Waddell was one who always kept you laughing nonstop. He was taken from us on October 29, 2000. He was one of many male cousins I was raised right next door to. It was a true blessing to have had him growing up with as a child and through my teenage years. I remember the many softball games he and all of us our siblings played endlessly. In the evening practically all day during the summer months. He was more like a brother than a cousin, because we all had a special bond. He and I were the same age but his birthday was one month before mine Oct 3. He will always be missed. With all of my love for one who was taken too soon. As we well know the Lord never makes a mistake. Juanese

We shared in the shock of losing President Kennedy in 6th grade.

Upon returning to school that Tuesday morning, conversations emanated about the shockingly tragic weekend we had just encountered.

Mrs. Durham, our teacher, said a few words of encouragement, and gave us a new assignment: we were to take all newspaper clippings and make a scrapbook of our beloved fallen President for remembrance sake.

My mother's eyebrows raised when I suggested such a thing! She did not want her papers or magazines cut up like that! Therefore, I could not participate - yet too shy to explain to Mrs. Durham why I did not bring anything to class.

 Mrs. Durham's class was enthused about such a remembrance.  Especially Waddell.

Havlyn  Adams,  a 'mouthy' classmate, just incessantly cut and pasted - until he had a full folder. This is probably the quietest I'd seen him.

 But the student that stood out the most in this endeavor was Waddell Brown.

Waddell just sliced up his mama's Life magazine, and a hideous , gigantic mess of a scrapbook was the result.  It's too bad he's gone now, for I'm sure he would be impressed that  I  actually met a few of the Kennedy  family members!

(He boasted about having the biggest scrapbook for years!)

Question: Did his mother ever learn what happen to her Life magazine?  Ha!  Ha!  Ha !
