He said, "I tell you that this poor widow put in more than all the others. For the others offered their gifts from what they had to spare of their richesg but she, poor as she is, gave all she had to live on."

S . f' ' N We Q 1? .xi V' ' r ' I X 'Li Mrs. Williams is so nice, she calls us Sugar and Spice. She tells us reading is fun, in the shade or in the sun. Arithmetic, we all agree, has to be learned by you and me. She teaches us we can have fun when our "A-B-C's" are done. And after the final bell does ring, we can play on the swing. She has a heart of gold for the young and for the old. She loves to hug us all, the short and the tall. So, we wish her the "best" as she takes a well-deserved rest. By Kimberly Randolph David Randolph Daniel Fiandolph Kelly Randolph This yearbook is lovingly dedicated to Mrs. Naomi Wil- liams, who will be retiring this year, Best wishes and God bless you! 2 MS ISA GIV R SOME STUDENTS REMEMBER HER l really like Mrs. Williams -M stern, but nice -- a teacher, nurse, a beautiful person, great with little kids and wipes away tears.

You are so rare. How can I tell you what you mean to me? When there is no way to put it. You're so kind, so sweet. How else can I say it? I know that I love you. That is all I can say. But if I could put it just the right way, I would tell you how much I love you. - You are the person I care for most .. . Mr. Don Karr, Principal I just love you so much.

But one person alone is truly an empty life, but because you are my very special friend my life is no longer empty. You have so many qualities to make you a wonderful friend. You are there to share the ups and downs of my life. You are the sunshine of my glad days, and the rainbow of my sad days. Thank you for always being there to listen, trying hard to understand me, and somehow knowing how to help. You are the rose among the thorns in my life. You give me your time and your interest so unselfishly. You shelter me from the storms of life. You know me as I am and you understand where l've come from, and where I am headed. You've accepted me for what l've become, but you still encourage me to grow. My friend you are the best part of hard times, the brightest of good times. Thank you for giving me a gentle push when I falter, a kind word when I'm lonely, a guide when I am searching, a smile when I'm sad, and a song when I'm happy. ' Our friendship is like a rosebud, with love, honesty and caring. The rosebud will bloom into a beautiful rose. As long as we continue this caring, the rose will never die and nor will our friendship. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God for sending my very special friend to me. You, my friend, are truly a special gift that no one can ever take from me, for God has blessed my life by giving me a very special friend like you.

Who cares what I think? cause I love all my children, even if I have a little drink. T I They all call me a drunk, but I know each of their names! And those kids that are confused, well, they say I'm to blame. I always told those kids I love them. But they said they never heard. I only hit them once or twice. Not hard, I give you my word! Maybe I got a little mean sometimes, but only after three or four beers. I was only trying to make 'em mind, but they would all end up in tears. And now that they are older, I think and I take long walks, I wonder if they might send a letter that I could find in my old mailbox. But never a word from those three kids. Guess they never think about me! Please, dear God, l've never asked before. I pray you'll hear my plea! I pray everyday now, Lord, and I haven't touched a drink. I feel such sadness and grief. I'm shaking so bad, I can't even think. Maybe death is the answer, hey Lord? This just isn't workin' out. I haven't heard from nobody. I'm getting myself out of this mess! Please help me, my God. Can't you show me a sign? With all this pain and sorrow, is everything going to be fine? For forty long days and nights, I've been sober and I pray. l'm feeling a little bit better, I think l'II call them. Well, Lord, what do you say? 662-0223 .. . John Hamilton, Jr. I waited for a long while "Dad," the voice said. "Yes!" I said, with a smile. "It's been a long time, Dad. We've all wonderedg no one knew. l'm glad you're alright, 'cause you know, I love you!" My eyes were cloudy with tears, now our start was fresh and new. Thank you, dear Lord, Thank you for everythingg for coming through!

Children By Summer Soto A LAST FLIGHT Seven happy astronauts train for Challenger's mission. The first teacher in space prepares tor her lessons. They all get ready and go into the shuttle, but the flight is delayed. They wait for a while. lcicles melt off the shuttle as the temperature rises to thirty-two degrees. lt's time for another go. Everyone waits anxiously. "Five, four, three, two, one, lift-off of Challenger!" People watch with excitement, The smiles of the relatives and friends of the astronauts suddenly turn to grief as the shuttle explodes. The control tower is still talking, not knowing what has happened, but soon the talking has stopped. Bits and pieces of the shuttle fly everywhere. Immediately ships and helicopters look for debris and hopefully bodies, Newscasters stayed on the air for hours. They would not go off the air until they had heard from NASA. Some say it was the ice, some say it was the rocket boosters. The rocket boosters are the main suspect in the space shuttle tragedy. Meanwhile, searchers were in water, on the beaches looking everywhere for pieces. A lot ot pieces were found on the ocean floating. Some were found on the ocean floor. Memorials were being held all over America. Sorrow filled the world. One service was held at Houston Space Center. The President and his wife were there. They comforted every one of the family members that were present. People around the nation had a moment of silence while people said prayers for the families. Meetings were held to try to find the cause. A lot of magazines had pictures of the tragedy and the astronauts. Investigators looked at the pictures for hours. Other countries showed the tragedy and sent condolences to the President and the families. We were sending things up there. lt was so common, we were starting to get careless, but from now on we will keep a closer eye on the next shuttle flights.

As years go by, people sometimes begin taking each other for granted. They start getting married at the wrong time for the wrong reasons. After several years, the couples often realize that they are two totally different people. They fight and argue over the silliest things that really don't seem to be important. When most people think of their immediate family, they think of their dads, moms, sisters andlor brothers. I grew up taking the family for granted. At least I did until one day my mom sat me down, and began telling me things that I did not want to hear .. like "Your dad and I are not happy living with one another anymore." I told Mom that I didn't like living with my sister, but I had to because she was family. Mom said her situation was different. She said that she and my dad had made the decision to live apart. My world crumbled, I was only six! What was I going to do? Dad moved out ofthe house. I missed him all the time. He saw me on the weekends but it just wasn't the same. As time passed, I discovered that Mom and Dad both loved me, and I had to admit that they seemed happier apart. I guess things were working out. . . Mom, who loves music, introduced me to the piano, which I now love to play. On top of that, Dad got me interested in sports which I also really enjoy. Actually, I began thinking I could be happy this way. When I was nine years old, my mom introduced me to a friend of hers named Andy. At first, I didn't know how to react because my first thought was, "Two dads?" But I started liking Andy and he was kind. He helped me with so many things. Three years later, Mom and Andy decided to get married, so on one Thansgiving holiday, they were married and I was my mom's maid of honor. Their happiness is what I wish my mom and real dad could have felt. Now I have a stepdad and although it isn't my "immediate" family, it truly' comes close to feeling like it. Ali of this has taught me to wait until I am ready to make the commitment of marriage - just as a true Christian would desire. 39 LOTS OF WAYS T0 STAY IN SHAPE kep Play A and ties.
