He was a awesome classmate. I want to share a story that I have told Danny in the past and to others bc it is a great story. This goes back to when we all were in 9 th grade. I went to Eastern before Northwood and we were playing Sligo in soccer. Danny played for Sligo. He and I competed again each other in a well fought game. I said then, thank god I'm going to NorthwoodHS bc I want to play with him. Then when I went to NHS and he wasn't playing soccer but football. I asked him why, and Danny said bc he really didn't like playing it. I thought that was amazing bc he was so good. Danny showed that he was great at whatever he played(Football-basketball-wrestling-track). We always use to joke about it later when we saw each other. It is something that I have and will always remember about Danny Miller. He will be missed.

Services were at the Collins Funeral Home in Silver Spring, MD on March 20, 2014. No further information was left with the funeral home.
I remember Annette from Mr. Becker's English class. She was a very sweet spirited gal. We didn't connect much at Northwood but I am sad. My prayers for her family during this time. May God's loving arms cradle you and give you peace and comfort.

Mitchell was miracle having fought an incurable cancer for 18 years. He was the most brave and courageous person i have ever known. Our hearts are broken and we will miss him forever
From Eric Goldberg on March 29th, 2013
Our hearts and prayers are with Mitch's family. Mitch was a great guy and always the life of the party. He will be missed.
From Patrick Hanlon on May 16th, 2013
Devastating news. My prayers go out to his family. I always enjoyed Mitch's company. Probably because he laughed at my kidding around and my antics. I will remember Mitch being in a great mode all the time and always relax. Will always remember senior OC and hanging out at NHS and parties. He will be missed.
A few other friends and I hung out with John during high school, but completely lost touch after graduation (as is so often the case). He was always ready for a laugh, quick with a joke and didn't have a mean bone in his body. He was usually the calm and sensible one in the group.
I remember one trip to OC with John that will always make me smile. If you knew John's mother, you knew that she was a very, I mean VERY, careful and slow driver. From Four Corners to OC took five hours instead of three. It drove John nuts and every ten minutes he would say "Jeez mom, can't you drive any faster?'. Every ten minutes for five hours...
Was glad to see John at the last reunion and we got a few minutes to catch up. Should have been more.
Pamela Fones Hemingway passed away August 14th after fighting a long illness. The family chose to hold private services in Virginia. Please feel free to leave other tributes and memories that you have of Pam to share with the class. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
:*( sniff...sniff...) I lost touch with Pam but she was one of my best friends at Sligonia. She used to call me "Taco"! We played intramural soccer together for years (in our jeans 'cause we refused to wear those awful burgundy striped gym outfits! Remember, Vivian?) Pam was extremely talented and played a mean Bobby McGee and Blackbird on the guitar! She's feelin' no pain and singing with the Angels now. "Only the good die young"!! Loved you Pam and thanks for being my good friend!!
From Jessie Strother on January 29th, 2012
I knew Pam as a friend in the 90's and into the 2000's. She had a good heart and was fun loving tomboy. I will always miss her. Jessie
On behalf of the Burdine family, it is with great sadness to inform those reading this and/or who may have seen unexpected postings that Brigitte was tragically killed this morning (December 29, 2010) in a traffic collision. Brigitte was walking in the vicinity of Culver and Jefferson Boulevards in the Marina del Rey area just before 2am when she was struck by a motor vehicle. The driver of that vehicle left the scene.
Brigitte was transported to the hospital and they were not able to save her.
Brigitte has touched many people in many ways throughout her short life. She leaves behind her parents, brother, sister, nieces, nephews, cousins, and many, many others. Her cheer, her smile, and outgoing personality will live with all of us. Words cannot express the sadness that the family and many are feeling. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
Respected, L.A.-based video game voice casting director Brigitte Burdine, who worked on games including World of Warcraft and God of War II, was killed in a hit-and-run accident early yesterday morning. She was 48.
Burdine was hit by by a car while crossing the intersection of Culver Boulevard and Pershing Drive at about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to police and outlets including the Los Angeles Weekly. She was transported to a nearby hospital where she died later that morning.
Police are seeking the owner of a dark-colored sedan, possibly with front-end damage. Anyone with potential information should contact the LAPD's West Traffic Division detectives at 213-473-0234.
Working in the field since 1989, Burdine ran the Brigitte Burdine Casting Agency, which had just this week been renamed Coherent Crow. She also worked as an actress, director and producer for many film and television projects.
Her video game credits include vocal casting work for dozens of games from publishers including EA, Activision, Namco, Blizzard, Sony, Microsoft, Capcom, Warner Bros. and more. Highlights include the Killzone and Spider-Man game series, SOCOM 3, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and ModNation Racers.
Burdine was known to share her knowledge of the industry through summits and workshops with audio leads and voice over actors around the industry, encouraging new talent rising through the ranks.
"Brigitte was the only voice director I ever worked with who left her emotions at the front door," said Mark Morrison, Regional Sales Director for Unity Technologies, who worked with Burdine on multiple projects, in an email message to Gamasutra. "She never had an ego and exemplified humility and all the fun and passion that the video game space admires. She was a quiet giant who reveled in problem solving and making clients 150% happy."
From Kathy (Murphy) Corsillo on January 19th, 2011
WOW! What devastating news....Such a huge loss for family and friends. I was friends with Brigitte in High School and knew that she would always do well for herself and she sure did. This is a terrible tragedy - So sorry for all.
Roger A. Schrader, a member of the class of 1980, died in a tragic automobile accident on the morning of February 28, 1980. Classmates and friends were stunned to hear of the news of Roger's death and critical injury of Roger's brother, Michael. A moment of silence sent prayers and thoughts to Michael and to Roger's friends and family.
Principal Bob Mullis said, "Roger was an excellent kid. He had never been in any trouble whatsoever. He was well-respected. He was just a good, quiet, all-around kid."
In a presentation concerning his Easter trip to Russia, Roger Shrader proclaimed, "I am proud to be an American. You do not understand what freedom is until you do not have the liberties that Americans take for granted."
Indeed, the thoughts and feelings of Roger's friends and family will be with him always. - 1980 Arrowhead
Roger said goodbye to me when he left school He promised he would bring his school picture "tomorrow." Later in class, we heard the sirens, having no idea they were rushing to the accident.
At the funeral, his mother told me the picture was on his dresser and I should come by sometime and get it.
I never did. I was young and afraid of her grief and afraid of saying the wrong thing.
I wish I had that picture now. Roger was kind and funny and always so nice to me. I think of him every time I hear "Baker Street"
I miss you!
From Rose Bruckner on August 4th, 2016
I remember that day that Roger had that terrible accident. I offered to give Roger a ride home that day because he normally did not drive to school. We had 3rd period together and then we would go to work. I spoke to him 15 minutes before I heard the ambulance. I will never forget when I heard on the radio on my way to work that he had passed away in an accident. I wish I would have given him a ride. He might have still been alive today.
John Sterling, known to his friends as J. B., died on June 19, 1979. Although J.B.'s physical prescence is no longer with us, his spirit remains in our school and our hearts. J.B., a quiet spoken person, had many friends and acquaintances to which he shared his courage and good humor. Many people miss J.B., but they will always remember him as a brave, courageous person who smiled until the end. - 1980 Arrowhead
