I am so sorry to hear of our lost of my friend and class mate, James Weaver. Always a friend to everybody thru High School. James is one of the best guys I ever knew in my life time. Two months older than I, I have known him all of my life. Had not seen him since we left High School and I choose the Army and he choose the Air Force.. Did get a chance to talk to him once after he moved to Georgia, about old times. So glad that God gave me the opportunity to grow up with such a great gentleman. My sincere condolences to the family and all the other friends of this great gentleman. May you rest in peace until we meet again.
