Butch and Sue Moody Want You To Know About Their Grandson

Butch and Sue Moody want you to know about their grandson, Marine PFC Dustin Moody.
Dustin recently finished boot camp at Paris Island, a basic training camp for the United States Marine Corps. Marine boot camp is 13 weeks of the most grueling of physical and mental experiences that one can imagine. It is a life-changing experience. This experience accounts for the motto -- "Once a Marine, Always a Marine"

Susie Kain Kemp' Death

It is with great sadness that we add Susie to our In Memoriam page.  Mary Futch reports that Susie passed away during the night.  Susie has been in and out of the hospital and was hospitalized at the time of her death.  All we know at this time is that her heart failed last evening about 10:30.  Susie has had a long struggle with diabetes, which most likely contributed to heart disease.  She was also a survivor of pancreatic cancer, which was diagnosed about three years ago.

Photos From Our Dinner Party At Apsley Manor

About 30 classmates enjoyed a soiree' at Roger Sherman's country estate, aviary, and farm -- Apsley Manor.  The center photo shows Roger's home.

In the upper, left photo, you may recognize Rodney James and George Coward seated on the far side of the table.  On the near side are Pat Williams and Annette Davis.  In the upper, right photo, you might recognize Butch Moody's bald head and see Sue Moody sitting in the foreground.

In the lower, right photo, Jimmy Musso's bald head joins that of Butch Moody's.  Alice Musso is sitting in front of JImmy.  I think O. B. and Charlotte Key are mid-range in the right side of this photo.  In the distance, on the right side, are Rodney James and George Coward.  On the left side of the table, beyond Jimmy Musso, are Allan and Annette Davis, Pat Williams, and someone else.

In the lower, left photo, Jimmy and Butch are again proudly showing off "old baldy."  I think James Edwards is also in this photo beside Alice Musso.
