HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET
All class members are invited to submit comments

Please direct submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello members of the CHS Class
of 64. What a wonderful time we had in the late summer as about 70 class
members and spouses celebrated our 60 birthday year together! It was a fun
and nostalgic evening and it was nice hearing brief updates on each class
member there, and to share e-mails from several more living a long way off!
We decided, in additional to memorials at the
death of class members, to try to also acknowlege the death of class member
spouses. Please keep Bill Maddox or Ann Johnson posted in this regard.
We also decided to provide a plaque in memory of
our classmate, Jimmy Taylor, who was the first Carroll County native killed
in Vietnam. (Jimmy was born 9/14/1946 and KIA in Vietnam 10/25/1966. He is
buried in Abilene Baptist Church cemetery on Highway 113.) The plaque is
$300. and will go on the Wall of Honor at the Carroll County Veterans
Memorial Park. (See info below from Bill Maddox.)
We also sent a memorial donation from the class
to the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children when Jan Robinson Bell's young
grandson, Cooper Bell, recently died of an inoperable malignant brain
Some of you already made contributions toward the plaque/memorials at the
recent party. I'd like to encourage all of you to be a part of these
memorials (both for Jimmy Taylor and ongoing class memorials) by making a
contribution to the Class Fund -- mail to:
74 Hampton Way
Carrollton, GA 30116
Thanks for your help, and thanks for the continued camaraderie of a great
group of childhood friends!
(Bill's note follows.)

I didn't know about Janice. I am copying your message to the
classmates on my address book. If you have any other addresses, I am sure
they would like to know. Is the visitation before the service? Thanks, Pat,

For those of you who missed
it, there was a nice article with pictures on the front
page of the July 4th Carrollton paper honoring our
classmate Jimmy Taylor, who was the first American
soldier from Carroll County killed in action in Vietnam
The article was in regard
to the engraved stone memorial plaque that you, his
classmates, generously provided to honor our fallen
classmate at the young age of 20. I have visited and
looked up Jimmy's name on the Vietnam Wall in Washington
D.C. several times, and am glad that we now have the
relatively new Veterans Memorial Park right here in
Carrollton. Thanks to those classmates who helped
financially sponsor the memorial and special thanks to
Bill Maddox for coordinating the project!
We have an on-going
memorial fund from which we send (as the CHS Class of
'64) flowers or a memorial gift at the death of a
classmate or spouse. Anyone who wishes to make a
contribution to this fund should mail a check (CHS Class
of '64 Memorial Fund) to Bill Maddox, 74 Hampton Way,
Carrollton, GA 30116.
Hope you are all having a

I am sending a request for prayer for Brenda Hubbard Burks. She went to the
emergency room about a
week ago, dizzy and out of breath. X-rays showed spots on her lungs. The
report came back showing cancer in her breast, lungs, and in her
lymph nodes. It is stage IV - fast spreading. She began chemotherapy
today. Some friends who have talked to her let me know about her
condition, and we thought a request for prayer and support by sending cards
could certainly help her. Her address is
778 New Hope Rd. Carrollton, GA 30117. Our friends are so special.
Please be thinking of her husband, Willard, and her family, too.
