I am proud to be a friend of Emmett and happy to have played with him on the Rams. He was a year behind as I was class of 1952 and Emmett was class of 1953. Emmett was the "real deal." H eas a fine half back and all guts. His size was small, but he was always one of the largest men on the field. Emmett was a dedicated husband and father; his family was everything to him, and he was so very proud of his wife and daughter.

I look forward to being with Emmett and his family in God's "peaceable kingdom" in the future.

Roland maybe eleven of us will make it to Ninety. I'm closing in, you are a little closer. Maybe Coach Badgett can still use us. With you blocking for me we would be good for 5 yards every play. Big Bill Edison played tackle in front of me and on third and 1 or 2, I would run right behind him and grab his hip pad with my left hand. We made the first down 90% of the tine. You will have to compete witn Bill, he is already there. Ward '54

Happy Birthday Roland. Hope you have a great day. I know you don't know me, but I remember you. I was in the 6th grade when you graduated. Donald Thompson was my brother, and I was in school with Billy. I was on the practice field with him, but I was a couple years younger and never actually played with him.
