My sister Eara Burgess passed in 2003, car accident in Searcy. She married Jeff Loftin, Chris' brother. Eara was a handful but she was my little sister and I love her. That was a phone call I will never forget!
Chris died from an apartment fire at Harmony Homes. he was living with Jackie Fox at the time.
I remember when Dougie Sullivan died, he used to aggravate the crap out of me in class. Man was he an upper on a down day. I miss him.
Don't forget Steven Foster, he fathered two of my nieces and was a friend for years. He and my sister Eara were the best of buds, now both are gone.
Thanks for the walk down memory lane. Got another one! How many friends that you thought you would never lose touch with in High School do you still talk to? How many of the ones you wouldn't be caught dead with are now your friends?

My sister's last name isn't the same as, its Combs,but thanks Les.:)

Casey Love's passing broke my heart, he was such a nice guy, always had a smile on.

Ami Beard just shocked me, she was so nice and so beautiful.

I didn't know Jennifer Curtner real well, but what I remember of her she was a really nice girl.

My heart breaks for any family who loses someone so young, I know from experience that its something that takes a very long time to come to terms with.

Oh, and lets not forget a special shout to Mr. Sills. He wasn't a 'classmate', but he was a friend to all of the students of NHS and made us outcasts feel at home even when Mr. Bubba didn't.(Not insulting Mr. Parnell, he's nice outside of school but was an @$$ to me while I was there.) Mr. Sills seemed to get me better, he had such a huge heart and loved his students.
