A tip of the graduation mortarboard to all those who contributed their time and efforts toward making the 2018 all years reunion the success that it was. It was an excellent venue, the band at times sounded better than the original groups and the food was superb (despite their forgetting the grits, cornbread, black eye peas and country ham!). Looking about the rooms, it was evident friendships do not fade with time as catching up conversations and laughter created the ambiance. Let’s do it again in three years!

I want to thank everyone in the reunion committee for arranging a wonderful time for all.  It was so good to see so many people in attendance.  I hope this can be done again in three years.   Thanks again!

My sincere thanks to all who had a part in making the 2018 Reunion a great success.  It was wonderful seeing such a good turnout.  I especially enjoyed seeing some of my old neighborhood friends and even some of my kinfolk.  Again, THANK YOU ALL

Frank,  We are from different grad. classes, but I read your post and I had to comment. I (unfortunately) was unable to attend the most recent gathering. In your well worded offering, you captured the essence of these reunions. They give us the chance to actually go back in time briefly. They are unique and priceless. Thank you for your well worded post. I look forward to meeting you at the next one.  Joe Wms.

I am so sorry to hear about Thomas Sheets. I lived three doors down from him and his sisters. I was closer to his sisters age. Is there anything on when his funeral will be?

                     DEATH OF CLSSMATE TOMMY SHEETS, CLASS of 1967:

The following was submitted yesterday to be posted on THE RAMS HOME PAGE:

  Walter Thomas "Tommy" Sheets, Class of '67, passed away today, Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta. Tommy's death was attributed to complications from pneumonia, for which he had been hospitalized last week. His family and several close friends were with him.
  After  graduating from CPHS in 1967, Tommy enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and was assigned duty in Vietnam, where he survived one of the deadliest battles of the war. Upon his return home, he joined the ranks of law enforcement as an officer with the College Park Police Department. Tommy advanced through the ranks to become the city's Chief of Police. He served as Chief for nine years and retired with honor in 1996.
   Tommy was born May 21, 1949. He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, David and Jennifer Sheets, and grandson, Logan, all of Rome, GA. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Barbara Kay Traynham Sheets.
  Tommy had requested there be neither service nor obituary upon his death. His family has given permission to notify his many friends here, via the Rams Page. From a personal perspective, Tommy and I had reconnected leading up to the Class of '67 Fifty-year Reunion last year. Try as I may, I couldn't convince him to attend, nor could his lifelong buddies Ronnie Jackson, Jack Hutcheson and others. Yet I was fortunate to have continued communicating with Tommy, who still was the same sweet and funny man we knew in high school. He truly made the world a better place.

Well, I'm still around.  If I had known I would last this long I would have changed my way of life.  I became a Preacher for the Evangelical Methodist Church and a District Supt of that organization, after I married at age 26.
Earlier this year I resigned my job as Dist. Supt. because of age and health.  My wife, Kathleen and I had three children, who in turn had two children each.  I had the great priviledge of marrying my daughter and her daughter and attending the granddaughters gaduation from Kansas State University.   She has now presented us with our first Great Grandaughter.  Her husband is a Henry County Policeman, so behave yourself if in Henry County.  I knew Stell Huie, thou not on a first name basis.  He was several years ahead of me.  I graduated in 1952.  So many people have passed away by now.  My Dear wife, Kathleen and I, have been married 58 years.
