"We're the best the best alive, cause we're the Class Of 75!"....
Well, summer is in it's peak, with another Independence Day behind us. I hope that everyone has had a wonderful summer thus far, with family & friends..Great memories are hard to come by these days, with many of us no longer in our teens, losing family members & school friends, seems more common than way back then....Sometimes I find myself day dreaming of the summer days, riding bikes till dark, helping my Mom put up green beans & corn in the freezer for winter, & helping my Dad take care of my Grandparents big yard, always dreading the fear of Poison Ivy..
Summer now is so very different..Our Grandparents now gone, & many of our parents, including mine have now passed, leaving us with sad hearts but wonderful, loving memories, that forever will make us smile & laugh..I think THAT is what life is all about..
What we make it..not what we make....
Many learn too late in life that it's not about how much you have in wealth by the end of life, but rather how many memories you have made or been blessed with, in your life....
As I close, I want you all to think about that, and know that TODAY you can make a memory for loved ones and strangers..
Take time to help one another, take time to love one another..
Take time to sit back, close your eyes & remember all the memories God has blessed you with, & then go out make & share the same kind of memories with others..
Lastly...I have sadly again, had to open the "In Memory Of " page & add two more names..I often keep the pictures of classmates who have passed, on my desktop for weeks before posting..Not because I am lazy..but because I can't bare to say good-bye..
Classmates who have passed in the past months are as follows..
Gary Horn, passed unexpectdedly at his home November of 2016, soon after, our dearest Mike Gumbert, who everyone knew as Spanky, Gumby, Orson passed away.
They are joined by classmates Pam Barker, Tim Anderson,
Donna Browning, Rick Tate, and more recently, Jolene Yardly & our caringly, funny Craig Rohrer...
Life is about making memories......
Until we meet again...
