Dear class of '88
Sad news to pass along, "Trev" Andy Nelson passed away Friday March 31st, 2017 at his home in Chattanooga. I basically went to 14 years of school with Trev. Four and Five year old Kindergarten at Dug Gap Baptist Church and then 1st thru 12th grade. We played baseball, football, cub scouts and other things together over the years. I know everyone has their special memories of Trev. I know I do. He was always positive, smiling and the life of the party. Prayers go out to his mother Mary, sister Ashley Nelson Gallagher, and his wife Heather.
Gone to soon!

SCROLL DOWN FOR
Sunday August 11th, 2013..
I want to tell you that tonight at almost 11:00pm Robert Locke has passed away at St Joseph's Hospital in Atlanta. I had received a text from Leslie Goldberg saying she had heard that Robert had come down with pneuomia and was in critical condition. I called Robert's cell and his wife answered about 10:45 tonight. While she and I were on the phone, Robert passed away. She said Robert had been fine as of Friday and early Saturday morning around 3am he said he wasnt feeling well. They went to the hospital and things went down hill fast. Robert as you may know has had cystic fibrosis for as long as I have known him.
Crystal his wife asked for prayers for her and their two boys Rodriguez and Jeffson and her and Roberts family. She will pass along arrangements when she makes them. Robert was scheduled to have a Kidney Transplant on August 22. Robert would have been 44 September 22nd. He had told me that he would be sorry not to make the reunion as he would only be 3 weeks out from his transplant.
Robert and I have been keeping up with each other almost every two weeks as he has been waiting a long time for his kidney transplant. In that time Robert has shared his faith in God and Jesus as his savior and was always giving God thanks in everything from his family to his continued life here on earth. Robert has already had a lung transplant. I would call Robert TIMEX because he would take a licking and keep on ticking. God has a time and reason for everything. It is not for us to question why but trust that through Robert's life and death, the gladness and sadness of it all, someone comes to know Christ as their savior. A young life gone tends to make one question their own mortality and search their soul about what happens when we die, where we go and what life is all about. I hope thru Robert's life and early death someone will decide they need to make a decision about the most important choice we can make in this life, and that is to accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and receive eternal life in heaven. We do not go to the doctor unless were hurting and most people dont turn to the Lord until they are hurting. God can use sadness to win souls to Christ and change lives. I know, it happend in my life and I accepted Christ as a result.
"For the sadness that is used by God brings a change of heart that leads to salvation and there is no regret in that." 2 Corinthians chapter 7, verse 10 Good news bible
Robert no longer has Cystic Fibrosis and as I type this he has been in Heaven less than an hour. Robert you were the toughest guy I have known. Everyday of your life was a fight and I never once heard you complain. You would always say "God is good". God Speed Robert!
I wanted to pass along some sad news I read in the Sunday paper. Mr. Flanery a math teacher we had during our four years at Southeast has passed away. I remember Mr. Flanery had this cool trick he could do with his arm and a piece of chalk. He would stand by the board with the chalk in his fingers at the bottom of the board and would rotate his arm a full 360 degrees and would draw a huge perfect circle. I also remember a teacher that took the job of teaching math to mostly uninterested teenagers, (myself included) very seriously and he enjoyed telling a good story or joke to liven up the world of numbers.
Denver D. Flanery, age 76, of Tunnel Hill, passed away Thursday, February 10, 2011 at Hamilton Medical Center.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Phyllis Flanery.
Mr. Flanery is survived by a daughter & son-in-law, Kathy & Mark Opasinski of the United States Navy; 2 sons & daughters-in-law, Robert & Florita Flanery of Tunnel Hill and Patrick & Hetty Flanery of the United States Marine Corps; grandchildren, Stephanie Jane, Delia Jean and Kyung Joon Otis Flanery.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday, February 15, 2011 at 4:00 p.m. at the Pleasant Grove Chapel of Julian Peeples Funeral Home.
The family will receive friends on Tuesday from 2:00 p.m. until the service hour at 4:00. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Susan G. Komen For the Cure.

Dont Jump without a chute!
I remember having two pairs of parachute pants, a grey pair to look like the dude from the movie Breakin and red pair so I could have red paints, made popular by Wacko Jacko in Thriller and Eddie Murphy in Delirious! Besides having lots of pockets to carry junk, they actually helped me out. I quickly found out that the grey pair when you were seated, you could see stuff in the front pocket, meaning I could read cheat sheets, So I have to admit that in math our sophomore year..85" I would wear my trusty parachutes on test day..Sorry Mr. Dees..alas the truth comes out, I was not the Geometry Giant I appeared to be....if you need to cheat on a test..go to...
Hey class, I wanted to pass along this link to some t-shirts from the 80's. I got a big kick out of looking at all the things that were popular when we were in school. I hope if you have some down time, take a look and remember fondly these 80's icons.

Steve Swantic and I actually tried to break the sound barrier in Lower Alabama, Christmas break our senior year, on the way to see Pat McGuire after he moved to Pensacola. The speedometer was over 140! ..German engineering Haha! Once and only once in my life. Oh to have had a cell phone with a video camera on it and youtube. The world would have seen two 17 year old Idiots about to loose their lives in DumpTruck County, Alabama. True story ask Swantic, does anybody know where Swantic is, Steve where are you?
