Thanks MaryAnn, Bob and all who put the Friday night mixer together.
What a feeling to bring back those memories of fifty
years ago and to re-kindle the friendships.

Saturday's Party was one of those "Can you Top This" events.

With the great meal and ambiance of the Interlachen club
to be topped by our own master of piano and wit Jack Hansen
leading us on and the fabulous music of our classmate
Jim tenBensel and the Barbary Cost Show Band.

It does not get any better that this.
Thank you to Karen and crew.

The Sunday's memorial service was the frosting on the cake.

Our reunion weekend ended with our classmate pastors remembering
our fallen friends and classmates. Jim tenBensel summed
it all up on Saturday Night about our fallen classmates with that song
"I love you and you can't do any thing about it".

Thanks Ford,Tom and all who put together the memorial service
for a great ending to our weekend.
