Susan,
It was 1951. We were just beginning 1st grade at Oakland Heights School. You and I had just met, maybe at a "Welcome to the first grade" orientation meeting? I was a very timid little boy who wasn't sure about this new school experience. You said you would come to my home and walk with me to school. And you did! You and I, and my older brother and sister walked to school the first day. You were so pretty I tried to hide behind them as we walked. You may not remember it, but I never forgot your kindness. I may have been too shy to say it then, so I'll tell you now - Thanks.
I think we were in the same class all through grade school.
An old friend

On April 6, 2018 June Johnson sent this account of knowing Jim at Kent State in 1967:

I knew Jim when he went to Kent State University, he wanted to be a veterinarian. 

He had lost his brother-in-law Ken Robinson in the Vietnam war. Ken was a MIA until 1989 when they recovered the remains and his airplane. He was a pilot.  That bothered Jim a lot that he was missing.

He said he had to stay out of college one year to get extra money to pay for his college knowing what would happen with the draft.  He didn't have to go he was the only son but he went anyway.  

He did enjoy the Army way liked the buddies he made in there.

He was on maneuvers at Eglin Air Force Base to be a Ranger when he and another young man were struck by lightning.  The base was/is  noted for lightning strikes.  He was buried in Cresthaven Memorial Cemetery, Bedford, Indiana

I miss him and think of him daily. Someday we will be together again.

He was one of the sweetest most loving person i have ever met.  I worried about him going to Vietnam because he never could hurt anyone or thing.  He was so intelligent, witty and caring but you guys knew all that.

I am sorry I can't add more. Hopefully you can use some of this information 

Thank you
June Johnson
