Yes! Attending Reunion

I lost my left leg in February 2010 because on an aneurysm, but I am coping well with a prosthesis. Had a great time visiting Jim and Demaris Miller at their new home in Washington, VA, a modest 150-acre estate. I also met Beth Hicks Ray there and had a great time talking about old times and our current lives. I would love to attend the next class get-together, if I can manage it.

School Story:

I dropped out of Rockdale HS in 1959 and attended Ga Tech. Completed my BS in Physics in 3 yrs with the highest GPA in the class. Won an NSF Fellowship and attended MIT. Received my PhD in Theoretical Physics in 1966 with a thesis on the production of the W Boson. The W was discovered at CERN in the 1980s and earned the finders Nobel Prizes.

Happy birthday, Beth. Maybe we can meet again at the Millers' BBQ in October. I may not be able to make it, because of my my increasing difficulties in driving moderate distances. But, it will be the Millers' last BBQ and I really want to make it. Joe Cornwell

Coach, I wish you a very happy birthday in a week. I enjoyed playing football under your guidance. Sorry I had to leave the team early because of eye problems and going to college early. Joe
