ARLETTE AND I SPOKEMANY TIMES TO BOTH JIM AND SANDRA.  AFTER
DEPARTING BRANSON, THEY WERE DRIVING TO TENNESSEE SO JIM COULD ATTEND A FAMILY REUNION.

WHAT A WONDERFUL FRIENDLY WAY IN WHICH JIM REACHED THE END OF HIS TIME ON EARTH.  IT WAS SPENT WITH NAVY SHIPMATES AND FAMILY
RELATIVES.

SANDRA, OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO YOU AND TO JIM'S FAMILY.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU!
