No children of my own. Three married step children, six grandchildren.three great grandchildren
Yes! Attending Reunion

Everything is status quo. I am still living in Florida and now have over 48 years as a flight attendant withUnited Airlines. I commute to Chicago for my trips and still fly mainly to Shanghai or Beijing. I recently flew a trip to Paris and another to Rome. I stay home on my vacations, not wanting to travel anywhere.

I had to put down my ten year old Tsbby in November. I just adopted a little girl kitty two months ago. She was a bait cat used in dog fights and is missing her right hind leg and part of her tail. She is safe now and enjoying her new home and has integrated nicely with her two big brothers.

School Story

I was the cashier in the school caffeteria all three years of high school when the school lunches cost only 35 cents! I kept this volunteer position because it allowed me to come fifteen minutes late to PE class in the afternoon.

I have been with United Airlines for 47 years. Anniversary date is 1/25/67

I have just entered Northwestern Theological Seminary to earn a Bachelors Degree in Systematic Theology snd Christian Apologetics.

Everything is status quo with me. Trying to learn ancient Hebrew. I have about as much comprehension as I did in Mr. Butterfield's cemistry class.

I will celebrate 48 years as a united airlines flight attendant later this month. I just turned down a $100K buyout. Am I crazy, or what? Just decided to keep flying until I reach my final destination. I know where I will make my last landing, just not when. Will wait for permanent wings.

Linda Layburn Secrest has left an In Memory comment for Clay Burton.

A very Hapy New Year to all my classmates. Over the Christmas holiday I was at my Nephew's home in Virginia where he has no land line, wifi, and very sketchy cell service. It is amazing how isolated one can feel when celebrating in the "boonies". Nevertheless, it was a blessed occasion, though chaotic with very excited grandchildren relishing Santa's overindulgence.

I was surprised to learn of Clay Burton's passing when I first read the memorial page months ago before our reunion. He was my neighbor, living just two doors away. Our mothers were friends. The last I saw Clay was at one of our reunions. I had heard his mother passed away. Does anyone know anything about his sister Barbara? Does anyone know any details of his passing?

Congratulations  Jodi,  on becoming a great grandmother.I know you are anticipating the event with great joy.

Sherri and corresponded briefly since we both live in Florida. She was confident her next round of chemo would be successful and said she would see us at the next reunion. She was very upbeat snd optimistic. She will be sadly missed.
