ONE OF THE VERY LAST (?) PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN OF JIM AND MARY REEVES TOGETHER

   

   

 

On the cover of issue No. 99 of the fan club magazine is a very special picture. Jim had just finished playing golf. Mary, his wife, drove the buggy. It was believed to be one of two taken of Jim on the day Jim flew to Batesville, Arkansas, on July 30, 1964, but info on the internet informed that Jim had not played golf that day, and wore different colored clothing. Probably, this picture has been taken a few days before July 30th. It was mentioned Jim and Dean had dinner with Dean's family and pictures were taken, the very last pictures of them, and that could well have been as Dean lived in Arkansas till the age of 12. Barbara Manuel, Dean's widow has never been informed by Dean's relatives that these pictures exist. 

This picture is courtesy by Ms Connie Sanders. Another picture of Jim, taken shortly before or after this one, has been put by Ms Saunders  at an eBay auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=52472&item=3830256632&rd=1 :  

The magazine has been dedicated to the 40th anniversary and features an article about the air crash and the aftermath  And of course the usual CD and DVD album reviews.
