Yes! Attending Reunion

I founded the Letterman's club and came up with the mascot name "Falcons". I even drew a Falcon and had patches embroidered for members. If I can find mine, I will bring to reunion. I played football, basketball and baseball. My younger brother Rudy was a freshmen when I was a senior. We lived in UN Village.

School Story:

As Salutatorian, I gave a commencement address called "The Child is the Father of the Man". My girlfriend was Cheryl Smith (cheerleader and yearbook editor).
This past year, I won 5 golds in the Senior Olympics, 4 swimming and triathlon (70-75 age group).
My son, now 25, is two years into being an Internet entrepreneur. Check out There is a chance he will be famous someday...
During the revolution there was a curfew. Walked home with Eddie L. to UN Village after partying on base. Eight Korean soldiers with machine guns fanned out across the road pointing their weapons at us. Hands up we surrendered and lived to tell the story.

Cheryl was my high school sweetheart.  We dated our junior and senior year.  She was a cheerleader and head of the yearbook project.  Magically I got a full page picture playing basketball.   Thanks Cheryl.  After high school we met in Marine County for a short road trip before she flew on to FL for college.  I was sad she was so far away.  I went to jr. college in southern CA and then on to Berkeley for my undergraduate degree.  We never got together in the college years.  If we had we probably would have been married.  I was definitely in love.

Twenty five years went by, I was divorced and single when I got a call from her.  I was in CA and she now resided in NJ, teaching.  Coincidentally, one of the 4 manufacturing plants I was overseeing was in NJ.  This gave me an opportunity to see Cheryl again.  We dated for a few months, but our time had passed or so I thought.  By this time Cheryl was in love with me, probably for the first time.  Eventually, I remarried a second time to a lady from Chicago and that marriage lasted 10 years.

Cheryl and I reconnected and shared emails periodically.  We also talked by phone a number of times.   She was a happy, intelligent, caring, delightful lady.  Cheryl will always be a special part of my cherished memories and will live on in my heart. 

I never knew that she was ill or was fighting any kind of illness.  In retrospect, I wish that I had been more in touch during her final years.  She deserved that.  Cheryl, if you are listening, I will always have some love in my heart for you.
