Gale dated Robert Dodds (class of 62) most of her senior yrar. Double dated with her many times, a really sweet girl. As usual, lost track of her after school but thought of her often as we reflect in our senior years. She is missed by those who knew her.

Gail Patricjk Martin was like a sister I did not have. She and I bonded immediately

when we met at Fred Olds and stayed that way through most of of our life.

My daughters Godmother. My family - Mama and brothers and daughter love

her with our hearts.

Agree with David; Whitaker Glen (name changed to The Oaks) & Mayview took good care of my Mother in Law.

I agree with David and Don. The Oaks at Whitaker Glen - Mayview is an excellent facility.

I agree with Mayview/ The Oaks at Whitaker Glen. There are others (Rex Nursing and Rehab, Springmoor, Glenaire, The Cypress) all excwellent, but vary in expense. Mayview still  the best, I think.

It's wonderful that we can help each other like this by sharing our thoughts, experiences, and information. Please let us know, Sandra, if we can be of an further help. Also, great to hear from you, Bill, Don, and David.

Although my mom was only there for two weeks before passing away, I was impressed with the care and compassion she received at Mayview. They were very supportive of my family during this time.

My grandmother stayed at Mayview (The Oaks) nursing home part until she passed away at age 99.  She had Alzheimer's and they took good care of her.  My mother lived there in a two-bedroom apartment and enjoyed visiting old friends who also lived there.  When we would visit, we would eat in their excellent restaurant.  A very nice place although I haven't been back there since my mother passed away in 2009.

So sorry to hear about Terry's sudden passing. I remember her fondly from our days at Broughton. Her father was one of my most memorable teachers at NC State. Like many of our other classmates, Terry will be missed. RIP

Thank you for letting us know about Linda.  I will surely be praying for her.  I know that God hears and answers every prayer perfectly.

Once again I am requesting any information on our 55th reunion.  I need to plan my summer and schedule several difficult task which cannot be delayed until the last minute...  I don't want to miss the reunion but events will soon preclude attendance if a proposed date is not determined.  My previous post is below.

With our 55th reunion year coming upon us...  those of us living away from Raleigh are wondering if any plans have been discussed as to a date or range of dates?  Travel is much easier to set up in advance and schedules are less impacted with advanced knowledge.  I know those of you living in the Raleigh area get tasked with doing the prep work and for that we are most greatful.  Please let us know of any discussions, tentative plans, or directions being talked.  I would hope for a June time frame but am open to any proposals.  Several of us have been questioning the timing of the celebration.  Again thanks in advance for the efforts that will be required to make this happen.  Tony

    There is an old Cherokee proverb that says, "Do not let yesterday use up too much of today".

   I was a teen-ager back then.   Fifty-five years later and now I'm an antique teen-ager and still remember the best of days back then but never giving up and looking forward to more of best days yet to come.
