Comments: Hi All,

Wow, it’s been along time since I have heard your names. It was nice. I live in Crawford, Georgia just outside of Athens, you know home of the Bull Dogs. My husband of 34 years passed away in December 2007. It is difficult sometimes, but God is faithful. We have one son, John, Jr. and a new grandbaby on the way in October. I also have 4 adopted grandchildren. They are all great children. Oh yes, and I have 3 dogs and one cat.

I work at a church as their Office Manager part time. I love it! Would love to hear more about you all.

Comments: Hi all;

Update. I’m now teaching part time at both the Tarpon Campus of St. Petersburg College and at the Dade city Campus of Pasco Hernando Community College. My main job at the moment is taking care of my mother who has health problems, thus the part time teaching.

Comments: Need to update email address. I sold the other website so will use Yahoo email now as primary email. The new owner of that site asked me to remain as a columnist and freelance writer, which is a lot more fun than running the business. I now have time to develop my speaking career. Gotta have something to do as I get older and older. Might go back to school and get my Masters degree in Organizational Psychology, just for the fun of it. (I know that sounds weird, but I think that ‘stuff’ is so interesting). Human motivation is amazing to me, which feeds my motivational speaking topics. 🙂

My youngest, (son) is on his 3rd deployment, and next month going with my baby daughter to England to celebrate her 30th birthday. Hubby and I are caring for our last surviving parent (94) who is in the final stage of Alzheimer’s disease. Other than that not much else is new.

Would love to hear from anyone who might remember me from GHS Class of 1971.

May God Bless You Always,

Roberta Lashua

Comments: Linda, I was so tickled to see your message. I don’t have an e-mail address (talk about not being up to date technology-wise), and soon I won’t have access to a computer. Anyway, you could snail mail me at 357 Alexander St. Apt. 30, Rochester, NY 14607. (As could anyone else who reads this. But who would want to? Although, it would be nice to hear from Bob Yarnell.) I hope your health continues to improve and you can find the time to write. Chris

Comments: GHS seems a world and a lifetime away. I’ve done many things but accomplished very little, I’m sorry to say. My one quality that has never faltered is my curiousity–and I’m curious to find out how my classmates’ lives turned out, especially Linda Dachsteiner and Vickie Stocker. Looking back, I realize that at times I was insufferable; my apologies to those who had to put up with my overblown ego.

Comments: This is way too scary, finding this site just before the reunion. Bev, Liz, anybody send me more details of when and where the reunion will be please? Hope you don’t mind that I didn’t actually get to graduate with you (thank Durden for that). I really do think about my Gulf High School days quite often and wonder where you are and what you’re up to. Very nice tribute to Roger Fussell at the school site. I was in DC last summer and looked up his name on the Wall. I remember very vividly the impact his death had on Joe (Gause). If you’re having trouble locating others, there are a few registered with, but I’m sure you’ve checked that out already. Has anyboody seen Alma Lou? WRITE BACK!
