|Recognition Of Past Friends - 4|
Ralph Pruitt (1957)
|As I reached a personal "milestone" today|
by turning 67 years of age ... I wish to
look back and remember some old friends
from MHS who have passed on. Folks like
Cletus Perdue and Dr. Lloyd Lawrence come
to mind first because they were also friends
of mine from the Jones Creek area. I also
feel sad about Homer Handy and Rip Moser ...
both of the Class of '56 ... who passed on
at age 66. There are many that I most like-
ly do not know about ... but if they were
members of the Class of '57 or the Class
of '56 ... they deserve to be recognized.
My plans are to hopefully live until the
next 'Old Dawgs reunion and be in attend-
ance. Hopefully there will be a large turn
out for the Class of 1957. So if you can
possibly attend ... BE THERE.
