Cheryl Godwin (Grymes)

Thank you Maggie, Ed and the rest of the planning committee for including me in your reunion. Although I wasn't officially a member of your class, I felt like I was.  I was known as Russell's little sister and he certainly had a presence about him.  He cherished his friendships and would have loved the reunion. I appreciate everyone who came up to tell me Russell stories and that you remembered and missed him. I told this story to some who were there but wanted to pass it along to everyone.  A few weeks ago, I had a guy contact me who knew Russell at UF.  He said he had some video footage of him back in the 1970's. We talked and he sent me a video that he had taken with his 8mm movie camera. It is very typical Russell enjoy life boating and water skiiing. He truly loved life - he just couldn't learn to love himself. I have attached a link that should take you to the video. You will need to cut and past it into your browser. Hopefully, it will work.  If it doesn't let me know by email cgrymes@bbbsnefl.org or go to my Facebook - Cheryl Godwin Grymes - and send a friend request.

Great reunion.  Margaret is the BEST.  She keeps us all focused, which is no small task these days.  I didn't have a clue about adult ADHD until the reunion committeee started to get together.  Great fun!   I hope the next five years greet everyone with good health, happy families and peaceful hearts.

Thank you to everybody at the reunion who gave me a little tighter hug and extra kind words of encouragement

Great responses this past week ! Enjoyed em' all !

Thanks for posting the pictures as well...tell me we weren't that young

Beautiful thoughts from little sis about Russell, and who can forget that smile ?

And to C. Parker, still the best dressed Wolfson 69' grad, wonderful thoughts about the next five years

Thanks so much to all the committee members for planning another fantastic reunion for all of us to enjoy.  It was a great party and such a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with old friends.

I don't know who is in charge of maintaining the web site but it is so well done and such an excellent tool for all of us to stay in touch.  Thank you!!

Carole and I have been unable to attend the reunions because they have conflicted with the Jewish sabbath, so I was happy to be able to at least view the last thirty minutes of this one on streaming video.  Kudos for that.

The idea that we are all about to hit the half-century mark is pretty scary.  It seems like just yesterday that Mr. Meckley was chasing me around the school and wound up suspending me over sideburns.  Ah, the sixties!

Best regards to everyone.

Bill

Many, many thanks to Margaret, Eddy and each member of the reunion planning team!  It was a fun weekend!  I enjoyed visiting with folks at the Friday evening gathering and then at the Saturday party.  We are blessed to have a group from our class who are willing to invest the time to bring us back together.  Again, thank you!

Sorry to have missed you Bill.  You always were a fine young radical. How simple sideburns seem today!  Take care and keep posting.

Chris, I turned into a fine old radical conservative!  wink

Bill -

As fellow Vandy AND Wolfson alums sorry you had to miss the 45th Wolfson (it was GREAT to connect with so many) - hope we can connect at the 50th!

My wife, Margaret Hooper (Vandy alum also) and I have attended all our 5 year reunions @ Vandy, but this was our first Wolfson reunion.  Must admit we will be more inclined to attend the Wolfson 50th and not the Vandy 50th!

Will be interested to learn about your conversion to "radical conservative!!"

Greg, thanks so much for the picture of you, Tube and Russell. You guys never lacked attention from the girls. I also enjoyed the picture of Glenn - always loved that hair.  Carol Kuhling, where is she now?  If any of you have pictures of Russell from days gone past, please send them to my email at cgrymes@bbbsnefl.org. My mother, his daughers and Angel love seeing the old pictures. You all are so special to me and my family!

Dick, regarding my conversion to radical conservatism, it's been so long that I don't remember!

Actually, "radical conservatism" probably isn't the right term.  I am mostly libertarian.  I've always had that impulse, it's what motivated me to defy the school's hair code our senior year.  When I decided to go to graduate school in economics, the University of Chicago seemed like the obvious destination and that is where I wound up.  I missed Milton Friedman by five years but did have the opportunity to study under Gary Becker, George Stigler, and Bob Lucas.  The end result for my politics is that they are mostly synonymous with the Wall Street Journal editorial page.

The real change in my life occurred around the time of our marriage, when Carole and I gradually adopted a more observant approach to Judaism.  That proved to have profound effects on our lives and our careers.

Actually, I think Bonnie got it right.  You guys are the best!  Bonnie, didn't see you at the reunion.  Missed you!  Xoxo Christy
