A few years ago, while searching YOUTUBE for the Blood, Sweat and Tears version of "Fire and Rain," I discovered this video which honored the now deceased members of Piedmont High School Class of '69. The faces look familiar, they are very much my era and Piedmont appears to be similar to my own suburban high school. The video was created by Robert Nelson, himself a member of the class.
The video itself is a wonderful tribute to the now deceased classmates.
At their 40th reunion, they paid tribute to those deceased classmates and teachers; choosing 1 alumni for each of the departed classmates. Each classmate was given a eulogy.
The eulogies are well done, it gives one a desire to have known these individuals being eulogized. They all experienced adult life, a couple died within 20 years of the high school graduation, others died only in the last couple of years, but all of them before their "time."
Also eulogized were several teachers and the librarian. They too were wonderfully remembered.
The Piedmont High School Class of '69 must have had some extraordinary people because they have shown great caring and respect for their teachers and classmates who were a part of their lives, a part of their school community and who have now gone on to meet their creator and God.
