Honoring Mr. Rumble

I know that Mr. Rumble affected our lives and outlooks and education more than most principals could ever hope to influence the lives of their students.   As a principal myself (retired!), I don't want Mr. Rumble to be forgotten.  I'd like to float the idea of perhaps commissioning a portrait to hang in Sutton Middle School with a short identifying placque or something.  I'd like it to be from our class.  I think 1968 was such a defining year in history.  In 2013, we'll have a 45 year reunion, and I envision dedicating and unveiling it then.  Bob Musselman did a great job researching and writing a brief and touching bio of this fine, but forgotten educator. [See "Old Doug" forum] What are your thoughts?

A Night To Remember
Saturday, August 17, 2013

at Bennett and Gayle Hutchison's
home in Vinings
The reunion weekend was awesome!  A low key, casual gathering in one of the most beautiful settings in the South.  And our gracious hosts, Bennett and Gayle Hutchison made it even better with food from the Varsity on Friday night and a barbeque buffet from Low Country on Saturday night! Cathy and Carroll outdid themselves working right up to the last minute to iron out all the details and provide nametags in LARGE print with our yearbook photos!   And  Johnny Thurman was working at Bennett's house for days before and during both nights of the reunion! He did the entire slide show and all the music.   We can't wait to see the  photos he took both nights!



Jim Gibson

Our dear friend, Jim Gibson passed away.   Please post your memories, photos, and thoughts on the the discussion.  Here is a message from Jim's daughter, Jennifer regarding services for Jim:

Hello. I'm Jim Gibson's daughter. My dad's wife, Ann, told me about the Dykes 1968 online network,  and that people were posting some very nice things in memory of my dad. It's comforting to see that people remember my dad fondly. Please let everyone know how much we appreciate the support. It's been a rough couple of days, but every little bit helps.

The service details are as follows:

This Sunday, July 15, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Ravinia across from Perimeter Mall in Atlanta. The address is Two Ravinia Dr. Suite 100 Atlanta, Ga. 30346. It will be held in the Grand Dining Room. There will be a short service where people can offer their memories about my dad as well as a gathering where guests can mingle and have some snacks and drinks (tea and soda only).

If you have any questions, contact me or my dad's wife Ann. My email is jlg8780@gmail.com or you can contact me through the Dykes '68 site. I assume people already know how to contact Ann.

Thanks so much for your support. I think my dad would be shocked to know how many people really do care about him.

The memorial was something Jimmy would have been proud of. A great series of recollections by old friends who loved him, his music and corny pictures that were reminders of his corny jokes. Got a lot of reminders of our time together at Dykes to add to the memories of all the great times we had together. Treasured memories. Hope there's a Dunk 'n Dine in Heaven so Jimmy and Tommy can have Texas breakfast specials with Steve, Johnny and me every morning.

Pat Whitlow

Learned this week that Pat Whitlow passed away and wanted to share--his obituary is online at legacy.com.  Such a shame that we lose another classmate too young.

Thank you Dykes Family!

Dear Dykes family,

     It has been 3 years since George received his new heart and he is doing very well.  He is an inspiration to me and so many others. His faith has brought him face to face with His Maker and smiled.  He has been able to pursue his passion for auto mechanics--he buys and sells old Volvo's and and fixes them up for resale. He is enjoying life.

     We know that many of you have anonomously contributed to a fund Susan Oglesby set up for us to travel to Ireland in…

Moody Miles for Ireland

I know I have some Delta Miles, and I would be thrilled to donate them.  My only limitation is my computer skill incompetence.  I'll try to figure it out, but if anyone has some simple directions for how to transfer the miles, how about posting them.  Roger Meyer
