Thank you so much for thinking about my son,  whether it was through prayer or contribution to his Medical Fund or fundraiser!   I am truly grateful and moved by the response from my classmates to my son’s accident and recovery!  He has progressed from no weight on legs to walking with a walker.  Will still has a way to go to be 100% functional but we are very thankful that he is with us to be able to recover.

Again, thank you for your kindness and generosity, it will never be forgotten.

El Campo Little League is building a new facility.  It is inside the city limits of El Campo.  The old facility that we all grew up around located by the American Legion Hall was in desperate need of upgrade and the cost would have been prohibitive compared to the cost of building a new facility.  The website for the project is located at   There are fundraising opportunities being conducted for the project.  One of these are park benches that will be positioned throughout the facility.  Other ECHS classes are funding these benches for $2,000 each.  They are metal benches with the class year engraved on them.  When Bobby Little and myself toured the facility and heard this we thought "Class of 1969 should be a part of this project".  So we are in the process of taking donations from classmates to accomplish this.  We're thinking that $25 is a fair amount but please send whatever you feel compelled or can afford.  Make the check out to El Campo Little League.  Print "Class of '69 park bench" in the memo section.  It can be mailed to me at the below address.  Thanks in advance for anything you can do to assist in getting this accomplished.

Thanks for the support!
