Mr. Thomas, Thank you so much! I have my grandmothers class ring from Cimarron and I think it would be awesome if I could put it in a shadow box with her senior picture.

My Grandmother was a dedicated woman of her faith. She never missed an event of any of her grandkids, and while she watched from the stands and waited for our turn to perform she always had her bible, and her cup of coffee everywhere she went. I remember she also had a huge patience and love for her children and grandchildren. There was never a stray animal turned away from Grandmaís house. My favorite thing at her house was her cookie jar, as it was a little brown ceramic bear with a red scarf, and he was never empty.

Thank you very much for your help on finding information out on my family. I hope to visit Kansas soon to get a better look into their lived. My grandpa is James Richard Litton Jr., his father was James Richard Litton, SR and mother was Beatrice Tustin. My grandpaís date of birth is January 3, 1924. I didnít see him on the seniors list, but I realize this is in the middle of the war and I know he did serve in the military, so Iím guessing he might have left school to enlist. Again any information you have is very much appreciated. There is no big rush on any of this , as Iím just trying to build up a pedigree with as much information as possible for my kids.
