To the family of James De Vries,
James was my journalism student at Newton High School in 1969-1970. I remember him well because he excelled in writing and had a great youthful mind.
I was very saddened to read about his passing and I send my deepest condolence from Iowa City where James and I caught up while he was at the University of Iowa and I was then teaching journalism at West High School.
Ben Van Zante, retired.
