Hello Joyce,
I was looking at your class listings for Mansfield High School, and looked for my father's name under the class of 1965 and could not find it.  His name is Joseph R. Walker (Al Walker's brother).  Not sure if he was not in the yearbook, but has been to his reunions including this year's.
