Comments:

Work... have worked as a professional counselor in Florida and Georgia. I have given up hope regarding Mental Health Licensure in Hawaii. I refuse to return to school and take more hours just to meet their requirements.
Children... a son Benjamin was born 7/11/99 in Pensacola, Fla. He is presently attending the University of Georgia in Athens. Ben is majoring in Entomology (Bugs) and Biology as he is heading toward his Doctorate in that field.
Lucy, a daughter was born 2/1/02 in Pensacola, Fla. She is also attending UGA in Athens with her older brother. Both children receive the Zell Miller Scholarship as they have GPAs of 3.75 +. They obviously get their brains from their mother and my son gets his big mouth from his father. Lucy is a great organizer of time.
They are the joy of my life, as most of our children are. My kids are smart, good-looking, highly motivated children who love life and make their parents proud. I on the other hand am suffering the curse of Life in Hawaii. 30% less pay than the mainland and 30% higher cost of living. Do the math, not hard to figure out that work is a must and retirement will have to be put on hold. My oldest son is now in his Senior year at UGA. His specialty being Entomology makes the pursuit of a Masters and Doctorate doable. Apparently there is such a need for professionals in the field the schools that offer Doctorates employ the student as they go through the program. So I have promised Ben I will move to wherever he decides to go to school and help him if he desires. Life on the Big Island is great however I miss having old friends and the connections that are easy on the mainland. WE'LL SEE.

School Story:

In 1987 I ran into an old classmate at a store in Pensacola. She identified me and told me she knew me. I told her "lady leave me alone, I'm working and have no idea who you are". Now 18 years later I have forgotten her name again.

I didn't know John until high school. He was such a classy and friendly guy. A nice dresser and clean, healthy and charming presence. I can't remember a time where John was down or in a bad mood. He had a magnetic personality and attracted others to him. I regret not maintaining a relationship with him after our high school days ended. I will always remember his smile and exceptionial personality. I'll miss you John....rest in peace my brother....

Okay I guess I am severely out of the loop. We didn't really talk much after, believe it or not, the 2nd grade. I remember walking to your house from Lincoln Elementary. But not much more after that. I stayed in contact with many of the same people you did but for some reason not you. I thought Carol was one of the funniest and coolest people I've ever known. Her passing is heartbreaking for me. I guess I hold out hope we will all meet again. I'll call you Moreland even though my best memories of you were in Ms. Bock's Lucas and Carr's class. I wish you all the best. I'll miss Carol she was truly a light in the world. I'm sorry I'll just always know you as Beverly. Please tell me that IS your name. If not I'm gonna feel like a fool.

I remember Dave as a soft-spoken guy who didn't stand out in the crowd but was friendly and asserted himself well. He was always nice to me and always had a good word for everyone. I don't think he had any enemies and showed concern for everyone. I wish I could have gotten to know him better. Farewell,, my friend.

Judy, I knew you were a therapist from earlier posts. I'm wondering where you are practicing and what you specialize in. Hope I get to speak to you at the reunion. I have never attended a reunion but the 50th seems like a special one. Hope to see you there. Happy Birthday, see you in August.

Jeannie, I'm pleased to see you pop up out of nowhere on thr AHS website
Mo offense to Diana just seeing a different person is refreshing. I'm still in Hawaii but might be back in Atlanta by next month. If I do come home I'll see you at the reunion.. If not it just means I got tied up with committments out here. Take. Hope to see you in a few months.

Maury, Happy Birthday a few days late. I'm in Waikoloa Village on the Big Island of Hawaii with Bruce Graves. We're getting ready to open up a new medical practice that will encompass a Whole Health approach thus including mental health. It's exciting to beginning a new adventure at this age. Bruce and I are not throwing in the towel quite yet we both have several years of work in the future. We also have minor children getting ready to begin and continue college. I hope to see you next year at the 50th. It will be a special event. I hope a lot of folks who failed to attend, like Bruce and I will attend. Happy Birthday again. If you could send me the name of your daughter's book I would appreciate it. dg

Hi Johnnie, I guess with your profile on the AHS website you are going to hear from long lost people in your past life. You've had a very interesting career. Boise ID is not the town I thought you would end up in. Seeing how I was the first human being you knew outside your parents and mom and dad I should tell you what a great friend you were to me a a very young age. ON the other hand I was not a very nice guy. I thought I was all that. Its funny how life turns out. I've never attended a high school reunion. I might make it to the 50th, who knows. I'm living with my two children,ages 16 and 14 in Atlanta. I guess I'm going to have to work forever. I remember seeing your brother at your Mom's house years go. Probably during the 90's. I used to be in touch with your cousin Fred but haven't heard from him in several years. My mom is still alive living in a Care Center in St. Louis she is 92 years old. She's not in very good shape but I'm sure she would remember you. I hope you and Ann enjoy Idaho. What is Bodybuilding.com is that something to do with Herbalife. I don't know if you'll get this. Take care, remember Langdon Street.
