Site Announcements

If you are not already a paid CFBRAA member I want to encourage you to become one.
Our association is doing good things and helping out many with special needs and scholarships.
We aren't doing as much as we would like to do and not as much as one would expect, especially if you or someone you are close to are in need of financial help.
We are limited by the funds we have available, so what we can do is modest compared to the needs.

Here is what we were able to accomplish this year with less than 300 paid members:
1. Helped 15 families in crisis situations, providing medical help, housing, utilities, clothing, etc. You provided nearly $11K in crisis support to families.
2. Helped 9 alumni families send their children to college, providing $6K in scholarship assistance.
3. Helped scores of new alumni with transportation, providing $4K for vehicle maintenance and fuel for the Alumni Support Center.
4. Provided $500 to the residents of the Alumni Support Center to help with Christmas presents for their families.
5. Provided $500 to the homes at BR as awards for the Christmas Contest winners.

Memorial services will be at 2:00 P.M. on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at Brooks Chapel with Pastor Curtis House, pastor of Harvest House Fellowship, officiating.

Ronnie Mooney was born on January 1, 1950 in Amherst, Texas to Thomas Cecil and Parrie Lee Mooney. He was raised at Cal Farley's Boys Ranch from the age of 9 where he learned his relentless work ethic that was second to none, and he was named All Around Cowboy. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from West Texas State University in 1974. Instead of pursuing a career in education, he became a Master Carpenter and could build absolutely anything imaginable. He enjoyed his last employment as a bus driver for CISD where he took advantage of every opportunity to teach and portray respect, values, and honesty to every rider on the school bus. He married Kay Higgins on July 3, 1991 in Canyon. He was a loving and devoted husband and prided himself on being a provider and a steady rock for Kay. Ronnie was an avid sports fan, supporting all local sporting activities at Canyon High School and WTAMU, but his greatest pleasure was following his grandchildren's sports. He also loved the Dallas Cowboys, hunting at Boy's Ranch, fishing at Lake Texoma, the Professional Bull Riders Association, and NASCAR. In general Ronnie was an honest, hard working, good dependable person that spent his life devoted to setting an example for his grandchildren to follow. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, C.L. Mooney.

Survivors include his wife, Kay Mooney, of the home; four sons, Travis Mooney and wife, Sandy, of Cameron, NC, Chad Higgins, of Amarillo, Ryan Higgins and wife, Tessie, of Amarillo, and Josh Higgins and wife, Marsha, of Wichita Falls; eight grandchildren, Bailey Higgins, Meagan, Morgan and Gunner Higgins, Austin and Hunter Higgins, and Tristen and Audrey Mooney; two brothers, Clifton and Weldon Mooney; one sister, Elaine Nickols; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family suggests memorial be to Baptist St. Anthony's Hospice, PO Box 950, Amarillo, TX 79176.

Which is worse, Jerry? The ones that we know left the Earth or the special "Brothers" we can't find because of the past? Had I made it to the rodeo, I would have seen Ol' Moon. He was in my dorm. 8)

both are sad situations. But there is hope that we can find the ones that are living and bring them back into the brotherhood, just as we were brought back. Death just reminds us that we are getting old and must make a special effort to enjoy and celebrate life as much as possible.
