Here are the two men I depend on most.  The man on the left is Jim Gritzbaugh, my husband. We have been married over forty years now. He takes very good care of me. He is the one who takes the pictures of  Minden Memories Get Together to put on the website for us. Roy Glenn is the one who welcomes our guests and gives our invocation at the Minden Memories events. When I was growing up and going to school at MHS I spent a lot of time at Roy Glenn's house but he was never home. His sister Jo Ann was one of my dearest and best friends. We missed having JoAnn and Richard with us today. Both Jo Ann and Richard wish all of you well.

Here is another fine gentleman...Ronald Bryan.  He gave the invocation for the class reunion. Both Ronald and Roy played football for the Minden Crimson Tide. Wish we had been able to share some memories of Days Gone By while we were there. That would have been a real treat. Be sure to read Ronald's biography about the night he made the winning touch down that won the football game.
