James said that –
It was “heartbreaking” to learn of her failing health at the time but added that she was “surrounded by so much love” and that “right now for me it’s all about taking it a day at a time, step by step, and being grateful for another sunrise. I have my entire family with me, and we will all laugh (I’ll cry!) and dance through this while lounging in the sun.”
