James Collins........He was too busy having too much fun and talking to everybody to fill out his questionaire! I'll get some
more information from him later. I do know from the few times that I have talked to him, that he has a very good memory of
his teachers and classmates. He has helped me identify some of the kids in the class picture and locate people. He was the
one responsible for getting Tim Hull to the get-together.
James is getting ready to celebrate his 25th wedding anniversary
and he works for GM.
