Comments: I sat down recently and looked through our class yearbooks to jar a few bittersweet memories out of my wrinkly old head. It’s amazing to read the notes written in the pages from friends that “knew me then.” I haven’t changed as much as I feared/hoped! I am living outside of Richmond, VA graduating with my MBA from the University of Richmond, & going back to work after years caring for my awesome kids (Daniel 16, Audrey 14, James Liam 9, Hannah 5). I was married for 12 years; long since happily divorced. My family is still near Odessa, FL, healthy and fine, and we visit often. I still paint in oils to make Mr. Whittemore proud; still work out with the intensity Coach Nancy Kinnunen taught me; and keep chickens and assorted critters “because you can’t take the country out of the girl”. If you read this, you are probably one of the people I’m looking for, so please email me!

My daughter Sarah is near perfect and will be graduating from High School in May 2007. My current wife and best friend, DeAnn, has allowed me to be myself for 14 years now, and I do the same for her. That’s just one small secret of having a great relationship! I’d like to hear from those considered friends…you know who you are!

After school, I moved to Dallas, TX in 1985 and began my career in automotive financing and lending with Volvo Cars North America. I got married in 1988 and transfered to Charlotte, NC in 1989.

I’ve done lots of traveling and seen some pretty fun parts of the world. Hope to see everyone at our reunion … Angi Essex and I are still the best of friends (31 years now) and will both be there!

Comments: I don’t even know where to start. The last 20 years have had a lot of ups and downs for me. I only attended U.S.F. for two years and then became a St. Petersburg Police Officer (1984-1996). I met my ex-husband (Alan Shaffer) there and we were married in Jan. 1986. We were together for almost 8 years and had two sons (Donny, now 15 and Matt, now 9). After being a single Mom for two years, I met my current husband (Paul) through a mutual friend. Paul lived in Ohio and the friend had moved to Florida and was working at the police dept. We married in Aug. 1995 and Donny, Matt and I moved to Ohio in Jan. 1996. Paul and I had Timmy (now 5) in Nov. 1996. Paul was already raising two sons (Chris, now 16 and Josh, now 14), so we have five boys between us. We live out in the country and and our boys play all sports and are in scouts. I am mostly a stay at home Mom, but I work part-time as a veterinary technician at a small animal clinic. We also have two dogs, three cats, one ferret, one ball python snake, and one rat. We hope to drive down to Florida for the reunion next year! I really haven’t seen anybody for 15 or more years.

Comments: Can you believe I gave over $100,000 to a con artist. Channel 8 is doing a story on Mike Farley who was engaged to my aunt. I bought over $100K in horses from him in the past year only to find that he didn’t own most of them. We also found out that he was engaged to at least 2 (most likely 3) other women at the same time as my aunt; and believe me, this is only the tip of the iceberg. The first half of the story aired last night and the second half airs tonight on WFLA TV channel 8 at 6pm. If you know this guy, please contact me. He also uses the alias Mike Johnson.

Comments: I graduated from Gulf High in 1982. Now, it’s almost twenty years later. That’s unbelievable. I’ve lived in the Los Angeles area since 1986 and am married with two small children. Besides being a full-time mom, I’m also a part-time criminal defense attorney after they go to bed. I represent prisoners in their appeals. It’s really interesting and about as much fun as being a lawyer could possibly be (which admittedly is not saying a whole lot). I would love to hear from my old (poor choice of words)friends from Gulf High.

Comments: Hello to everyone in the Class of ’82. I signed earlier but have seen many familiar names signed after I did. I have been married for almost 13 years now and have two beautiful daughters (12, 9). They look nothing like me which is a good thing since I now have no hair. We’ve lived in Orlando ever since I graduated from UCF. Still play my guitar every now and then and keep in touch with the ol’ Shadofax band members. John Batista and his family lives about 5 miles away from me which is pretty neat. Still hear from Rhonda Charlton and Kathy (Johnson) Jacobson quite a bit also. 20 year reunion is right around the corner. Best wishes to everybody who reads this!
