Happy Birthday David! I typed this yesterday and never hit send, got interrupted and never returned, ugh. I hope you had a nice peaceful day with family and friends. I just learned of your wife's passing. I am so sorry to hear of your loss and want to send my sincerest well wishes to you and yours. I would love to see you at our 80th get together. I promise not to talk of sad times nor hug you too long. We will talk of fun times, your music adventures and FP days of times gone by. Wishing you good days ahead and laughter.

Colleen and I grew up together in Midland from the day we started school. We were VERY mischeivious and adventurous together along with a few other of our graduating class. One memory we laughed about only a few months ago was while picking berries down in Puyallup where the train ran past the fields daily and slowed to a stop or almost to a comple stop, we decided we would hop the train and get off when it stopped in Sumner. We never thought about how we would get back to the berry field. But lucky for us the car we started to get in had a hobo in it and scared us half to death and we ran, only to find out later from our parents that that train didn't stop again until it reached Chicago! I could share a thousand plus memories of our friendship over the years. I will miss her hearty laugh and conversations. She will be sorely missed by all. My condolences to her family broken heart

Happy Birthday Ina! It's such a beautiful sunshiny day over this side of the bridge hoping it's the same there in Allyn so you can soak in some of those warm sun rays. Have a wonderful day with family and friends. Hope to see you this summer at the dinner gathering being planned. Can you believe we are all turning 80! Amazing is all I can say. Just dance and celebrate the day like you were 16 again even if it's just a trip down memory lane. Enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday Connie! I hope you have a wonderful day and do something special. Isn't every day you turn 80 so sing and dance in the rain, or stomp in a mud puddle which ever is easiest. LOL Would love to see you again this year at a gathering. Enjoy your day!!!

Happy Birthday Paul! Every get together we've had for the class of 62 I looked hoping to say hello and chat a minute or two with you. Jerry Wilder made it to the last actual reunion was great to say hello. We've made it to the end of another decade about to enter our 80's. Kinda crazy. Well Paul kick up those heels, dance a jig with friends and family and enjoy your day to the fullest. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy :)
