School Story

After high school I went to University of Dayton graduating in 1968.
Best Story ," the journey of or basketball team beating beating the number # 1 state rated Chicago Crane High School in over-time at Northwestern's McGraw Statium to go downstate".

Best football story :
was me having a conversation with coach Murney Lazier which in my junior year coach Lazier Walked pass me in the hallway without speaking which caused me some concern ;so I confronted Coach Lazier as to why he didn't greet me in the hallway? He said Rommie,"I don't care if you like me , I want you to respect me"
HOWEVER, AS A RESULT OF THAT CONVERSATION HE ALWAYS WITHOUT FAIL GREETED ME IN HALLWAYS !!

Dr K-Lincoln,
I want to thank you for your efforts to support two friends of mine that recently suffered strokes. After I read your book I wanted to share your book with two friends that experienced strokes. You not only sent me Two autographed copies of your book but you have also will follow up with them a personal phone call. Lincoln I cannot express how much appreciation and sincere gratitude your support means to the families of the victims. Your book will help encourage them to keep striving to stay positive and mentally encouraged. Your book and you are an inspiration for anyone having health challenges. God is good. I thank you for being my classmate and a wonderful friend. I am sorry we didn’t connect in high school but we have connected now and I thank you for book, your knowledge, your professionalism and the fellowship your support!! To all of my classmates please take the time to read ,”Working My Way Back To Me”. A Primer for stroke survivors , family members and caregivers.
Best Regards,
Go Wildkits,
