Officer Bennett and I were the closest of friends during our boyhood in Groveton, Texas. James and I last saw each other somewhere around 1967 when he went to serve in Vietnam. After all of these years I have finally come to reside in the city where James ended his watch back in September 1975. Over the years I have often thought of our close friendship and childhood together and I often feel that my friendship with James was a contributing factor to the type of positive lifethat I have been able to lead over the past 50 years. Rest well for you are not forgotten!!!
