Thank you, Jeanne for telling us about Nancy Lyons' passing.  I was friends with Nancy in elementary school, and so enjoyed seeing her at the 50th reunion.  She was a quiet girl, but when you got to know her she was fun, and full of life.  I am saddened to hear that she is gone.

I will keep them in my heart and memory. Love to all stay well .

The new normal caused by Covid hasn't stopped the North Texas Class of 65 members from getting together. In May, yours truly met in Grapevine and had breakfast with Bill Polk and his precious wife before Bill and I headed down to Lake Livingston to visit with Jim Cunningham and Beth at their lake house. In August, I found that Mike Bell has lived witin 10 minutes of my house for the last 20 years. We went fishing together at my fishing lease in Commanche County and enjoyed catching up. Last week, Mike and his lovely wife Ellen had me over for dinner. It was a special treat to meet and get to know Ellen. Mike is one lucky guy. Mike and Ellen will celebrate their 31st anniversary this year. Yesterday I met my dear friends Jeanne Spencer Adams and husband, Johnny, in Rockwall. We all had lunch with Joanna Hinton Garrett and her husband Bill at Olive Garden in Rockwall. Joanna had come to Rowlett to see her doctor. Even with the health issues Joanna is dealing with,she is the same beautiful and charming lady she has always been. We had a great time together. So the point is this: if you are sensible in protecting yourself taking sensible precautions to avoid being exposed to Covid you can still enjoy life with your friends and family.

Jeanne Spencer (Adams)

Amen, brother Ben!  We had an impromptu meeting when we realized Joanna's doctor was in Rockwall, not far from me.  So we talked and decided we should all meet and catch up!  We had a wonderful time at Olive Garden visiting, eating soup and salad and breadsticks and just talking and laughing again.  Benny was so sweet to bring Joanna and me beautiful orchid plants, and the three guys talked about hobbies and interests, including guns and fishing and writing.  We were so busy talking we didn't get a group shot, but here are a couple Johnny took.  (Next time we'll get a group shot.)  

So Benny's right, be careful always, but get out and enjoy life!  heart

Ben & Jeanne and any other of our classmates. That sounds like such a wonderful gathering of friends you had in Rockwall, plus Bennie's reconnection with classmates on previous occasions. Ed & I so enjoyed Jeanne & John's visit last year when they were in our area. If any of you are in the hill country and near Boerne we would love to see you.

Yesterday we gathered to celebrate the life of Kay Carbo.  There were many people there, including a few from Waltrip Class of 65.  She had a very special family and Ben put together a beautiful service.  God bless you all!   Pictured left to right are Benny Carbo, Bill Polk, Jeanne Spencer Adams, Carol Faulkenberry Harris, Pat Williford Mannix, and Mike Bell.  Present but not pictured was also Jim Cunningham.

Just got word that James Cunningham (Jimmy), died this afternoon. He struggled for so many years so praying that he is at peace and Beth and family are sustained by wonderful memories.

My dear longtime friend, Jim Cunningham, passed away peacefully in his sleep last night at home after spending Thanksgiving with his family which he adored. Jim had suffered from heart disease for over twenty years and it has been by God's grace that he survived long enough to see his family grow up to be his pride and joy.
Beth will have a celebration of his life,the date yet to be determined. Please join me in prayer for Beth and the family

This has been a challenging year for all of us, especially those who have lost loved ones. But be of good cheer, we still have much to celebrate: the birth of our Saviour, love of family and friends and God's promise to heal our land if we call upon His name for deliverance. So put up your tree, wrap presents for you loved ones and hang the stockings with care. Then await the miracle of Christmas. Oh, and don't miss the Christmas Star appearing in the lower west horizon after dark on December 21st.

"It came upon a midnight clear, that glorious time of old. Peace, goodwill toward man." With daughter's family watching the Christmas Star last night.

We could see it from about 6-7 but then it got cloudy.

Yes, mine is in the attic somewhere with other treasures!

I still have my program, too. But that's about all.  I have my Dad's college program from when he received his first degree at Cape Girardeau, MO.  It appears he possibly graduated with some relatives of Rush Limbaugh.  

I lost my high school ring and my letters in bowling and the rifle team when I gave them to my prom date.  She promised to "give me something she had never given to any other boy".  Gave me her very first time kiss and then the flu.  Never saw her or my stuff again.  I'm still evaluating the trade...

Robert (Ben) Carbo

I don't know how much of this stuff you post is true, but it is pretty funny nonetheless. If you are telling the truth, well, bless your heart. I lost my senior ring and wedding ring in Vietnam. Actually I didn't lose them they were stolen by the very people we were sent there to help.

01/04/21 05:48 PM #2379    


Roger Felton

Well, Bennie, at my age I'm not sure how much is true or not, LOL.  Actually, that story was true.  Still feel bad I can't remember that gal's name, daggnabbitt, or I'd go look her up and get my stuff back.

Ben, I am so sorry to hear about your precious Kay.  She had to have been a terrific woman from what I learned about her on the forum.  Tommy Wade lost his lovely wife, Betty, this December, also.

Robert (Ben) Carbo

Thanks Roger. I have been keeping up with Tommy on facebook and ocaasionally offer encouragement to him. Life is very different when you lose your life partner, but I am learning how day by day with the help of family and friends. Keep up the posts on class website. They make my day.
