1A) Charlene Hickman Worrell and Family

1A) Charlene Hickman Worrell and Family

This is Charlene Hickman Worrell, her husband Dub Worrell, and the grandchildren they are raising. After a conversation on the phone with Ray, Charlene sent a couple of photos and this greeting.

“So sorry I cannot attend, but my family commitment keeps me from coming. My retirement plans did not include raising 3 kids . . . and going to soccer and baseball games . . . but the Good Lord had another plan for me as you can see. My two biological grandchildren and their 1/2 sibling all live with us up here in BlueBell Country. Thank goodness we're here and not still in Houston. My husband and I adopted the 1/2 sibling so we could keep them together. They are 3, 5, and 7. As you can imagine ~ life is BUSY!!!!

Hope this reunion will find everyone in good health! Please tell everyone 'hello' for me. Charlene"

Karla said, "Some things never change - best friends are still best friends. I hope the young folk have a BFF as wonderful as Judy - Best Friends Forever!"

Sorry to hear that Alton (Al now, I think) won't make the 50th Celebration. But he sent a current photo along with this greeting:

"Hello everybody! I hope y'all have a fun time at the reunion. I am alive and well. We (my wife, Judy, and our 2 dogs) live 6 months in Austin (Lake Travis Area) and 6 months in Colorado (the Pike's Peak area). Our winters are spent with the kids and grandkids here in Texas and summers in Colorado as camp hosts at The Diamond Campground. Come see us if you can ! We live full-time in our motorhome...see our pictures on our Facebook page.

To Judy Kennedy: My wife Judy and I were in Salado on Saturday the 20th at the Stagecoach Inn.

Enjoy the reunion! Alton"

K) Sonny and Elaine Jones, on Honeymoon

Clyde (Sonny) Jones writes in his autobiography... "In 1991, I married Elaine. We have a "tax & bookkeeping" company with 200 clients, and stay very busy. I guess I should say 'she stays very busy' .... I only work 25 or 30 hours a week these days, but I'm still doing music, and have an eight piece horn-band called "American Boogie". If any of you old buffaloes ever see us playing near-by, we do 60's, 70's and 80's and I'd love for you to come out and hear us...you won't be sorry!! "

Sonny has much more to tell. Be sure to read all, including his testimony of a miraculous (and evidently life changing) experience in his life. His autobiography is linked through his name in the right sidebar.

Ray sent a couple of pictures taken at Mimi's Restaurant in Bee Caves, Texas this Spring. He commented, “I deleted two others that made me look old and fat.
