Which was why the 'Three of Us' shared a Yearbook. Shared the 'Autograph' pages. Shared the photos, and the XOXO messages and signatures of our teachers and friends.
To the runt of the football team. Luck Always. Willard
To one of my very best friends. Joe
Tommy...It has been a swell experience knowing and working with a guy like you. You're mean but I love you! Wish you were my little brother. Be nice and remember me. Love, Doris
To a pretty tough football player. Coach Moore
To a good friend and a good classmate. Sammy
After reading a few of the XOXO messages from Tommy's page, you have probably guessed he was a pretty tough kid. Unlike his year older, long legged, taller than all the boys sister...me...Tommy's growth spurt didn't happen until after he graduated from high school. Back in the day he was known as 'Rough House'...today he is a grandfather and great grandfather of a passel of little 'Rough House' boys. That mean look on #15's face...that was just for the picture...he's really is a 'Swell' guy and I'm glad he is my brother, but back in the day I would have gladly granted Doris' wish!
Dear Sonja...You are a very sweet girl. You are nice and polite. Your friend, Donna
If I had a room full of girls as sweet as you it would be wonderful. Love, Mrs. Stubblefield
Dear Sonja...You have been a great friend these last 9 months. You have been nice to me. Cindy
Sonja, you are a very nice girl. Listen, Freddy wants your neclise and I can not help it if you are mad...sorry. Lots of Love , Tranisha
Hi Sonja, To a very sweet sister who I get very mad at times, but really LOVE all the time. I know you will be a good basketball player and win Jr.High another trophy. Love, Sue
After reading Sonja's XOXO messages, I am sure you can see how she was selected 'Class Favorite'. What a cute girl, fun friend, and sweet sister. My prediction of her becoming a good basketball player was close, but in the wrong sport. Sonja became our 4-A high School's First Player ever to be named to the Texas University Interscholastic Leagues All State Volleyball Team. She went on to be a highly regarded Collegiate player at Texas Tech University and then the Head Coach at a Class 5-A High School in West Texas. Although she was known as the VB Court Barbie Doll, she was a fierce competitor, respected by her opponents and just like in the third grade...everyone's 'Class Favorite'.
