in South Vietnam, Binh Duong.
It has been 37 years since I
last saw Jimmy, but his memory still lingers on and probably always will,
until we meet again. Jimmy and his family were always good friends during
our years of growing up in Newport News. From Pee Wee football to high
school sports, Jimmy was an outstanding athlete and always had a great
attitude and outlook.
Here on this Memorial Day of 2002, I post my gratitude for having known
Jimmy and want to express my appreciation for having him as a friend.

There are many people that
give up everything for what they believe in and he made the ultimate
sacrifice. He gave up everything that he ever had and I am very grateful for
it. So I would just like to say thank you for all you did and there are many
good lasting results because of it. God Bless You. Thank you, Brooke
