1/10/2015 Belated Deceased Info - This note from Tom Carlson: "My father Bertil Carlson died May 11, 1990 in Escanaba , Mich. He worked for Cherry Hill Schools from 1958 to about 1965. He was Asst. Superintendent, elementary principle, and athletic directory at CHHS. We only lived in Inkster in 1959. Attended John Hill. However I remember a lot from that short period. Always remember going to all the Friday night basketball games in early 1960s. Riverside high was tough. Haston high was a team CHHS used to beat."
9/26/2014 Another note from Marty Callison '75 "I just read my previous comment and it wasn't my intent to be insensitive to those who have lost loved ones. My wife (Maria) had recently finished her first chemo session. (Ovarian cancer). They got it all during surgery but recommended 3 sessions of chemo . The prognosis is good (stage 1 level b) She is only 46 (yes I stole from the cradle.) I want to let Pat Houlihan know that my daughteris is starting her senior year at San Diego State and they won't take Brady Hoke back. Also the closest I've come to a hole in one was about a foot but not to worry I did make my par."
