Message: John, I just wanted to wish you and your family a blessed and wonderful new year and to thank you for Cougartown.com. This past year I was able to reconnect with a long lost family member, a couple of great girlfriends who I hadn't heard from in 25-30 years and a neighborhood friend Charles Beisel from Hollyglen who I have been trying to locate for the past 15 years. This would not have happened if it wasn't for Cougartown.com and your hard work. You are truly appreciated. Big Hugs and Kisses.

City & State: Atlanta
Message: HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know I'm happy to see 2007 bite the dust. Well, I guess it is only a number but, somehow/somewhere, a person has to draw a line to re-evaluate and begin again. So, I decided I am starting Grad school this January. What the hell, maybe I will finally learn something I can use.:) All of you stay in shape, eat right, and limit the sex. Or, you could just enjoy your life. Thats what is nice about living, you always have choices. Peace out, Jim

Message: Happy New Year to all of you. As has been said, 2007 wasn't the greatest, but next year, hopefully, will be better. I just wanted to let all of you know, who knew John Willcoxson, class of '63, that he passed away, over the weekend, of Bladder Cancer. The service for him will be held, January 3, 2008, at 1:00PM, White and Day Mortuary, on Sepulveda, just south of Rosecrans, in Manhattan Beach. John will surely be missed, by his fellow classmates, as well as his fellow TWA collegues. Kind regards, Linda Huthmaker collegues.

Message: Well , I am glad to see someone has the same sentiment for 2007. It definitely "sucked." Being a teacher with L.A.U.S.D., has made this year very trying. I hope the payroll department has a handle on the problems. To all you fellow "COUGARS", God bless you in the New Year. May it be prosperous, healthy, safe and full of Good Vibrations! Peace to all.

City & State: Redding, CA
Message: For those of you who may be unaware, Brian Wilson suffers from a form of schizophrenia, for which he takes daily medication. The medication regimen is designed to ward off auditory hallucinations. His wife, Melinda, says that Brian has "good days and bad days" - it depends on acheiving the proper balance of his prescribed meds. If they're off, even a bit, he can appear to be "out-of-it." It appeared to me that Brian was particularly moved by the performances in his honor. At one point, if you looked closely, you could see that tears welled up in his eyes. Loved Garfunkel's phrase, "gentlest revolutionary." Also, Brian stated that he thought Lyle Lovett's interpretation of "God Only Knows" was the best he had ever heard. I think few of us have had to face the kinds of obstacles that Brian has had to overcome throughout his lifetime. Granted, some were of his own making. The fact that at 65, he continues to create critically acclaimed music is nothing short of a miracle. Given his circumstances throughout his career, who would have thought that he would be the last Wilson brother still with us? Our boy joins a select and elite group of performers to be honored by the Kennedy Center - no small accomplishment - and not too bad for a former quarterback from Hawthorne High! - Gibby -
