   Mr. Heyward was proceeded in death by his son, Michael Heyward. He is survived by his children James Heyward, Jr. (Julia), Tyrone Heyward (Destia), Cereta Heyward, Bernard Heyward (Sabbon), and Sabrina Bryant (Marc); six grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, his sister, Ellen Townsend; aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

My condolences to the Heyward family. I pray God comforts the family during this time of bereavement. May the many cherished and loving memories of James comfort his family and friends. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Psalm 46:1 ""God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress."" May you all have peace of mind and calming thoughts during this time.

My condolences to the family. You are not alone during this time of great loss. The one who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. God has resurrected humans in the past on earth through his son Jesus Christ and he is eager to do it again. John 11:29-44. He even refers to death an enemy, 1 Corinthians 15:26. So take comfort in these scripture, for you are not alone in mourning your loss.

Offering sincere condolences, no doubt this is a difficult time for the family. May you put trust in the many promises our Heavenly Father says will soon come about and allow that wonderful hope to comfort you in the days ahead. (John 11:25; Ps. 37:29)
