A "big brother" to me as well as many of my friends in the neighborhood where I grew up in Ormond Beach, Florida. He has been dearly missed for many years.

I never had the distinct pleasure of meeting my cousin, Jim, but by all accounts from relatives he was an outstanding person and soldier. Wish I could have had the chance to know him.

From a cousin,
