From MELA: This painting was created in honor of James Cottrell, a high school friend and a true war hero. He was our tiger mascot and I remember I was always impressed that he could still do a back flip with the full tiger uniform on, including the big furry head. James was tough and was one of our favorite wrestlers to cheer for. He always had a positive attitude no matter what happened. After his service as a marine, Joe and I were touched by his story that was shared through Canines with a Cause - an amazing organization that rescues dogs, gives inmates an opportunity to train them and then connects veterans suffering from PTSD to these dogs for companionship. James and his dog JD were a great example of how this program works. Thank you for your service. Keeping you and your family in our prayers. RIP James 🇺🇸
