Comments: (What have you been doing for the last 50 years??)......(How about the last 10??)

Married and had Natalie. Divorced. Married and had Cinnamon. Divorced after 20 years. Single 13 years. Married Tom and have lived happily ever after. Retired from the City of Cheney after 22 years, then worked in the family business for 9 years. Quit the family business so I could spend more time golfing. As of today my index is 12.0 and I even play to it sometimes. I managed to get in 130+ rounds last year. We enjoy part of the winter down south and the rest in Spokane. There's no place like home. We love spending time with our family and friends. Life is good.

Best high school memory:

Going to a Sadie Hawkins dance with Darrel Leyde and no one recognized us. Picking up Judy Goodell, Bill Perry, Bob Bell and John Selden for school. Skipping school with Judy, Janet and Frenda. Graduating. Friends. Being nominated as "most athletic" with Wayne Hardan. Slab dances. Barn dances. Driving my 58 Chevy with the 348 and cruising downtown. Judy G. bleaching my hair for the first time and it turned bright orange. Riding Patterson's Rollercade bus home from skating. NOT going to the Senior Sneak only because I didn't have to stay the extra week. Many good times that still make me smile.

Another sad loss.  So many good memories of Bob (Lumpy).  Rest in peace Bob.  You will be missed - but remembered always!

Sherry - loved reading all you had to say in remembrance of Judy.  So well written and so many wonderful memories.  She spoke fondly of you over the years.  You and Joyce.  Funny that I lived down the street from you and didn't get in on those memories when we were growing up.  Looking forward to catching up on our way down to Grand Coulee.

This one breaks my heart.  Judy has been my best friend for 64 years.  When she was first diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis I looked it up and was so saddened at what I read.  Then I went into denial.  It's difficult to think that someone you've shared so much with won't be here some day and I could write pages of everything Judy and I shared.  The same wedding dress, participated at each others wedding(s), I was there when Judy had Terry and Barbara, I cried my eyes out when she moved to Seattle, but visited regularly and always kept in touch and shared everything. We attended every class reunion together.   We could spend hours and hours and probably days together and never run out of things to talk about.  I took a road trip to Grand Coulee to spend the day with Judy on March 31 and we had a great visit, but when it was time to leave we both knew this was probably the last.  Extremely difficult.  We promised to text every day and we did up until her passing.  I have always loved Judy like a sister and she will forever live in my heart and I will smile every time I think of her - which will be often.  Rest in Peace my friend and I will see you again.

It's taken me a while to write down something about my dear friend Ronny.  I have so many stories that I've been remembering, some of which I can't write down, but all in all they are wonderful memories of this very special guy.  First of all he was one of Darrell's best friends and Ron helped me through Darrell's death.  I loved his wit, his playfullness and his thoughtfullness.  I remember when he moved to Florida, came back for a visit and a bunch of us took him to the airport to send him back to Florida.  He was three sheets to the wind and stood at the top of the stairs of the plane crying and waving goodbye to all of us and we were doing the same.  We turned around to leave and we hear Ronny shouting at us again telling all of us how he loved us then the stewardess dragged him back into the plane again.  He was such a character.  I could go on and on, but mainly wanted to say how much I will miss him.  Always one of my favorites.  You will never be forgotten Ronny.
