Weslaco Memories

James, I've never forgotten that your life was taken in Vietnam. You had so much to live for and your loss was tragic, just as are all lives lost in war. We had one date long before you married your beautiful wife. In a way you were a small part of my life. My heart goes out to your family who have grieved your loss for so long.
