Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   We have yet another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter today.

  From Susie Overton Jones ('63) of AL - 02/11/07 - "Sad news":

..... In reading today's Daily Press I saw that one of the class of '63 had passed away. The obituary is below.  Seems so sad that we are losing so many of our classmates.....

   I'm so sorry to hear this, Susie.  I read this notice early this morning, and as so often happens, it failed to register with me.  Thank you so much for letting us know.

From the Daily Press - 02/11/07:

Mr. Roland,

I am so sorry to hear about Jackie. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, Darrell and James. It has been a couple of years since I talked to Jackie. We went to school together and I lived in your house on 54th St. I am sure you remember my mother, Alda Garner. May God be with you and your family.
