I just want to add my comments about the team who spent a lot of time to make the reunion such a success.  A  BIG thanks to Julie, Pat, Esther, Genelle, Janet, and, of course, Bill.  Thank you for the memories and I hope that the reconnections made will continue.

It was wonderful to see everyone who came. I so missed seeing Sherri Berkey and Sandy Lane! Sandy and I have had some lovely long talks on the phone since then. She's in a good place in her life, challenging, but good. I really want to see everyone next time and that can't come soon enough for me.

Check out a few pictures that are being downloaded....more in the future.  The four I posted were taken on Friday at was a fun time.....a lot of comments about how it has changed, how we have changed and how glad we were that we had decided to come.   Thank goodness for name tags and the yearbooks. 

If you click on SHARE YOUR PHOTOS a page will come up with some of the pictures that have been posted.  If you were at the reunion and took pictures please consider posting them for all to see.

Steve and I went to see  "Jersy Boys" last night at the 5th Avenue...It was a night of song and dance...It brought back so many memories of the great music we had.

I had my full size 12th Man flag flying today in Denver!  Now I am enduring the Bronco game!   Got back from Bavaria 2 weeks ago and now off to P.V Mexico for week with Joy (Joyce Bauer)  and two other girlfriends.  Joy's b-day is the 19th so we will celebrate.  Feeling great and life is good, all love, Robin

Julie, not to be out done by Mr. Utley I would like to add another "funny".

Two Bellevue High School cheerleaders are sitting at the end of a pier on Meydenbauer Bay looking at a full moon on a clear evening.  One says to the other, "which do you think is closer, the moon or California?"   The other thinks for a moment and then exclaims.......duh, can you SEE California?"

So sorry to have missed this summer's reunion. A late flight from Philadelphia made it impossible. I'd love to see photos or hear stories of who was there and how fun it was. Anybody? . . .

Julie, Just heard Bob Walters, Diane's husband had a stroke at home last April and passed.  He had not been well for some time.  I haven't spoken to Diane yet, left a call.  Please post this.  All is well in Denver, Robin

To Wolf Ruetz,

I've read about the floods in Bavaria.  It looks like the worst is north of you, on the Inn, but hope it's OK where you are.

Hi Larry, all is well with us. We live 60 meters above the Salzach River, so no problems. We did get over 5 inches of rain within 36 hours and many culverts were plugged, backing the water like a dam and within minutes the "dam" broke causing the severe damage in Simbach. Thanks for writing. Wolf

I found this picture online of Wolf's home town, Laufen, in Bavaria.  Isn't it a shame some people have to live like this?


P.S.  Laufen is on the far side of the river.  On the left, across the bridge is the town of Oberndorf, Austria, where Silent Night (Stille Nacht) was first played.
