Linda and I never knew each other while at Central.  We met at FlightSafety, Int'l working together, Linda in Graphic Arts and me in Software Systems.  Every year we went to the Holland Hall book sale and brought as many books as we could carry.  She was a delight to be around and talk to.  I miss her very much.  She had such an uplifting spirit.  Miss you girlfriend.

I'm sorry Clyde passed away so young.  We had several classes together and I enjoyed his company.  He had a quiet unassuming personality.  I wish he could have come to the 50th reunion.

Although Clyde and I were neighbors, classmates, and wrestling mates,
I didn't know him that well.  I always admired his quite determination and kindness to others.  To his family, I offer my condolences and hope that I will see him later as I know he has gone to a place (heaven) where I want to join him.  God Bless you Clyde.

Trish and I had many classes together.  We went to Barnard Elementary and Wilson Junior High before going to Central.  In addition her father was my dentist.  I'm saddened to learn of her death.  Rest in peace Trish.
 
From Betty Kidwell Evans on August 27th, 2013
Trish and I went to Barnard Elementary, Wilson Jr. High and then Central High School together and remained best friends throughout that entire time. We took dancing at Skilley's together and practiced in her basement because she had all of the recent records. I also remember the times before we both got contact lenses when we would take turns putting on our glasses at the bus stop so we could see which one was coming and then immediately whip them off hoping that no one saw us. We spent many hours on the phone until I was going to get grounded if I talked any longer. Trish and I stayed in contact for many years.  I tried multiple times to reach her during this spring in hopes of reuniting and was so very sad to see that she had passed away.  If anyone knows more information, please let me know.

I fondly remember the several times that Sheldon and I worked together on class plays and the Daze.  I also remember when we finished a play one Friday evening, we went to someone's home for an after party and Sheldon, being the good Jewish boy he was, walked to the party!  He was one of my favorite friends.  Enjoyed seeing him so much at recent reunions.
