No one who met "Bobby" would ever forget him. He was among my first students at Bradwell. He wore his hair much longer than most of his fellow male counterparts at school so he had something of a hippie persona.

I should not have done it but one day I saw him walking down the sidewalk in Savannah. Like many of my fellow teachers, I was trying to augment my income. I was working as a bank guard near Abercorn and Victory. With my uniform, hat, dark glasses and pistol at a distance one could have taken me for a law-enforcement officer. Using the command voice I had been trained to utilize as an army officer, I yelled at some distance, "Come here, Long-Hair!" Initially he balked with the question, "Me?" Soon he came in a trot. When he got close enough to recognize me, he took a big sigh of relief and then began laughing. He was a good man. I should not have done that, Donita.
