Strangest coincidence in a LONG time: I just went looking for Jethro through some of our schoolmates from Suffolk, Va. last week, and here I find out he passed away Jan. 3. His mother, Anona, and my mother were first cousins, and Jethro was therefore my third cousin. We were in the same class in the first grade at George Mason Elem. School in Suffolk. My family moved to Franklin, Va. when I was 12, and I completely lost track of Jethro. My deepest sympathy to his family.

In good memories of deployment in the Viet Nam and Korea as we were officers(America and Korean), you were a great international gentleman.

Will miss Jay in our Sunday School class. Always had the sweetest sincere prayers. I am sure Mike was the first to meet him when he entered heaven's gates. Prayers are with Pat and her family.
