       Jim... can we talk you into sending us a current image of you... maybe you and JoEllen?       

 Jim, JoEllen, and the family are doing well             03/05/15

 Our son Darren is still an ICE agent for the feds (Immigration and Customs Enforcement)

  •  His oldest is 25, working in the medical field, and has not found a man that measures up to her Dad!   

  • His second oldest is married and going to school along with her husband. She will graduate in two more semesters, I think, and will teach little ones.

  • His other middle child is completing her first year in college.

  • Cole, his youngest, graduates in the spring and Darren will find out the meaning of “empty nester”.

Our daughter Melissa is back from Minnesota.

  •  Of course she is enjoying balmy weather there!! She sent a picture of her thermometer about ten days ago and it said MINUS 36 degrees!

Our ‘baby’ Chelsie is a busy mother of four

  •  Ages 13 down to 4 years old

  • Of course she is enjoying balmy weather there!! She sent a picture of her thermometer about ten days ago and it said MINUS 36 degrees!

  • Her husband is a dentist who just opened a new business… bad for me because it is only ¼ mile from a Cabela’s brand spanking new BIG store, nine miles north of Denver. Going to be good time going there for a visit!

Well, I’ve carried on enough! Luv and miss you all.    Jim

                                               P.S. Maybe something like this from others would be interesting to classmates. After all, we don’t do much more than sit around watching the neighbors go by!

A Note From Linda:

Thank you for inviting me to your class reunion. Gary loved them so much. He talked about the planning meetings being as much fun, if not more, than the reunions. His friends were very important to Gary. He loved to laugh and stir things up. Each and every one of you were important to Gary. Treasure your family and friends.

  A Note From  Connie:                                                                                            12/22/16

I have twenty-five grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren and I'm still in Sweet Home Oregon. My husband Leonard passed away January 29, 2015 of cancer. I'm a missionary for the LDS church and love every minute of it. I'm very active doing gardening, scrap-booking, reading, and writing my journals that I've done for many years. I've attended some writing classes here in Sweet Home at the college and I also love the outdoors. My daughter Sandi lived in St Helens, Oregon and is still working for Safeway. My daughter Cheri is a director of a mental health school and loves her job working with Children that need special help. Randy and Garen live with me and help me with many things that I can't do for myself.

Garen builds furniture and beautiful cabinets. I'm doing very well and very healthy at this time. I have taken in an 87 year-old elderly woman that was abused and I'm caring for her, which takes a lot of my time also.  I'm still just a very busy person and loving my life, but I do miss my sweetheart very much, After his death I've had to learn the computer and all of this new technology that we have to learn today to get along in this world we now live in. He did most of this for me, but gave me a crash course just before he got too sick, and I've learned the rest with trial and error. Thanks for doing such a good job with the news-letters. I love reading them.

Sandi's daughter had twins boys last year and they both weighed one pound each, and it's been a struggle for her as she still feeds them through a tube to the stomach, and one still has a trac to breath, but we are blessed that they have lived fourteen months and now weigh about twenty pounds. The Lord has been good to us.  My great-grandchildren just keep coming... I've had three just in the past few months.

About all that I can think about at this time.    Love,  Connie Watson
