I am sadly hearing that it is possible Mike Whitehead has passed away.  His last known address in this site was Silsbee, TX.  I can't find any obituary on line.  Does anyone know anything more?

Re;  Roxanne Woods murder in 1987

I just saw this on our local Grand Rapids news tonight and was quite surprised after 35 years that this murderer was finally caught.  Roxanne Woods was a friend of mine and I am thankful this may have been solved.  It's been so long.  I hope she can rest in peace now.

Sooooo many of us were wrong with our assumption that Terry had some part in this horrific incident.  We can't apologize to Terry enough and send him our thanks and prayers for his patience with so many of us.

The criminal justice system should be congratulated for continuing their search after 35 years

I di like more then a few think that he had done the deed & am so sorry I was wrong as I feel bad now for thinking this all this time,but am very glad he didn't have anything to do with it & hope he will forgive me for some of my awlaful thought I had at times. Terry I want to be one of the first few to say I am very happy for you & very sorry for thinking in my head you had something to do with it as I liked her very much even though we were not close after grade school. GOD BLESS you & the rest of your family.  Sinserly Rex Lee Carpenter.

Kudos to WMU.......

Today on the "Today Show", a story of how WMU has started a class for research students, organizing notes for the State Police. This program saves the detectives the time of doing this themselves.

Their FIRST SOLVED CASE: Our Roxanne!!!!

Karen McGregor (Bezemek)

Charlie's soul here on earth and now in life everlasting is at peace.
I wish I'd known him as well as many of you. A truly good guy. His passing is a reminder to all to take care of any health issues and, to live each day to the fullest. Prayers of comfort for all who loved him.

Well said Karen. Rest in peace Charlie. My condolences to Charlie's family.

Charley was a great guy. One of the nicest guys I have ever known. We knew each other in school but also in junior bowling league.I got to see him often when I was bowling part time in Niles the last two years. Rest In Peace!!!

Bill Weaver

It's a sad day in the Weaver household after hearing this news.  Growing up on the same street, we spent a lot of time together.  Fond memories of the sandlot baseball games, street football, whiffle ball, basketball, and riding our bikes.  He will be missed by all that knew him.  Sending thoughts and prayers to his family.

Lynn Bassler (Porter)

Just following up on Rex's comment about the Class Reunion!

We have a little over a year+ and of course I have not participated in anything with the reunions for 50 years!!  Well I am back in Niles and want to reach out to those who have been involved with all the reunions and see how I can help or get the ball rolling.  I remember a "few" folks who were at the top working thru everything for the past reunions but beyond that I'm at a loss.  I'd be happy to kick a meeting off here at the house when you think its time.  I look forward to hearing back from anyone that has been involved or wants to be involved, but count me in for sure for the 50th!!

Anne Rigby (Haley)

Thank you, Lynn!  I'll do whatever I can from GA.  As long as it's not in hurricane season (or tornado time!) count me in.

Hi all. Been working on the reunion, trying to convince the owners to let us have it there. Kind of hush hush for now but if it works it will be a time to remember. Obviously I don't want to dictate this is what we have to do but I think everyone should be happy. Well, almost all. Never can please everyone. We can discuss it when I get an answer, you can be thinking of alternatives in the meantime and decide the best options. 
I haven't posted this for a long time but a few classmates meet once a month at Martins supermarket in the deli area. It's kinda been word of mouth but is open to all. We even have some from the class ahead and behind that attend. Not a reunion meeting but talking about everything. 
We meet the 2nd Wednesday of the month around 8:00 a.m. in the deli area. Martins has coffee or you can buy Starbucks or drink ALMOST anything you want. Any questions about anything please feel free to email me:
C-ya. Joe
