(Norman) Keith Davis passed away on August 26th, 2002. He left such a positive impression on all who knew him through his 12 year illness, two liver transplants and six subqsient surgeries. He showed an amazing amount of grace through out all these years of illness.

He leaves 7 grandchilden, his parents, four brothers and sister and me, Martha Spence Davis. Keith and I had two children. Bethany and Nathaniel.He is sorely missed by all of us who knew and loved him so dearly.

I appreciate the many acts of sympathy during our time of loss and thank all of you for the memories of our time together in school. The outpouring of love continues to be a great comfort to me personally as
I strive to make a new life for myself in Evansville, Indiana where I returned to work in the Bernina Sewing Center shop still owned by my family.

With a thankful heart,

Nellie passed away in 1999. I talked with her sister this morning.

Our beloved classmate and friend, Ronny Waycaster, passed away on Saturday, March 3rd.  He fell from a high deck at his home.  Ronny pastored Fairfield Bay Baptist Church in Fairfield Bay, Arkansas for many years.  He will be dearly missed by his church members, family, and friends.  Ronny had requested cremation and that his ashes be strewn over Greer's Ferry Lake and the golf course, two places he loved to spend time.

Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
