James R. Blair



Life is too short to wake up with regrets So, cherish every waking moment you have with the people you love. Forget about things you have no control over. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy. They just promised it would be worth it.

Born in High Point, North Carolina, on December 31, 1947, Jim served in the United States Air Force for seven years and retired from Robins Air Force Base after thirty-five years of civil service.
