound sense of loss and heartfelt sorrow that we must share the news of the passing of our beloved James “Yoshi” May. James departed from this world on the morning of Monday, July 1st.

James, known affectionately as Yoshi to us all, was not just a friend but a cherished member of our community and a colleague whose impact was as profound as his presence was joyous. His departure leaves a void that words cannot adequately fill, and we will miss him more than words can express.

We invite you to join us in a celebration of James’s life, to honor his memory, and to bid him a fond farewell. The service will be held on Saturday, July 13th at 10:00 am. We will gather at Shawnee Mission Park, Shelter 12.

In these moments of mourning, let us come together to remember the warmth of his smile, the generosity of his spirit, and the enduring legacy he leaves behind.

To order memorial trees or send flowers to the family in memory of James Lewis May, please visit our flower store.
