"Aug 4th, 2021
I went to high school with Jim and sat next to him in English class in the 12th grade. I had just moved up to Cincinnati from Florida and Jim was one of the first people who I spoke to since English was our first class of the day. Jim showed me great kidness by talking to me and decided that my new nickname would be "Florida." Every day I would come into school Jim was sitting right next to me saying "Hi Florida." Towards the end of the school year Jim expressed how he had a long term goal to ride his bike up the nearby sidewalk outside of school during the short time when the seniors finished but the rest of the school was in session, waving at all those who could see him. Although I'm not completely certain I do strongly believe he achieved this goal. As the years passed I begain working my full time job at Fifth Third Bank downtown Cincinnati. I've been working there for over 15 years now and I would often have lunch on fountain square. Every year a group of veterans bring pictures of those remembered onto fountain square and I wanted to say here that I would always be there at that time, each year, and go see Jim's picture and remember him. I would remember his kidness, his high school goal, and how he called me "Florida.""

"I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry. I understand in theory only that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. All my love and respect. ogersteiner@yahoo.com"
