Sad News from Ron Lance

Dear Friends,
My brother, Eddie, left us peacefully today and is now with his Lord.  After a year long battle with Cancer and Kidney failure, his body just shut down.  Funeral arrangements have not been finalized.  He leaves in our care his wife Marineal ( Coach Farmer’s niece), three children, their spouses, and 8 grandchildren.  Eddie was 71 years old.
Thank you for your continuing prayers for his family,

Thoughts and Thank Yous from Bob Johnson

Looking forward to my trip back to Chattanooga next week.  Will see family, high school classmates, and  friends.  Will lunch at Bea’s where I served tables in the early and mid-60s.  Mike and Doug Bradshaw (Bea’s grandsons) with whom I served tables are still there after all these years, and the food is the same–great!  Thanks to WL and Lynne Goodman for their hospitality.  Also want to thank Bobby Byrd for being so willing to provide transportation.  Thanks to Lori Harless Grauso for spreading the word on lunch at Bea’s on the 9th.  Finally, thanks to those who responded to my request for feedback on the Class of ’65 Blogs and blast e-mails and to those who have indicated they will be at Bea’s on the 9th and/or The Central Connection luncheon on the 10th.
