Thirty-four years ! Over 10% of us have passed on that we know of. Some that haven't been accounted for or haven't joined the "78" web site could have gone on as well.  I'm thankful to be living, but I haven't earned or deserve that right. I've been through unimaginable stress for several years now. If I was an average person I'd be insane. I was already halfway there so I've been able to cope. Mercy... pray

Hello Classmates,  I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I might be over 50 but I can't wait until our reunion next year to party again with everyone!  Give me a yell if you need any help with planning or anything at all.  Also the class of 83 is looking to have their 30 year reunion during homecoming next year.

Peace out-

Wow! It's hard to believe that 8 of "us" have passed on in 2014 and the year is not 2/3 over yet. So sad...49 of "us" are gone from the Earth. Thanks Dale, for all that you do and maintain!

I'm sure that many of you know this. But, sadly, Terry Spangler passed away either Friday night or very early Saturday morning. Pray for his family.  I'm not sure of arrangements.

What happened to Terry ? So sad.

Terry Meade told me and I found this in the Roanoke times:  Terry Lee Spangler, 54, of Dublin, passed away Friday, August 29, 2014. Arrangements by Mullins Funeral Home, Radford.


So sad to have lost yet another classmate and 2 in one week!  Prayers to the families that peace may find them.

So sad to hear about Terry, I have fond memories of him. We had behind the wheel, driver Ed  together, and home room.  We had talked a couple times on fb.,  God bless his family

Debbie (Craig) Seagle is not in our class.  I think she may have been in the class of 76??  There are no plans that I've heard of for another reunion attempt since our failed attempt for a 35th.

Another amazing weekend! Ten years have passed since the last reunion. That's nearly 520 weekends (October 2008). It was a pleasure to lay aside a couple of days to catch up with old classmates and friends! Some made a huge sacrifice in traveling great distances to socialize, visit, and reminisce about the past, discuss the present, and speculate on the yet-to-come. I didn't want to leave the Merc on Saturday night. I was absorbing the whole scene. My heart was overflowing with different emotions; joy, sadness, thankfulness, appreciation, camaraderie, friendship, respect, awe, admiration, etc. I left with a deeper realization of "who we are". We survived the merger of being from rival high schools and gradually layed down our guards (Dukes and Orioles) and made the transition to gel and conform into a class of unity and respect for our fellow Pulaski Countians. We went from being 8th grade punks to 9th grade punks (the youngest class in the school), to being "one". We will always have the distinction of being the first class to fully go through the transition and through all four years of PCHS. I know I never talked much back in school. I was pretty invisible and unknown. But my mind was always thinking, and my heart was always desiring to be loved and accepted. I hope that I can make up for some of my shortcomings and inadequacies from the past by conveying my thoughts to the readers of this wonderful web page. It is truly an anchor and a refuge for those classmates who wish to "come home and visit" our friends and family (PCHS '78). May we all love and be loved. In closing, I want to thank the class officers and the reunion committee for all of their efforts over the years. Through their unselfishness, they have given their time and creativity to strengthen the bond of "The Class of '78", and moreover, for as long as we remain on the Earth, they have helped to reunite and solidify a chain that cannot be broken.

I’m sorry I missed the gathering at the train station.  The entire weekend was great.  I think Ed enjoyed himself as much as I did. Having dinner at the Merc really brought back memories for me.  I am thankful for the people who worked so hard putting the event together and for the ones who took time out of their busy lives to come home and reminisce of days gone by.  We are looking forward to the next one.

Dear Class, 

I just want everyone to know that Jeff Kirk passed away Thursday evening July 15, 2021  His passing came two weeks to the day of him learning the he had pancreatic, liver, and lung cancer  Some of you may better remember him as Abby or Abercrombie the Zombie. I believe that for most of our school years, his family lived across from Fast Shop on South Washington. The funeral is this evening (July 18, 2021) at Riverview Church of God, which is on Route 100 just before crossing the New River Bridge going towards Hillsville

Sorry to hear of another classmate passing. We wll send up prayrs for comfort and peace for Jeff's family. We all are getting there day by day. Being ready is the most important issue.
