 Bummer and yay! Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend yet another class reunion--but the good news is that I will be playing the part of Bloody Mary in South Pacific! (Yes, I'm a rolly-polly lump these days...but I'm still singing:)


I will miss seeing all of you and was really looking forward to the visit. Please give my love to all, and tell everyone to contact me on FB or Twitter--I'd love to hear how it went!

It is with great sorrow that I am telling our class about Ron Cochran’s passing last week from cancer but not without him putting up one hell of a fight. Ron has been valiantly fighting a 4-year battle with cancer. It also caused him to have a massive stroke that made it very difficult for him to care for himself. His brother, Donald, and I did everything we could to make him self-sufficient again. His brother is a true champion and is one of the best brothers ever. It is with great joy that I tell you that almost a year ago, we were able to move him to his own residence back in the Woodlands. As of two weeks ago, I got him to stand from his wheelchair on his own. He and I were working weekly on his walking. I truly believe given another two months, we would have had him walking again. At great pain and frustration to himself, he was strong enough to let me take him to lunch at least once a week. It took an hour to get him ready and in my truck. I would let him pick a spot and we would spend as long at lunch as he could physically endure. He truly needed this socializing but please understand that it was both difficult and extremely exhausting to him. His courage was tremendous. I cannot tell you how hard this was on him. He was so strong to face these challenges. We can all be so proud of Ron and how much he endured. He truly enjoyed being a part of the class of 81 and had nothing but great feelings towards our class. We are currently working on a service for him and will give the details as soon as we have them. I can never repay Ron for his friendship. 28 years ago, he introduced me to my wife. We were the best men at each other's weddings. His niece and my youngest daughter are now best of friends at Texas A&M and lived together their freshmen year. I know we were all better because we knew him and called him our friend. Ron, we will all miss you until we see you again. God Bless. Love you, brother.

Very sorry to hear of Ron's passing.  I was actually hoping to see him at the reunion.  Ron was an interesting fellow to me.  When I first came to Memorial from Ohio, I saw him as a cut-up and a class clown, who was interfering with MY attempts to learn.  Then, a strange and miraculous thing happened: he invited me to a party.  ME, of all people, who looked down at him.  We didn't become best buds after that, but I definitely dropped my holier-than-thou attitude, and considered him a friend.  RIP Ron.  You were cool!

Was really hoping to be at the reunion this weekend, but there is just too much bad news coming out of Texas that I could not in good conscience go to Houston at this time.  Oh, well, I suspect no one will miss me.  Have fun time without me, 'stangs!

I'm not attending either but it's certainly not because of the news - just turn it off William and play your guitar.  Music always brings joy.  Cheers to being your authentic self as you've certainly walked a brave journey since high school.

Hey, William Stevens, I'm with you all the way.  With the Astros down 2-1 against the Braves, I don't see how I could, in good conscience, go to a reunion in Houston either.  And don't even get me started with the Texans!

ps: You'll always just be "Clemson" to me. No school ever had a better fan.

Had a terrific time at the 40th reunion!  Thanks so much for all the work you guys put into it to making it happen and thank you to everyone that came and made it special. I've never been to a class reunion so maybe my expectations were just low (or not, not sure since it was my first), but I didn't expect to have so much fun seeing everyone and catching up. I look forward to seeing you guys, and those who couldn't make it to this one, again at that next one.  Let's not wait 10 years.....

Again, thanks Shirley and everyone for that wonderful reunion!!  Was fantastic.

A bunch of folks said they wanted to come to our studio (some out of towners).  So: yes

If in town for Thanksgiving (or the upcoming Holidays and want to drop by our Studio-Showroom  ( 23  years on Bingle Rd/ just north of Westview and really close to MHS. )    I will be in & out today through Tuesday.   

Come by to visit, have a glass of wine or a beer, or just a quick browse.   

Please call or text me 713.301.7291  to make sure the timing works.  

Sincerely, Caryn

Do you remember the 21st night of September?  This song brings back fun, light hearted memories of formals and proms.  Have a happy 21st night of this September, y'all.
