Dear Jim's relatives:

Jim was one of my BEST students at TMI. Never a problem! He was in my physics & advanced math classes which I taught. One of my former teachers from grammar school said. "You will always remember the GOOD ones & the BAD ones." I remember Jim as one of the very GOOD ones. Reading his obituary regarding his careers, (perhaps/maybe), I had a SMALL influence on his life. (???)
About every weekend I drove down to Chattanooga. I remember once I dropped Jim off at his home in Cleveland.

I extend my sincere sympathy & condolence for you loss.

(Captain) Glenn A. Mercer, Instructor
