School Story:

Great Friends, Good Times! Especially the "Pre-Tech" classes/course tested for 1 year only, I'm sure due mostly to having the same Students in a 4 period block each Day. Too Much Fun!!! Some of our Students that I can remember most in this "Pre-Tech" test Course are: Scott Murry, Chad Perkins, Dee Higley, Chipper Durst, sorry there were many more but 40+ years ago comes with some memory loss...... I remember most, Chad Perkins & Scott Murray due we were such close friends and had played all Sports together as well. Still have stayed in touch with Chad & Scott to current Day with exception of a Huge Heart Felt Loss of Chad after His Very Strong/Difficult fight with Cancer. I not only lost a Great lifetime friend, also very near as a Brother type bond. To add 1 more thought, I certainly hope that Basketball Coach-then, Marcus Garrett has or will be held accountable in some way for how he mis-handled the situation with Bob Moss & Myself. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed and cared very much for our Classmates & the numerous+++ friendships made at C.H.S. Thankful for that Very, Very Much Still.................................Thanks Gang ! ! ! !

Hi Gary, again I just want to take the opportunity to wish you a very enjoyable, fun and safe birthday. Also I want to share with you how often I reminisce back to the days of us playing Little League baseball on the same team for 4 years. We had a great team and all of our teammates got along fantastic with giving much credit to your father which I greatly respected in more ways than one. He had that special touch and the best way to get the buy in from the players on our team which also everyone of us on the team got along very well which really helped make us a successful championship team the last two years we played. Your dad had the patience the knowledge and a unique way to get the buy in from every player on our team to perform and do what they needed to do in their specific positions to make a well rounded team with awesome team effort. Yes, I still remember all of the barbecues we had in your driveway as a team, your dad standing over the hot grill cooking hot dogs and hamburgers for all of us. He was definitely a prime example of a father, coach and all around great guy. I still have 3 or 4 baseballs I kept from different games that I pitched either shutouts or no hitters, that our entire team signed for me including your dad my Little League baseball hero coach; H. Gene Fisher. He donated hours and hours of his time to help so many of us succeed. I often thought how can I possibly repay all those hours that he & other coaches I had, donated for free to be of great help to our entire team & myself. I finally came up with the idea that several years ago I would help my youngest Son coach my grandson in little league basketball and baseball in my own personal way of donating my time and repaying those that coached me through the years. Gary, you have been a great friend clear back from 9 years old when we first met and played little league baseball to current and I wish everything of the best for you and your family. That you will have a very nice birthday today, take care of yourself and your family. Best wishes always, John Thomas ~ It also would be great to see you again sooner than later but we may have to wait until our next class reunion wherever and when it may be. Regards & Best Wishes, J.T.
