Comments: My name is Frankie Cruz. I'm a native New Yorker who (as a matter of fact) spent the latter part of my childhood in Camp Lejeune, NC due to my father's military service. I'm a graduate of Lejeune High School - Class of 1983. I came across your website regarding Curtis Hairston and was very touched. As a DJ, upon returning to NY in 1986, Curtis' tracks were "beyond gold" in my record crates. :) So for what it's worth, feel free to remind your fellow classmates as well as Curtis' family and let them know that in the music world of New York City, DJ's today continue to give tribute to Curtis Hairston; and he remains forever missed.

Kindest Regards,
Frankie Cruz

[Please note: This entry is adapted from an e-mail sent to the webmaster/class web site regarding our late classmate Curtis Hairston. In his all-too-brief life, Curtis had the chance to live his dream of being a recording artist which is more than most folks can say after a full life much less half a lifetime. It's always good to hear from Curtis's fans. Remember! -- Matt Wallace, Class Webmaster]

Comments: I have a small site devoted to my high school class, and found your site while shoping around for other ways to do such things. I'm really impressed by the clean and neat look of your site, and by the especially nice functional layout. When I next do some major revisions, I'll no doubt use some of your good ideas! Thanks very much for the huge amount of work you must have put into this.

Comments: Hello to everyone in the East Forsyth Class of 1979. My name is India Reaves and I am the daughter of your fellow classmate, Kathy Reaves. I apologize for just now posting this, but better late than never. I just wanted to thank you all for posting my mother's obituary on your website. I really appreciate that kind gesture. I have meet many of you and I am so glad that so many of you showed up to the funeral and gave your support and condolensces during my lost. I now realize that I was not the only one who lost something when my mother passed away, but we all suffered the lost. She was a rare jewel and she will never be replaced. I am sure that she is smiling down on me from Heaven right now as I type this and she is very grateful that her classmates care so much about her. Like I said I do appreciate all that you have done.

Comments: I just have to say that your Web site about your class' reunions for East Forsyth is THE BOMB!!! I actually am a 1986 graduate of East, but my brothers graduated from East in either 1976 or 1977 ... I can't remember. My brothers' names are Kevin, Timothy ("Tim"), and Anthony ("Tony") Hannon. Not sure if you were there with them or not. Anyway, I am helping to plan our 20th reunion for 2006 and did a search on the Internet and found your site. It is so thorough and gave me a lot of good ideas, based on the info you provided on your reunion. Kudos to you, fellow Eagle!

Comments: found your site via a google search for doug wolford. i met doug, wife karen and her brother dorian west when we were all on the trans siberian railway in the very late 1980's. we kept in touch for a while - i even went to dorian's wedding to cindy in 1989 in north carolina. would really appreciate any info about any of them as i would love to renew the contact - have such great memories of our time together and my job brings me to the states quite often. PLEASE HELP!!! THANK YOU

Class Webmaster response:
Anna, I wish I could help you. I count Doug as both a high school and a college bud; I first met Karen when she and Doug first started dating when we were all freshmen at North Carolina State University. I lost contact with Doug a few years back and, in spite of my best efforts, haven't been able to reestablish it since. I can only hope he'll reconnect with us eventually, so keep checking with the site... -- Matt Wallace, Class Webmaster

Comments: hi to all. just a quick note of thanks to all that attended our reunion at freddie b's the other night. as jerry said it was pretty much a simple affair. it was great to see johnny crouch, kara reeves and ronald hines. thanks to pat simmons , lisa angell, and vera for representing the reunion commitee and coming to the event. also mr mark bullins made a surprise visit from myrtle beach. getting together and reminiscing about old times doesn't have to be about money or putting on your show clothes. it's about enjoying yourself. after last saturday's get together, several attendees have called and said we should do this once a year. i agree. we can easily rendezous at a predetermined location and socialize. last saturday was a lot of fun for those that attended. i appreciate the turnout and thanks to all. tony

