Thanks, Sis, for thinking of your classmates at this busy, busy time of year.  You made my day with your good wishes and refreshed my thoughts of good times and good people.

Merry Christmas to my 1960 Classmates. May each of you have a very Happy and helathy New Year. It is hard to believe we are coming up on our 60th Reunion this summer.

A beautiful, heartfelt message for moving the reunion to 2021 -- I thank you for the thoughtfulness and look forward to a great and safe reunion.

Dear Shirley,

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your wise and thoughtful decision to postpone our 60th reunion until 2021! Denzel and I had already made the decision that we would not be able to attend because of our ages and medical issues. Most of our classmates were probably facing these same  concerns because of COVID-19. It would have broken my heart to miss our reunion. Now I feel so relieved and am looking forward to being with our special classmates in 2021. Until then, my prayer is that God will bless our RCHS Class of 1960 and our families with good health and ALL that makes us happy.

With lots of love and many warm hugs,

Beth ❤️

Dear Classmates,

While virtual is necessary at present, we do long for real church gatherings.  I miss the group Bible studies.  Other than Dr. Charles Stanley, a new found favorite, one Dr. Roy Lawson's video studies on Youtube have been worth the visit.  Just as our high school teachers were a definite "cut-above," my sister's favorite English professor, who send her in the direction to become an English teacher was this Dr. Lawson.  Watching his Biblical studies on Youtube titled "Joy with Roy," is reminescent of learning from our own excellent teachers at RCHS.  They certainly were cornerstones of the community.  We are blessed.

Wishing Gae a HAPPY BIRTHDAY (e a r l y) I think I was late in 2019.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAE, may you have many more to share with family and friends on the fishing banks of Georgia or is it deep sea fishing. I always enjoyed Reovista resturants "All the CATFISH you can eat". Marriage came and we got to camping out in Cherokee cooking "Rainbow Trout" each evening by the streams.  I miss those days, these golden years have quarantined us before the QUARANTINE. Health has slowed Bob and myself down. Plans are to be at the late Reunion in 2021.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY see you at the class reunion.  STAY SAFE and HEALTHY. Sis Chandler Hillman.

Agree, Gae.  The big test is this coming Saturday.  The Crimson Tide will be out for blood, coming so close to losing to unranked Mississippi.  By the way, through her ancestory work my wife, Demaris, just found out that she's a fourth cousin of Vince Dooley!  Jimmy

Fine man, Dooley, for kin folk.  I have a baby shower on the 17th for a new great-grandson expected this December --  however, the father and friends will be watching the game.  Winning cheers would be a good sound for all including the expected one and Demaris of Dooley ancestry.  Stay well!  Be Happy!

Many of you may have known Hogan Ivey.  He died recently at age 99.  His obituary is on-line.  He was my former boss as well as a friend and Joyce Ivey Dennard's uncle.  His love/knowledge of local history endeared me to him and his wife Mary and his brother Tom.  Truly fantastic people!

It's me again... Rather than send 40 emails, I am posting services for Kathrine Crawford here and all will be notified that there is a new post.  Visitation will be Sunday, July 25 at Scot Ward's in Conyers. Time 1:00 P.M. until 2:00 P.M.  Services will be held at 2:30 P.M. In the Green Meadows Gardens at 2:30 P.M

Prayers go out for this sweet family. Gae and Ron have hosted Spring Luncheons for our class for many years. Ms. Crawford always joined us for lunch with a sweet smile on her face. God needed another Angel and at 87 years old, took her home.

Just a short note, to say Coach McCord is at Magnolia House Assisted living in Conyers. I talked to Willa yesterday and she was telling me he has Alzheimer's and is in a wheelchair. He loves to have visitors. The Magnolia house is on Main Street across from Rockdale Citizen and next to Thai Restaurant.

I just left Coach McCord.  He looks good, very rested and smiling.  His wife, Willa, is having some health problems which prevent her from being able to care for him at this time.  His daughter, Paige, is running the ball for them. 
So you understand his good spirit, I will tell you in his words:  "When we moved in here (Magnolia House Assisted Living), I wasn't sure I would like it.  I worked in Conyers for so long that I know most of the folks here.  It's like being in another class year -- having a little fun before graduation."
Wishing many future blessings for everyone to go along with great memories.

I really do not know how to begin this message. Just a few minutes ago I learned that one of our favorite classmates, Gary McCullogh, has declined in health and is in hospice. Charlotte contacted Beth and advised that Gary is non responsive and they are just keeping him comfortable. His family is with him and needs our prayers. Charlotte doesn't feel like talking now but will keep us posted. So glad we have beautiful memories of visiting with Charlotte and Gary for many years in Dahlonega. Let's all send up prayers for this special family.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and can finally visit with your family. Love to everyone.

As I age my wishes and wants become prayers and needs -- so, rather than just wish, I am praying for the merriest Christmas and happiest New Year for my wonderful classmates and their families.  "God bless us, everyone!"

Happy New Year to all 1960 classmates. I hope this year will be less stressful than 2020 and 2021. I try to keep everyone up to date on Our friends from school. Unfortunately this news is not always happy events. Some of you probably know, Graham Pennington lost Maureen to cancer recently. Last week Coach McCord's son lost his battle with cancer. I understand the family is not telling Coach because of his fragile condition. Most of you probably remember Ricky Edge. He passed away in the last couple of weeks. Dewey Johnson, was married to Patsy Cochran. He passed over the weekend.  

We are the older generation we always talked about. How can that be!!!!!!  Wasn't it just a few years ago we left RCHS to spread our wings and follow our dreams? Stay safe sweet friends and live every day as if it's your last.


Love to all,

Shirley, I just want to thank you for keeping us informed on good and bad news. My heart is aching with Charlotte and going to the mountains will never be the same without our beloved Mayor. It is with sad heart also to hear about the others that we were acquainted with and their losses. 

I was wondering if there are any plans in the making for another reunion. I would love to see and visit with our classmates other than at a funeral. 

Thank you again Shirley and I also wish all our classmates a very happy and healthy 2022.

Love you all and may God bless.
