Joe and I were in several classes together; he was a good friend. I still have a piece of wood jewelry that  I made in art class that Joe took to his shop class when I needed holes cut into it. That was the kind of guy he was, very nice. So sad that he can't be there at the reunion. It would have been nice seeing him again.

Bonnie was a sweetheart. Her sister and I worked together in phone customer service at Blue Shield when it happened. She and their family were devastated.

Hi Dale,

Remember the fun we had with the class plays? I remember the class trip. I have a pic of you, Jean Swinford, Barbara Bucher and Shirley Royce (maybe close to the Empire State Building ??) You were the only one with sunglasses..... Hope to see you at the reunion!

I remember our senior class trip where Jean wore cute hats the whole time. She went absolutely gaga when she looked out our bus window in New York and saw my handsome actor uncle. So sorry that she is no longer with us - Dale Anne Craven
