Guestbook

I knew Doc and Judy when I was a kid. Many years later, in 1977 I got out of the military during a blizzard in Ohio. During the storm I went around putting in apps, one of which was at J-M. I was informed that Doc remembered me from childhood and became the reference used that got me my job. He was the main person who started my longtime civilian career. I will always remember his act of kindness for me.

I am so very sorry to learn of Doc's passing. Our family spent so much time with yours when I was younger. He was a very kind person. I just remember him coming to get me when dad was rushed to the hospital, and I woke up at the Pierce house in 1981. I still have pictures from the beach when Mark and I were 4 and 5. All good memories. Peace and comfort to you all.
