Class of 1969
(Passed date unknown)
I had completely lost track of Jim and we are all guilty of not keeping in touch. This month I heard that once again, I lost a friend. Jim, like myself just blended into the woodwork at school and I am saddened by his loss. His smile is what I remember but can say one thing about him with certainty and that is Jim lived a life that was full and he harmed no one in this earthly life. Wish I could tell you folks more but again our class loses a good man.

Our dear friend Jennifer passed away too soon. She was a young wife and devoted mother. We always thought we would meet up again sometime soon. But time and distance does take us apart. We must work harder to keep in touch and keep the high school friendships going strong. Our high schools memories are the strongest. I will remember many beautiful days spent with Jennifer and she will be missed and thought of often. I will think and prayfor Ken & Kristin.
