Susie,  those are beautiful words.   I am sure Stella heard them and smiled her beautiful smile.  Bless you and David.   You had a wonderful sister and she did as well!  My heart is with you!

Mary Susan Kirk (Fulghum)

Thank you Susie, for sharing your love of Stella and the beautiful reminiscences. I will pray for you and David, that Our Lord will comfort and sustain you and your family. I think that some people slip into heaven and up onto the lap of God more easily than others - Stella is one of those, perfectly at peace now that she is Home.

 Take care of yourself and keep in touch with us. We love you.

Like so many others, I was blessed by knowing Stella. I am also blessed to know that she remained the same loving, genuine person throughout her life. She has been an example to us all as she has fought the good fight and finished the race. May God comfort you as you “run your race.”

Susie, thank you for sharing all the wonderful memories of times you and Stella shared together - clearly, love was all around. Stella was indeed special, and the two of you made a special pair.

Susie, what a beautiful tribute to Stella. My prayers for you in these coming days as you adjust to life without your other half.  May God, your family and friends and wonderful memories comfort and encourage you as you continue as she would have you to - with love and compassion and a ready smile.

" To all Fred A. Olds Alumni:

  Pat Wheeler will have a sign up sheet at the registration desk Saturday night at the Carolina Country Club for any of the alumni to request  that she E-mail a group picture to them. She will ask the Fred A. Olds alumni to gather with her at 8:00 PM. There will be no microphone there, so she will remind everybody that it is time to gather. She will wave an American flag and ask others to pass the word around."

I had an absolutely wonderful time at our 55th Reunion activities this weekend. Thanks to Steve, Audry, and Robert for putting this together, and to everyone who attended to make this one of our best reunions. It was great to see everyone. I feel so very formtunate to be a part of the Broughton Class of '63.

My mom and dad are smiling down from Heaven saying, "thank you, Charles, for not being able to send us to represent you at your reunion." Looks like our class, again, sent their parents to the party.

David Crenshaw

Greetings from David Crenshaw, class of 1963.  I have 2 LATIPACS I am willing to send to someone who may want them.  A  1961 and a 1962.     You can not have my '63!

We had a monster tree fall on our house a year ago or so and had to take everything out of the house and when it all came back we went thru everything.

So if you want one of these, I can sent it to you.

Peggy Bell (Poe)

Hi everyone!  This is just to let you know I have published a book called “Staying at Home God’s Way.”  It is a guide for young women who want to stay at home with their children but don’t think it’s possible financially.  It’s what worked for me while at home with my children for 13 years.  It would make a great wedding or Christmas gift for the young bride or to help your children (or grandchildren) make ends meet as it has many money-saving ideas.  It’s available on - just type the title in the search slot and it will come up.  Check it out on Amazon.  It’s on sale right now so get it while it’s a bargain!

I want to send out a heart/felt thank you to all of you who were kind and thoughtful enough to send a message about Stella.  There are many nights when I have gone through your comments one by one and marveled at the things you have had to say.  I think Stella would have been amazed.  Thank you for your words of comfort.


I saw the picture that Bobby and Mary Susan sent from Europe.  What a great class we have when our members are still doing things like that!  I would love to see more pictures that show the adventurous nature of the Class of 63!

Deborah White (Cashwell)

Susie, I’m sure each message you read was straight from the heart of those who love both you and Stella.  I’m glad you took comfort from them.  

I don’t know if you are a Facebook member, but if so, there is a Facebook page just for our class of ‘63.  You might enjoy strolling through the pictures and memories there.

Christine Oliver (Oliver)

I have posted sparingly, to say the least, but appreciate those of you who post with some regularity and in awe of Steve who keeps it all together.  Susie, I am very sorry for your loss and can't begin to imagine how difficult it must have been and continues to be.  Bobbie and Mary Susan, what a treat to see the two of you whooping it up in Prague.  I would recognize either of you anywhere.  I am living in Toronto now and continue to work - although at a somewhat slower pace, with an eye towards cutting back in a meaningful way at the end of the year.  Big hug to all!  Christine

Mary Susan Kirk (Fulghum)
