  3. Coach Brockman,

    I went back to Cetennial with my wife and my sister yesterday. It was the first time I have been back since I graduated. Seeing the Hall of Fame and walking through the hallways by your office brought back a flood of good memories. My mom may have passed, but the memories will always remain. Thank you for your kind words, and best wishes to you and your family.

  4. John, Jamie, Paul and Steve, my condolences to you all. I was visiting my mom a few weeks ago and had heard that your mom was not well. I loved singing with her in choir and growing up with her as another mom at church….truly wonderful memories that I will cherish. Blessings to you all,

  6. Ruth was such a sweet soul… I know she is in heaven but my heart goes out to her family. I am sorry for your loss and grateful I was able to know this lovely lady. I remember her singing patriotic songs at Primrose Veterans Day ceremonies, classics during Ice Cream Social ragtime piano sing-a-longs, and not to forget her serenades to Lucas Dog. Always with that beautiful smile and spark in her eyes. Love you Ruth
