Alumni Stories

To view the rest of your Sheldon High School Classmates you must first

Donald De Vries

Class of 1961

I was not going to post this information to the Sheldon, Iowa alumni site, because I assumed many of you might not like or care for this, and also the writing might be atrocious . But. I'll just post it here, and warn people that it could get: somewhat coarse, with perhaps some unpopular thoughts and ideas, and to remind everyone this is a fictional depiction, that no characters are drawn from reality, depicting any singular person who actually really existed. Finally, I love where I grew up, and I love all of you, and I love all the Sheldon thoughts and memories I have been left with. (Some car makes and models and some names may have been lovingly borrowed.)
