    I graduated with his sister Linda in 1967. I remember Richard and his brother Steve. I read Linda's remembrance and am so sorry to hear about Steve. I will be in DC in June to honor my husband, John Grounds, so also eventually was taken by his 2 tours in Vietnam with heart disease and intraductal cholangiocarcinomma. This war effected a lot of my classmates, friends, and family. You will never by forgotten and I am grateful to all who served Welcome Home and Rest In Peace all of you,
