Comments:Hello Everyone, I have been in Orlando since 2006. Prior to that my husband and I worked in Africa as expats and traveled a lot. He as a telecommunications engineer and I worked with the US Consulate and US Embassy. I am working on a degree in criminal justice, better late than never and we are now preparing and looking forward to the next adventure! I know many of you are retired, but I am just getting started. My husband was told that he would never walk in again in January 2006. We did not accept that as our reality. He is walking and much more thanks to God and a new medical breakthrough utilizing robotic technology.

Now living in: Aurora, IL
Date: Saturday, May 29, 2004
Comments: Hard to believe it was just 5 years ago that I was down there for the 25th Reunion. Life has a way of going on by. I am still in Aurora, but I have gone back to teaching after staying at home and raising my children and doing home day care for 14 years. I am finishing up my 3rd year back in the classroom. I am teaching 3rd grade and loving it. They are old enough to laugh at my jokes and young enough not to give too much attitude back at me. I am working on my master’s degree and will graduate next June. My oldest daughter starts college this fall, my middle daughter (a soph in h.s.) continues dancing and will be in Sarasota with the Sarasota Ballet this summer and my youngest daughter (5th grade) continues with her love of the theatre in a summer program here at home. Say hello to all at the 30th, as I am unable to attend due to multiple committments at home. I will think of you all and raise a toast that week-end. Faith

Been bouncing around the Northland most of that time, with short stints in Texas and Colorado. “Hi” to Pat, Mike, Mike, Laurie, Joan, Micki, Johnny, Carrol, Man – to all you good folks! And a moment to remember my best friend Paul. To those of you responsible – Thanks for all the hard work that went into putting this together – kinda makes you a little melancholy…sniff!

Comments: I only dimly remember so much- and that would be my fault- but it doesn’t always seem that long ago either. Now I’m in Texas, and finally working on that Psychology degree that I thought about at Gulf. I have been married for 25 years, have 2 children and 4 grandchildren (and I will be free of the last child soon- free at last!!). I did a 8 1/2 year stint in the Army and am still in the National Guard. And I have this strange urge to hear from any of you who remember me.
