Starr, we are so terribly sorry to hear of Jim's passing. We will soon be married 52 years and we were talking just the other day about F. E. Warren AFB and Cheyenne, WY, and of course, thinking of you and Jim. We live on Norris Lake in East Tennessee. We will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you all. So sorry we have lost touch over all of these years. Affectionately, Brenda and Jim Dossett
