    I received some sad news yesterday but it brought back some great memories. For those of you that remember “The Goodson Brothers”, it will be sad. Earl Goodson of the class of ’71 passed away on March 22, 2008 in Kansas City. His obituary is in today’s Kansas City Star and the services are tomorrow. He was the brother just after our own class fellow, Charles (Charlie to most) Goodson. Then there was Terry, a few years younger. One can’t think about those boys without getting a grin on your face!!!! Anyway, I just thought some of you Generals might be interested so I posted this. Norma

    On that last message, I made a mistake. Earl passed away on 21st of March not 22nd. nkm

    I hope the organizing committee’s work is progressing and more friends have already sent in their registration forms for the reuninon. Presuming that there might be more of our classmates who reach you by regular mail, I would like to know if Marilyn Chaat Brown is among them.

    I tried to find her address through the internet to no avail. I received no response from her to my message at the Classmates site. She seems not to be in Oklahoma anymore but should still have family members living in OK. Could anyone help me trace her, maybe find her e-mail or phone please?

    I think that she is in San Leandro, CA. At least that’s what the obituary of her mother said. Hope you are coming to the reunion! Norma

    Yes, I am coming to the reunion –I’ll be in okc a day before, and will stay a week afterwards. Maybe we can arrange a gathering with you, Jo, and possibly other friends who would like to join us over coffee. And, is there any way that you get hold of Marilyn’s phone or address, maybe through her family in okc? It could be that she would want to come to the reunion if she knew about it.

    Thanks Norma. And for the outing, let’s set a date when July gets closer, but in the meantime, I am hoping that friends who read the decision and wish to join us will let us know.

    So, I’m sitting in an internet cafe in New Zealand when it suddenly dawns on me that 1969 was 40 years ago. And maybe there’s going to be a U.S. Grant reunion…? Two clicks on Google, and here I am, reading comments by Norma McElwee, of all people. Hi, Norma, it’s been a long time, though I’ve seen you more recently than any of the rest of the ’69 class. Still have very fond memories of that French Club trip to New Orleans…. Very sad to read that my old friend, James Wilson, is gone. I had no idea; lost touch years ago. And, from the list on this site, so many others as well. I’ve often wondered what toll Vietnam took on our class. Sad, and scary. Anyway, guess I’ll sign up and see what the rest of the survivors are up to after 40 years.

    Is it possible that the organizing committe loads a list of classmates coming the reunion so that we all know who will be there and adds follow-up lists, say, weekly? There are several internet sites, such as Classmates.com and two grantalumni sites, but there is no complete list in any of them. Or, is the list on Classmates complete?
