Lunch at Bea’s

Hope Lytle and W.L. Goodman are planning lunch gathering at Bea’s on Wednesday, Oct 22nd, around 1:00 p.m.  They are inviting all classmates and their significant others.  Please let W.L. know if you plan on attending at 421-3301 or

50th Reunion

We are just a year out.

Word of mouth is really important in that all do not have e-mail and Facebook.

Rest assured we will use mail to communicate with those for which we have only mailing addresses.

Rest assured we will call every classmate for which we only have a phone number.

Anybody interested?

Message from Linda Lewis Crossley

Our eldest son Chris Crossley was tragically killed this past Sat. (Sept 27th) when he was walking and a truck hit him.  We are leaving tomorrow for CA as his dad will preach the funeral.  Chris had two children, Eric age 22, married to Adrianne with one child Mary age 4 and Emily age 16 who lives with us and has since she was 5.  Please ask my class to keep my family in their  prayers as this is a horrible thing we’re going through.  Thanks, Linda Lewis Crossley

Stories and Information about Mary Alice

Received the following e-mail from John Bevilaqua:


Hope all is well with you. I am working diligently on the book about Mary Alice and could use some help on the high school section. Any comments or stories you could share would be greatly appreciated.

Some questions that could contain interesting answers include:

  • Can you remember any real “highlight” moments about Mary Alice ?
  • What do you remember about her personality ?
  • Who were her “best friends” in high school?
  • Do you remember any of her boyfriends?
  • In what activities or clubs did Mary Alice participate?
  • Do you remember anything about her love of PE and gym class? If so, what?
  • Did you and other boys consider her “sexy” in high school?
  • Were you aware of her modeling career while in high school?
  • What are the most important memories you have of Mary Alice from high school?

Bob, thank you for your help. I am committed to getting this book finished and published before the end of the year. I intend to include photos of Mary Alice sprinkled throughout the book along with interesting stories about her and how she lived her life.

The last part of the book will be a tribute to her inspirational battle against cancer and I know you and Mary Alice talked about this many times because of your situation with your wife. If you have any thoughts on this topic I would appreciate those as well. Mary Alice always loved trying to help others cope with cancer and I think she provided a lot of inspiration to a lot of people.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best wishes,
John Bevilaqua