Class Webmaster response:
The Reunion Committee's efforts over the past year to organize the Silver Reunion had nothing to do with "money" or "show clothes." Our thinking during the planning process can be viewed in "25 Year Reunion Committee Report #1" which was posted to the site on 7 February 2004. -- Matt Wallace, Class Webmaster

Comments: The efforts put forth in the reunion are tremendously appreciated. As long as there is an effort it does not matter about the numbers or location -of course the more the merrier. It appears the success label is tied to one plan being dependent upon the numbers and the other was not. I am going to guess the numbers participating in both plans were about the same if not different individuals. The coincindence of timing is something I heard about that did not work for attending one or the other reunion plan. Some ideas for future gatherings I heard were: a big potluck picnic, a cookout at some big-hearted person's property (Mr. M), could we utilize the school property?, and if you wanted to travel a little the Grove Park Inn has a fantastic 5 star all you can eat buffet for under $30.00 (I know, convenient for me.....). The main point is the work, effort, and selflessness is admired very much no matter what idea is/was/will be presented.

Comments: I liked the idea for the second chance reunion; it was small and simple. I was hoping to see more classmates than what I did. But it was still good. Let's try to keep these reunions going in the future. Our 20 year reunion was a great turnout; let's try the same for our 30 year reunion. Maybe we can have it at Dudleys again. Instead of extravagant keep it simple. If it is anything I can do to help with the 30 year reunion let me know.

Class Webmaster response:
When the Reunion Committee was planning the Silver Reunion, we started with correcting the problems we experienced at the 20-year reunion: inadequate food, crowding, the conflict between "partying" and "socializing," etc. Our final plan incorporated a venue which was large enough to accommodate a good portion of our very large class, would allow for a partitioning of the competing festivities, and could cater the event fully. In short, the Reunion Committee went for a bigger, better, more organized, more accessible event, and all at a reasonable price. I wouldn't call our plans "extravagant" in any sense of the word. -- Matt Wallace, Class Webmaster

Comments: Just wanted to let the people who knew my immediate family, that on November 8, 2004, my father past away in Salisbury, NC at the Veterans Hospital. Also on that note, my husband SGT Clark Stephenson is away in IRAQ since February of this year and another of our 1979 classmates, SGT Richard Miller is also in IRAQ and is home on R&R til sometime this week, so I was just giving an update of some of our former classmates whereabouts in 2004. I would like to take this time out for all of you EAGLES to say a prayer for those who have someone over in IRAQ or just the fact that these soliders be it male/female that they all return home to wherever in the GOOD OLD USA safe where they belong. Thank You All. Have A Blessed Day.

Comments: Just wanted to say thanks to all those who worked on setting up the silver reunion. Sorry to see it was canceled. I was hoping to make it to the mini-reunion but I doubt that will happen now after hurricanes Charlie, Frances and in a couple of days, hurricane Ivan. 3 hurricanes in 4 weeks keeps ya just a bit busy. But it keeps life interesting... never thought I'd have to stop to let a jetski cross the intersection. Hope to see everyone there.

Comments: I am assuming that the word is getting out about the cancellation of the reunion. I guess alot of you did not realize the importance of sending your money in on the first pricing structure. I guess maybe it was misleading that the low amount of funds that was left over from the 20th. The reason for that was we did not have alot to do the 20th. We planned this one a little bit nicer so folks would have someplace to go and catch up on conversations. We heard comments from the 20th that "it was too loud" and of course everyone that was there knows that we ran out of food. It all goes back to "you get what you pay for." Yes, I think we all were looking forward to this one. So if there is anyone out there that would like to take it upon themselves and get something started please feel free to contact Mike or myself. Wishing you all the best, Lisa

Class Webmaster response:
While the Reunion Committee was forced to cancel Saturday night's Social, we intend on salvaging something of our Silver Reunion plans. We are working on some sort of get-together in conjunction with the activities surrounding East's Friday night football game, so please keep checking our Reunions page which will be updated as details become available. And don't forget your inboxes either. -- Matt Wallace, Class Webmaster
