  4. Jim and I met one another as we worked to make our country’s space program a success. I remember Jim as a very quiet, thoughtful person, and I enjoyed the times that we spent together back in the heyday of our country’s manned spaceflight program. My prayers and condolences to the Brudos family. Jim – I’ll see you again when I have crossed the bar and we’ll relive the fun times we had together.
