......LHS News......
Originally sent October 19

I am sorry to report the passing of yet another of our oldest LHS grads. T.P. Brammer, 95, of Lawton passed on October 15. Last week we lost Jo G. Andrews. Andrews graduated in 1932 while Brammer and Byron Aycock graduated in 1933. (according to Constitution). Aycock is also deceased. Great story on the three and another '33 classmate Harold Short in the Lawton Constitution on May 25, 2008.
T.P is survived by sons Jerry and Stephen; daughter Mary Jane Hamburger (Kenneth). Jerry Brammer is class '56 and I know some of these others are also but do not know year.
Services will be 2:00pm Wednesday October 21 at Centenary United Methodist church in Lawton.

Another great article by Charles Ellenbrook in Saturday (Oct. 17) Lawton Constitution. Charles writes a monthly article - Wichita Mountains Field Notes. This article (full page - page 1 section B) is about Medicine Park and the surrounding area and the beauty and color(s) of the autumn/fall. Several beautiful pictures. For those who just attended the class '59 reunion (Sat night at Medicine Park), you got a preview of Bath Lake, the Falls, and the walkway. It's a wonderful time of the year, makes you want to be outside. The areas around Medicine Creek are wonderful to sit out/picnic and enjoy natures show.

I have written a couple of re-caps of the recent 1959 - 50th reunion. I did not send them out in LHS news as somewhat lengthy and I thought some might not be interested? But....I did decide to post them on the blog. So, if any would like to read comments and other notes about the reunion, you may do so. Two separate posts!

I hope those (class '54, et al) who just got together in Sedona, AZ will show (pictures) and tell (who was there and what they did)!

Hope you will take a minute to visit link below. UTube video tribute to the Murrah Bldg. Bombing Memorial in OKC. Poignant photographs of an American tragedy. The girl singing is my niece Tara Gill, daughter of brother Tim & wife Terri. Do not know person who put this together and Tara did not know they were using her tape until someone told her about the post on UTube. She has been studying music - for several years now - and she is a Junior at...where else....LHS!

Sharing picture (above) that '59 classmate Richard 'Dick' Densley sent of himself and his new squeeze, Sammy!

Well, my Bill is most disappointed.....he had hoped the Sooners would kick some major Longhorn rump roast...but alas....not to be! Very sorry QB Sam Bradford was injured again. Bummer Sooner!

The rain finally quit a few days ago in the 'home town' so we are drying out and enjoying the sunny fall days while putting out jack-o-lanterns, ghouls and goblins, getting ready for the little intruders on October 31!

Regards to all.........Georgia
