In Memory

"Death can show us the way, for when we know and understand completely that our time on this Earth is limited, and that we have no way of knowing when it will be over, then we must live each day as if it were the only one we had. Life is so fragile; EVERY DAY IS A GIFT . . ."

This page lists the names of our deceased alumni. We have very limited information regarding the dates or circumstances of their passing as well as where their path took them after Waltrip up until their passing. If any of our information is incorrect or you have information concerning these alumni; please notify us by clicking on link below at bottom of webpage.

We were saddened to learn of their passing; so this webpage was created so that we can pay tribute to their memory and to know that they will not be forgotten. You may also post your memory of these classmates on their In Memory page. Click on their name below and then click the "Post Response" button. Please be honorable to their memory in your posts.

 "To live in hearts we leave behind, Is not to die."

NOT GONE
you are not gone, not really.
feeling you, knowing you, sensing you-
it is more real now than any long ago touch.
we have marked your resting place; a stone stands where you sleep
and we come to it on occasion to remember what made you, you.
we miss your smile, undeniably but in the missing is a joy,
an unexplainable, resolute sunshine that lingers carefully like some untold secret.
we touch your name engraved there
like a father touching his child for the very first time
and there is this, this internal knowing.
one that surpasses memories, one that overwhelms remembrance,
one that confirms the exacting power of the present
and tells us that you are not gone, not really
and we are, after all that has passed, still one.
