Bob finally got me an up to date picture with his wife Peggy. He lives in Tennessee.






I get mail


Hi Larry, my father is John Wydick and aunt is Vida Lee Wydick. It is nice to see pictures of when they were younger, I have my Father's report cards from there and a few assorted pictures from that time period so it is nice to see what you have. Thank you for all of the work you have done to make this possible.

Larry -

thanks for the forward. Wydicks lived on the corner south of the Old Rock house where we lived. Ron and I got into trouble many times for going down to the Wydicks to play. Dad wanted us kids home when he got home from work!

I visited with Vida Lee at one of the Minden Hish School Reunions a year or two ago.


Dear John,
    Larry Crouch forwarded your letter -- and I'm delighted to receive it.  How well I remember John and Lavada as well as your Grandparents.  Right now I'm looking at the 1943 Minden High yearbook where Lavada signed "Yes Bobbie, ice cream and pop".  My folks had a grocery store first in Nashville and then on Hwy 43 about one mile from Nashville.  The school bus would stop at the store and I got her an ice cream bar and a bottle of pop (knowing me it was a Pepsi).  Please send Lavada my love.  And tell John hello.  I would like to know where they live and how they are doing.  Bob Thurman
