5/6/2009 Found HHS 58 Girl's Ring, CRB
Gary McBride has a 58 girls class ring with the initials "CRB". Our graduation program lists Colleen Rebecca Bateman. The only other girls are Carol Beets or Clara Best. If anyone knows an

Wow! 57 years since graduation. Well, life has been fantastic and I've been blessed far beyond what I deserve. Early going was crazy... Started at U of Miami right after graduation. I know...unbelieveable! Lasted 2 terms...screwin'off as usual.
In '59 began a job as a life insurance agent, and married Judy Russell (HHS 1960 would've been) except she gave birth to my first child in March of '60. That marriage ended at the end of '60....oh boy!
In '61 auditioned for an Air Force musician position and made it...began my military career at Patrick AFB at Cocoa Beach, FL. "Yay" for the influence of Mr Sullivan and Mr Turrentine, HHS Band directors, who saved my bacon from the military draft. (That's a story in itself...for later maybe). Tough military duty that was...playing my horn at Cocoa Beach, Florida.
In '63 married Dorothy Coley (HHS 1960), an earlier friend to Judy and next-door neighbor to Judy when they were at HHS. (I know...could've been a soap-opera). First child together was born in '64, another in '65, and another at the beginning of '67.
In '67 began my college work in earnest at FSU, after competing for and receiving a USAF college and commissioning award.
In '68 graduated from FSU and Dorothy had our fourth child. Commissioned later that year.
In '71-72 completed an MS degree program at AF Institute of Technology.
In '73-74 was stationed overseas unaccompanied.
In '75 was reassigned to the Wash DC area, and Dorothy had our fifth child.
In '81 I retired from the Air Force and began a civilian career working in support of Navy acquisition programs.
In '86 Dorothy and I divorced. I remained in the DC area.
In '89 Carolyn and I married, and with her young daughter Kristy and my youngest son Don, we began building our dream home in Annapolis, MD.
In '93 our first child together, Kyle, was born.
In '99 I retired from all forms of employment...Waahoo!
In '06 I began again with my musical interests.
And from then on...life has been fun and rewarding beyond belief...with my music and my toys. Ooh, makes me sound like a selfish brat. Carolyn would say..."Duuh"!
Anyhoo, we are down to just three in the household, but four more of the kids with their families are also in the area.
To sum it up...I am a very lucky and happy guy.
Hope this hasn't bored you too much...
Was it only
yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?
Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or studied for a test?
Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good
byes? Was it only yesterday we heard of your passing? And
we cried. You are still a part of our hearts and you will always be our
Cherished Friends Forever.
