David Hood and I were classmates in second grade in Killeen at Avenue D Elementary School, which is now City Hall. I remembered him only by name when I learned he and Christine were planning to marry in 1998. David told me later he remembered I won second place for my drawing of a fire prevention poster and he remembered what I drew! I had forgotten what I drew.
