Hi Alice!

Glad you are back east. Hope you have some comfort that your family is nearby. As I said in a previous message, loss of a loved one is the most painful thing that I know. There is no easy solution.....just give it time and keep as busy as you can.
I intend to keep this webpage going as long as people keep checking it out (it doesn't cost anything anyway). But many people who started here have moved over to Facebook. There are a LOT of Jackson High grads on Facebook.

To go to Facebook, <a href="http://www.facebook.com">~CLICK HERE.~</a> and then fill in the form under "Sign Up".

Once you're signed up in Facebook, you can search for "Jackson Memorial High School". You will find lots of people.

Don't get me wrong....Facebook is not perfect and in fact, some of the comments there can be annoying. Speaking personally, I am politicaly moderate and attend church regularly. But I don't want to force my views on others. Some of our old Jackson grads on Facebook seem to feel they should "preach" to us about religion every day....I find that tiring. Also, there seems to be some Jackson grads that think it's OK to spread extreme, right-wing politics and untrue, disrespectful comments about our president. I have lots of friends and family that are both Rebublican and Democrat......but in the real world, most of us avoid these extreme type of people who attack the people that they disagree with. Honest criticism is one thing, but out-and-out lies is another.

So, Facebook is fun and there's a lot of good folks on there. I would just avoid "friending" some of the folks there that have extreme religious or political views.

I have been on the road far too much in the last two weeks and have had little time to write.

I was very sorry to hear the news about Jon. Speaking from personal experience, I can only tell you that there is no "magic solution" when dealing with the loss of a loved one.
The best thing is to stay as busy as possible.
I hope that returning to the eastern US and seeing some familiar faces will bring you some comfort.

Hi Alice. If you will be living with your sister and not with your daughter, please send me your address and phone number so I can keep in touch with you. My prayers are with you at this difficult time in your life.
Big Kiss, Maria

Boy does that bring back memories- forgot how old Switlik was when
we went there--
Still remember the musty smell of those stage curtins to this day-
We could make a movie about our freshman football team- "Lovable Losers"- Poor Coach Munley, wish he had a few more good players on
that team, instead of guys like me-- The Best Benchwarmer Ever At
Jackson Jr Sr High--

Let's start at the very beginning-- I moved to Jackson the summer after my 8th grade in South Brunswick school system-- 9th grade for the class of 1967 the 8th grade class of 1968 AND the 7th grade of
1969 all began their Jackson education at Switlik going to split sessions-- I'm not sure but I think we finally got to attend the actual high school before the academic year was over -- the football team used a practice field near the Orthodox church-- we players spent the beginnings of practice picking up pieces of broken glass and empty beer cans- but the sand burrs were a constant pain---- Coach Munley could not kick anybody off team - think we only had 15 players-- Dave Green, Scott Morrow, John Diab, Big Ray Carraker, John Hogan, Micky Morrison, Kevin Williams and assorted others made up the backbone of that team --

As we say in Alabama-- " Roll Tide "

ALL: Alice called me on Jan 23-2008 to tell me that she'd had a stroke. She is in a hospital in Los Vegas doing some rehabilitation/physical therapy right now. She is trying hard to get better. Her plan in the next few months is to come back east and stay in a rehab facility near her sister. Jon is doing OK, but with some health concerns also...he will probably drive back east with their stuff. Alice told me it was OK to post a phone number to contact her, so that's what I'm doing. The number is 1-702-465-0119. I do not think she has access to the internet. I know she would love to hear from some of us. It would surly cheer her up. By the way, she is also hopeful that we can have a re-union of our class in Summer of 2008.
