Artiles, I hope you get better and wish you the best. The re-union was fun, and I was amazed to see how many old people showed up. I thought that I had went to the wrong place. I had a good time, and I want to thank all of the organizers for putting on a great party.

WOW...I just got a chance to view the pictures of the reunion. They are fantastic..It looks like all of you had a great time. It must have really brought back a lot of memories to be at the Womens Club. I was hoping if I put on my cheaters, I would be able to see some of the name tags. Didn't work. :(  It would be fun to know who everyone was. Not that I want to make another project for the committee! Great job!

Sadly learned today of Gail Garrett's death last year.  Gail was a good friend in school and later while working at State Farm.  She was a sweet, kind-hearted person!

Found this picture of Miss Koone's fifth grade class at Englewood Elementary.  I am in the back row sitting next to Mike Merritt (not sure what I was mad about).  Chuck Menotte is also sitting in the back row.  Artiles is in the front right corner in front of Beverly Jelinek.  Think I recognize twelve other '69 graduates!

Frances- great picture of our 5th grade class! Look 2 people to the right of you and up one- that's me- Trish Morris! Thanks for finding this great picture!

Pat (Trish) Morris

By the way...2 people up from you is Warriner Siddle

Frances Essex (Floyd)

Pat (as I remember you),   I had recognized you and Warriner.  I think Shirley Zayatz is sitting in front of you, then Rodney Hylton, Kathy Gregory and Cathy McDonald.  Sam Skinner is to her left and Kathy Herndon is next to Sam.  Artiles, Beverly, Maude Base, Norm Middlebrooks, Karen Atkinson and Janet Segal are in the far right row.  I can remember just about everyone which is a little scary!  Do you know who the boy sitting next to you is? 

Hope you are doing well.

Frances Essex (Floyd)

Hey, Joe!  How is Wanda and Bill doing?  They were some great neighbors.  Sure miss them!  How are you  doing?  Are you in Jacksonville?                                                                                                                        

Pat, that is Suzanne Council.  I think she moved away during junior high.  Rose Culpepper is sitting in front of her.  She moved to Michigan after seventh grade.

Love this picture!  And I recognize a few of the faces although I didn't know them until we all got to Southside Junior High....Frances, I think Mike Merritt must have been picking on you by the look on your face!

Artiles Manuel Pelegrin

Hi Frances, hope everything is ok with you... Let me ask you a question did you keep in contact with Rose Culperpper

Joseph H. Johnson, (Jr. )

No I live in St. Marys Ga. Up the road about 45 min. From Jax. Wanda and Bill retired down at their place in Suwanne. They owned rental property in Jax. and come up occassionally.I will say hi for you.

09/17/14 02:11 PM #40    

Frances Essex (Floyd)

Linda, I am sure Mike said something to make me mad.  We were always picking on each other in elementary school!

Artiles, I stayed in touch with Rose until we both graduated and then we lost track of each other.  She was one of my best friends at little Englewood.  We were always doing things together.

Joe, please do tell Wanda and Bill that Skee and I say "hi"!  Tell them to come see us when they are in Jax.  We still are at the same place!

I'm pretty sure the girl to Frances' right is Frankie Bignon!

Frances Essex (Floyd)

Yes, Danny, that is Frankie. Do you know who the boy is sitting in front of her?  And does anyone know what happened to Frankie?  She wasn't with our graduating class.

Frankie married David Lea our sophmore year, dropped out of high school and stayed with her mother while David was in Viet Nam.  The last time I saw her was in 1969 I believe. My brother was engaged to her sister Mary Ann.

It is with great sorrow that I am notifying the Class of 1969, the passing of Danese Veates Ballantine.  Danese was an 18 year survivor of breast cancer.  In mid September, test were preformed in ER for a blockage of her bile duct and a stint was placed. Further tests showed the breast cancer had metastasis around her heart, in her lungs and abdomen.  The oncologist said that chemo would not provide her any guarantees to her life expectancies of 3 months.  Danese chose quality of life.  She had never played with her kids, grandkids and quilting Ladies.  She was enjoying Life.  Her requests were for everyone to ‘hug more.’
