Dear Betty and Family,

So sorry when I heard of Jim's passing. I always enjoyed visiting with him and felt I got to know him a lot better during our Washington DC in 2012. Betty, you can feel very proud of Jim's service to his country. He stepped up and answered the call and that was very important. Be assured he will be missed by all the members of the LCA Vietnam Vets group. Unfortunately, our numbers are also decreasing.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Brian D. Cummings
