Comments:

Am now age 80. I have not retired - am active in property management, forensic tax accounting, and publishing.

School Story:

My memories of high school are allmost all positive. Would I do some things differently if I had the chance? Only a fool would say no to that, but all in all life has been very good. My greatest rewards at Ashley came from being in the band - playing the trumpet - something I carried with me most of my life. I seemed to have been defined by my classmates for my trumpet playing.

Happy birthday, Daisy! I hope it has been a good one - and all the rest are better. I will never forget the fun times we had growing up in Gastonia and then on through Frank L Ashley High School. Best wishes always.

Jimmy Smith passed away last week.  Click on the Url  in the "In Memory Page" and it will take you to the funeral home's obituary.  About two years ago, right out of the blue, he started corresponding with me.  As it turns out he lived in Lexington, SC just a few miles from my sister in West Columbia.  I had full intentions of visiting with him, but circumstances and health problems (mine, not his) prevented me from getting to the Columbia area.  As you can see from the obituary, Jimmy led an exemplary life.  All of a sudden, about six months ago, he mentioned in an email that he had an appointment with an oncologist.  Having had major cancer surgery myself, it didn't concern me all that much because he had never talked (we had several phone conversations over the months) about having any problems.  But then there was a period of about six months that I heard nothing.  Next thing I know, one of his relatives sent the obituary via email.  When Jimmy and I talked, he often mentioned his love of our high school class and the great friendships that were formed. He was especially complimentary of the website - which he said enabled him to stay in touch. Jimmy was a good guy and we shalll miss him.

Okay, Bill - you got a birthday coming up so now you will be as old as me. I want to thank you for all the years of friendship and also let everyone know that you are one of the driving forces in this website. You have been a great help in keeping me posted, and therefore the rest of the class, with regard to the members of the class. I can't thank you enough. Best wishes to you and all your great family. It is people like the Forbes family that are what makes America great.

Ann, thanks for your generous contribution to maintaining the website. I also appreciate your kind note. It is a me to do this job. We have received a number of contributions that are going to keep this thing going for several more years. I have already renewed the website - keeping it free from outside advertisers, etc. Best wishes and thanks again.

Happy birthday, Sally. We all hope that you are well - and that today will be a great one for you. Whenever I think of you, I always remember that beautiful voice and my love of opera. Carol and I have a grandson that married a very accomplished opera singer - a bit older than he is, but she is involved in all sorts of programs, teaching and singing. They met while he was doing graduate work on his second masters program - but he is into history and science. They make a wonderful couple together. Attached is a picture of the couple. Her name is Marlayna.

My new form of perambulation now enables me to get out more. Thanks to the Veterans Administration, I now have an electric scooter plus a lift that puts it inside my car when I want to go somewhere that I have to move about. An unfortunate injury, spinal stenosis, limits my ability to walk or stand for more than ten minutes and because of my age, no surgeon will operate on my spine. However, this little scooter is really a solution to the problem. I've yet to retire, but I'm thinking about it. Maybe, however, I will write or edit a few more books. Gotta keep those little gray cells active.

Riding on the scooter provided by the VA - and wearing my American Legion cap celebrating the 100th anniversay of The American Legion.
