Comments

As of 1/19 we have returned to Tennessee, just outside Nashville after a 5 year "vacation" in Arizona.
Immediately after college I was invited to become a member of the U.S. Army. Transferred into the Air National Guard, then went back into the Air Force to fly. My first jet instructor was John Nichols. I flew F-100's, KC-97's, and C-130's. Worked at Friendly Chevrolet in Dallas as sales manager and pilot for the owner. I then went to fly for Southwest Airlines for 25 years. We've moved 18 times in 22 years (I know there's a Utopia somewhere!!). I have a beautiful wife, Judy, 4 children and 9 grandchildren between us. Golf is my primary hobby and love family, boating and traveling in motor coach. Still like to set my hair on fire and act well beneath my age. I did give up the motorcycles at 66.

School Story

During the morning PA Mr. McBrayer announced 4 names, including mine, who would no longer have 6th period athletics for practice on the golf team. Seems Stoney Cayce had witnessed the four emerging from an "adult" beverage store the previous day when they were supposed to be at practice.

If ever there was a high school hero and leader it was Jake. Not only was he a terrific football player, he excelled in academics and never allowed his popularity to become conceit. Memories of him from those days are vivid from his athletic prowess on the football field, to his Hi-Y basketball skills, to crashing his beautiful Corvette. He became a devoted husband and father and found success in all he did throughout life. I'm proud to have had the opportunity to call him friend and he will be sorely missed by many.

Terrific memories of Judy. Her smile and her and her enthusiasm were both contagious and I believe she was on everyone's favorites lists. How wonderful it is to recall those days so many years ago - from pep rallies to ballgames, she was the consummate cheerleader. So very sorry to hear that her last years were so unpleasant and I know many will miss her.

Bigger toys - too many.

Home after wasting everything on toys. A little paint should do it.
