I am so sorry to hear about Col. Munday. He was one of our favorite people at the Branch Library on Hunter AAF. When the Library was closed in 1995, the staff moved to Fort Stewart. We saw him one time at the Stewart Library. We loved and admired him. Rest in Peace kind man. We miss you.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. I can't exactly understand how you feel, but our Heavenly Father Jehovah does, and he will give you the strength to endure. May the wonderful memories you have of Col. James bring you comfort and the words found at Isaiah 41:13 where God says he is grasping your right hand, the one saying do not be afraid I will help you during this difficult time. Please go to jw.org if you have any questions about what happens to our loved ones we lose in death.

S. Love, , Ga.

My prayers and thoughts are with your family. Mike passed away in 2000.

Uncle Stan Was A Very Interesteing man. I never had the pleasure of meeting him but spoke on the phone several times with him he always had a story. He looks so much like my Grandfather ( his brother) Gilbert S Munday. I just recently discovered he was still alive while working on my family tree. So Gad I got to hear some of his interesting story's. Sure will miss our talks. Rest In Peace Uncle Stan You Will Be Missed. Tell Grandpa & Dad I Love Them for me. ?? Jackie Munday

Far to often in today's society we use the word Hero in an attempt to show gratitude to someone whom we think has accomplished an extraordinary deed. This is because we want to demonstrate our gratitude to them in a meaningful way. Jim is the real thing. He and his generation saved the world and they are truly Heros. Thank You for your service Sir and may God bless the family, friends and Comrades he leaves behind.

I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put in end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.
