Jim, I'm truly saddened by the news of Eugene's death. I always considered
him one of my best friends. Although we had not kept in touch over the
years, I have many fond memories of our growing up together in Seven Oaks,
going the Thomas Jefferson, Walter Reed, and Newport News High School.
I wish I could be there to pay my respects to ET and give you my condolences in person.
