Snooky Ford Great Man and Athlete

As I was new to the South and esp Alabama,(my Dad was an officer in USA at Ft McClellan just returned from SE Asia), I loved my time in 'Bama . I loved my friends at JHS, Mark Johnson, Doug Daniels and Harold Sims. We went to numerous High School Football games. We were in awe of Snooky. He was a tough, rough Senior football player who ran the hell out of the ball in the style of players of old 'up the middle'. Charles Van later emulated his runs for us, the Class of '69. Later, when Snooky was killed in action in Vietnam, we were stunned. A stud like him gone? No way. The ceremony on the football field with his family accepting praises for him and his Mom getting roses was too much grief. Snooky, I never said a word to you, but your death (in some small but great way) inspired me to fly for the USAF for 20 years and continue to fly for Delta to this day. My 7 kids know of your sacrifice. I will remember you and JHS for the rest of my life.RIP SNOOK

Snooky,

I took your mom a rubbing from the wall before she died. Course, you wouldn't know Frogtown now. It's been 40 years almost, Snook. I remember that summer afternoon when you came home for the last time. Every now and then I get out the old annual and go back to that senior year with you and Ron and Kenneth in the backfield. There hasn't been three like that since, Snook. Ron to the right, Kenneth to the left, and Snooky straight up the middle.

You have been missed, as are your mom and dad, and Tony.

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
