GKudos to the planning committee for all the work they did in planning for our 45th Reunion. It is always great to see everyone and catch up. I certainly hope to see everyone in 5 years hence. Thanks!

Janet and I had a great time and would like to thank the committee and all who helped to make it happen. I know a lot of classes who have not had a single reunion sense they graduated because its a lot of work and no one wanted to carry the ball ,  so a personal thank you and I know from talking to the group that it is much appreciated.

RIP William. You will be forever missed by the Class of '69. As our motto went "None so fine as '69", and you were one of the finest!!!!

Yes, William will definitely be missed.  I was fortunate to have seen him earlier that day, we hugged and chatted a bit.  He was truly an over achiever and loving father.  I had no idea how many "irons" he had in the fire.  What a great person.  God Bless.

William had let me know Thursday about Bill Willis' death. He was always caring of others. May God Bless the Adcock family during this very sad time.

We will  definitely miss William!  Would the class like to give more of a donation to the museum in William's memory instead of the usual $25.00?  Please let me know.

A man of great integrity.  As evidenced by the huge number of people at his funeral, many celebrated his life and just how much he meant to the people of Oxford and surrounding area.

I was thinking about what Melinda ask. I think we should send the contribution just like for other class mates and family.  I would like to suggest that we form a committee of interested parties who would look into possibly establishing a way that Williams contributions to the community might be recognized in an ongoing way each year.  This could be through the Chamber or Education Foundation or maybe board of Realtors?   Some recognition in his name for either young people or people who are contributing the way he has done.  We could act as a resource to get it set up and solicit contributions from classmates and the community.  This way funds from the class will be used equitably now and in the future so no one is slighted.  What ever organization is chosen would be the ones to Axminster and present the award each year.   We would just need to raise enough money to sustain it.   Would not take a lot as it would just need to pay for the plaque being presented.  Money could be put with the Granville County Community Foundation and they could even administer it and present the award possibly like they do some others. Just something to think about.

I agree with Michael and think he's on to something. I recommend that we explore further.

Jane Claiborne (Lloyd)

I agree with Michael.  Williams was the heartbeat of our class and he always kept everything in line with good results.  I personally am at a loss for words but know that I want to be a part of something that Williams will be remembered as our class remembers all he done for us.

I am so sorry that I missed William's service but we were out of the country when the word came. I'll support any type of memorial for William that the committee decides.  He will be greatly missed in the community and among his classmates.

So saddened by the loss of Mary Ann. She was such an outgoing person in high school. I'll never forget our trip to the beach after graduation!!!! That's the way I'll always remember her!!!

I am deeply saddened to view the lack of comments on Don Bunting's passing away  He was a member of the Class of "69.  He took pictures at the 50th Friday night event and at the reunion, was a member of the reunion committee, and posted the pics. Although I've seen where other classmates posted comments at the funeral homes for other classmates, it leaves me wondering why his family did not receive any comments from classmates to help ease their pain in such a difficult time.This has weighed heavily on my heart since his passing. I understand the world is different; however, just a simple comment for the family. It bothers me that he was from Stovall, as am I,  and the members of the class from Stovall have always felt like outsiders. That's why they don't come to the reunions. I've tried to get them to come, but they keep saying that's how they feel all these years later. Please try to include everyone no matter where they came from. The world is already divided, and we don't need to add to it. The gap needs to be closed. I know that some of you may be friends with Don's wife on Facebook and may have reached out in that manner. I salute you for doing that. Try to reach out on more platforms.  We are not getting any younger, and it means a lot to the family. I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but I just wanted to share my own personal feeling. This has really bothered me. I had to get this off my chest. Best regards.

Don was a very valued member of our Reunion Committee.  But beyond that, he was a super nice man.  I know several of us are friends with Deborah on Facebook and were trying to keep up with how he was doing before and during his surgery and post surgery hours.  It is very sad that he is gone too soon.  He was our "photographer", and we never knew when  he might snap a photo.  I just reset my password for this site and pledge to check it a little more often to keep up those who may not be on Facebook.  I commented about Deborah's homemade pickle on Facebook last Spring, and at the next reunion meeting, he brought me a jar of her delicious pickle.  I thought it  was so nice of him.  We were unable to make his memorial gathering at the home, but Jimmy and I did go out to the house the day after he passed and took some items and visited with Deborah.  She said he had not felt well in some time and had several health issues, but the surgery  was on a condition they were not aware of until just a few days before he passed.  She said Don did not feel good even last year at the reunion meetings and at the reunion. I think it is to be appeciated that he was there, and helped with the reunion even though  he probably did not really feel well.  We need to keep Deborah and their daughter, Crystal,  in our prayers.  


We had some people come to our 50th that had not been in a while, and it was great to reconnect.  For those that did not make it, we missed you.  High school can have lots of good memories, but it can also have painful ones for many.  I am sorry anyone ever felt badly or excluded in high school because they were not from Oxford.  If I ever was unkind to anyone from Stovall (or Oak Hill), it would not have been intentional.  I attended church every first Sunday at Stovall Methodist.  Mama often parked near your house.   My mother was from Stovall, and the town cemetery has my grandparents and several uncles. After church, we ate Sunday lunch with Miss Mary Taylor, had the coldest Pepsi's in North Carolina at Linda Harris' store, and stopped by to visit either my aunt and uncle, or Mrs. Daisy O'Brien or Virginia Burch.    It is an interesting side note that many parents drive their children from Oxford to Stovall to attend its  excellent  school of choice.  Times do change.  We all change.  We are at the age where we have all had to deal with lifes ups and downs.  We are the Class of '69.  Let's always live up to our motto,"None so fine as 69" and be there for each other.  Thank you Kathy for the reminder,

Today I attended Chris Gresham's funeral as a friend and as a member representing the class of '69.  It was a beautiful celebration of a Christian husband, father, and granddaddy.  He was spoken of by so many as being a fine and dedicated family man and church member. Danny and Jane Williams

Chris Gresham was a very good Godly man.  May he rest peacefully and his family find God's peace in their hearts knowing he is in God's holy kingdom.
