I was looking at the 'In Memory' page and then went looking on the net for obits. Couldn't find even one. Disturbing. Does anybody know what happened to some of the people on the 'In Memory' page?

Gary, I don't know either, but would really like to know. I was pretty overwhelmed when I saw this list of so many classmates.

Thanks for that update, Larry.  I still think the Sands did 'Get off my Cloud' better than the Stones.  Just thought I'd mention that...

You need to contact Guy Lucas about Glenn.  I thought Glenn died suddenly from heart or fatigue.

Glenn was working many denistry hours helping out a fellow denist.  Glenn was under alot of financal pressure from his marriages.


I remember meeting Guys neighbor and giving his neighbor my condolances.  And he said he spoke to Guy yesterday.


I thought Alan Echols died from an OD.  Alan could never get over adoption.

In Martin he informed me I was swapped at birth.

Hi Kevin -


Thanks for getting in touch!

I was wrong about the death of Guy Lucas; I corrected this error on this website on 11/30/11.

I was told by Alan Echols' best friend that he died of cancer. Perhaps I misunderstood, or maybe his friend was too embarrassed (or sad) to state the real reason he died. I only know what he told me.

Please stay in touch!

Alan Echol's best friend was Charles Kistler.  As you know Charles died in a car crash.  My brother married one of the Kistler sisters.  I was taken back meeting Charles' son at my brothers Lake Gaston place.  I had to play both Charles and Alan in the 8th grade chess tounament at Martin.  I also had Alans dad as a lecturer at NCSU in the Electrcal Engineering program.  Alan's home is on the way to my sisters place in north Hills and still bears the marker.  Although I never met her, Alan's mom was an attorney.  Alan and Charles were caught together breaking into cars during their youth. 

Another story was that Alan, a red head, ran away from home to NYC.  To prevent his recogonition, Alan attempted to die his hair black.  It came out green.


Maybe I will also be dead before stories are told about me.

Those of you who had Nancy Banks in Martin JR High in the 7 or 8 grades (english and history) may want to participate in sending her a birthday card on her 90 birthday October 10.

The object is to send 90 cards.

Nancy Banks, eighth grade English Martin Junior High, did not receive the target of 90 birthday cards on her 90th birthday. 

She received 130.

Thanks to all.
