Chelsie Brewer's death affected alot of the kids at East, my daughter was very shook up over it. I don't think the kids have forgotten her either.
It seems death happens to the kids that you least expect it to, the ones that seem to have their whole life mapped out before them. Gone too suddenly and before they had a chance to experience life. So sad.
That was the wreck that Chad Stepp died in. Anthony Collins was in that wreck also.

Wasn't one of the ones in that wreck also paralyzed? It seemed like that wreck kicked off a four to five year cycle where one or two West High students would die every year.

I graduated from West High in 1985, and it has always seemed like our graduating class was cursed. We've had a lot of deaths from a variety of causes:

Don Smith - Died in a small plane crash in 1986.
Andy Courtney - Suicide
Jack Hawkins - Suicide
Tonya Tankersley - Car Wreck. Fell asleep at the wheel after working a late shift.
Scott Fleemon - Car Wreck
Robbie Morgan - AIDS
David Pharris - Died in his sleep a year or two ago.
There was also a girl who died of cancer shortly after we graduated - Mariette Peters or something like that
I've heard rumors that others have died, too, but don't know for sure.

We lost our Senior Class President not long after graduation in a car accident---Steve Jones. Steve was so talented. I remember him and his band singing "Free Bird" during a talent show at East. He loved music. During our Sophomore year Chris Bible died in a motorcycle accident that happened close to the high school. Chris was always smiling---the kind of smile that made his eyes disappear and lit up his whole face. He was always making people laugh--never sad.

I grad. in 96 from MW.Some have died in car wrecks(most of them were caused by drugs/alcohol) or just O.D.ed.It is so hard to watch people you care about slip away.What can we do about this epidemic??

I've been reading this forum with much interest over the past few months. Brian Roach and his brother, Stacey, were raised as cousins to me. Brian died when I was 8 so while I remember it, it's interesting to read posts from those who knew him as a peer. I was much too young at the time to appreciate the dynamic between him and Pam. My grandmother never got over his death and mourned for him until she died.

My grandmother kept a scrapbook from approximately 1968-1974. I think she cut out every car accident, murder, or drowning during this time, especially if it was a child who died. I've recognized most of the names mentioned on here who died during that time frame. It's one thing to read the newspaper article of their accident but another to hear the memories of people who knew them.

Thanks for keeping their memories alive.

Does any one remember Annette Self? She died the summer after her freshman year at West.It was a horrible jet ski/boat accident.It was so sad.They had lost her dad not long b4 the accident he had a heart attack and fell over dead in the pulpit of his church.She was a friend of mine and it sent a shock thru all of us.I think 2 many young people think they are invincible until something tragic happens.Sad but true.
