"It was good to
hear from you. Paul got out of coaching when we moved to
Columbia (MS) and I just quit working for Stennis Space
Center. We own a B&B which I run and Paul is Director of the
Exposition Center and Recreation for the city. Things are
great. Paul spoke at the Petal High School Football banquet
last night and we saw people we haven't seen in 30 years.
Thanks for adding us to your list. We would love to attend
the reunion if we can. We were there in 63 and 64. Thanks
again for your e-mail and we hope to see you in April. Keep
us posted. Brenda"
