      What a special and very interesting Dad you will have to remember. As a Veterans Advocate in
      Glenwood I got to know your Dad. He was another fine example of the “Greatest Generation” A
      proud American and Veteran. God Bless you all in the days that lie ahead.

    Sorry for your loss. I can guess James was a nice man. I am the 70 year-old granddaughter of Joseph Merril Munsinger, Millie Madison’s cousin. Luther Munsinger was my father, and he enjoyed visiting Mille when she was in the Sidney nursing home where I got to meet her, too. She had such a wonderful smile; Dad really loved visiting with her.. We share your loss of another of those of the “Greatest Generation.”
