I just spoke with Daddy and Miss Martha and have been receiving calls all day about the Sunday service that punctuated the 45th reunion of the West Point High School Class of 1964.
It seems I may have missed the best part of the weekend. Miss Martha said she was so moved she was shaking…especially after Rev. Eddie Gandy’s wonderful message, Hugh Harris’ (and Lonnie Peeples’ granddaughter’s skit), Mack and Brenda’s meaningful comments, Marguerite and Margaret’s poignant memories, the music, and, of course, Robert Craig’s laid back seemingly effortless leadership. I heard someone has it on video and you can bet I’m finding it!
My favorite line of all times is from the movie “The Wedding Date” where he says, “I would have missed you if I’d never known you.” I feel that way about the Class of ’64.
They were my role models. I was in awe of them. Iwanted to be like the classy women, and had crushes on at least six of the men, no make that five. Somehow, I sense I was destined to ride in their shadow.
Having said all this, I have a proposal. Why don’t we do our 50th together? Think about it. We could straddle the years somehow. And let Barbara, Kyle, and Beth plan it. Yeah!
