Walk, Don't Run
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This song brings back to me the clearest memory from early 1963. My date
had stopped to get gas and I was
sitting in his car waiting while he went inside to pay (remember those days?), and this song came on his radio. And of course
I remember what I was wearing, Jimmy-Jimmy - my waaay cool olive green corduroy shirt-waist dress and my Bass Weejuns.
I just can't remember Fire Station #1!
A very Happy Birthday today to Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA!

OH, David! This batch is really beautiful! Thanks so much!
From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 03/21/05:
Thanks, Sarah Sugah! It
still chokes me up to even think about it! I thought by now my chances of
finding anyone who knew
my daddy were very slim indeed.
We not only have his boots,
but his complete uniforms, and medals, and the wartime letters he wrote, and a
other things. The uniforms were divided among my sons.
Keep looking, Miss Sarah - you may find someone who knew your father, too!
"How I do it?!?" You don't want to know, trust me! WILD GIGGLES!!!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 03/22/05:
Oh, Joe! I think I was
soooo excited, that I may not have made that part of the story clear! Mr.
Dickens is having his
daughter Xerox the letter, but he will keep that copy just for safekeeping. He's letting me borrow the original! We'll make
copies for everyone ourselves. He said a copy just isn't the same as the original, and he wanted Major Buckley's daughters
to see and touch and hold and read the original. How incredible is that?!?
OH, wouldn't it be marvelous
if we heard from more of those who knew my daddy?!? And of course, I'll
have you to thank
for that, too - but there just aren't words for that, Adonis. There's only, "Thank you!"
From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 03/22/05:
Thank you, Ron! It was
indeed super! I was not having a good day yesterday, and because
that's quite rare, and because
I don't have a good poker face, everyone I encountered all day said, "What's WRONG?!?" And of course, I had no answer
for that; there was no answer. There was no reason and no answer.
Then that amazing telephone
call came, and when at last with tears streaming down my face I hung up the
phone, my sweet
17-year old daughter came to me and hugged me, and said, "See how much Heavenly Father loves you?"
And if I'm able to pass along
any such blessings to any of y'all in any way at all, I'm very grateful to have
that honor and privilege.
Thanks again, Ronnie!
From Debby Fink Golden ('65) of MA - 03/22/05:
My husband and I went to Normandy several years ago when we were in France. We toured the museum and
spent some time on the beach where the monument was erected. It was respectfully very quiet and very sad
to realize the number of soldiers who perished in the landing.
Debby Fink Golden
What an awe-inspiring time that must have been for you, Debby! How truly
wonderful! Thank you
for sharing that!
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 03/22/04:
Hi Carol, I just wanted to say it was
great to hear from Jim Hines ('64 - of Northern VA). I always thought he
was one of the nicest guys in our class. He was nice to everyone, not just the popular people. It confirms my thoughts
that musicians are wonderful...
Also I am so excited and happy for
you that you found a person who served with your father. That is just
and I know how happy that made you. Because of the SITE I have reconnected with several old friends and we are
keeping in touch. Keep up the good work, Love, Jean
Isn't that great that he found us?? You're absolutely right about Jim!
He was a delightful boy, and he's
obviously still a sweetie!
Yes, you could probably feel my excitement from several states away! Thanks for sharing my joy!
The main purpose
of the site was originally to reconnect old friends. Anytime I hear of
that happening, it gives me such
overwhelming happiness! That is just so special!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 03/22/05:
Oh, Joe! How precious! Thanks so much!
I completed the new Checkmate page:
Well, I still didn't finish everything, but I did come closer!
Y'all take care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER!
Love to all, Carol
