Children, grandchildren? If not human how about dog, cat, etc? Names/ages?

I have three children: Rollan- age 39, Cassie- age 37, and Emily-age 30. I also have five grandchildren, ranging in age from 4 to 20.

What elementary school did you attend? Hamilton, Lafayette, Irving, Catholic School, somewhere else other than HP?


What have you been up to since you graduated?

Life! Moved to Indiana to go to school, graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Social Work, got married and started a family. Moved to Colorado in 1980, and have been here ever since. Raised three kids, and enjoyed a long career working for a non profit agency serving folks with developmental disabilities. Although retired, I continue to work in the field part time. Got divorced about twenty years ago, but my ex and I have become best friends, and will probably grow old together.
I have been fortunate to share my life journey with my best friend, Naiomi, who also moved to Denver. Our kids grew up together, and we continue to enjoy this adventure together. We have also kept a close friendship with Betty and have seen each other throughout the years. Along the way, we connected with Donnie, and get together for long, fun dinners a few times a year.

Anyone from our class that you would like to hook up with again that you haven't spoken with in years?

I am looking forward to seeing everyone!

When was the last time you were in Highland Park?

It's been at least ten years, during a visit with Betty.

Are you retired or going to retire soon? What do you want to do in the next five years?

I am retired, but still working part time. In the next five years, I want to continue enjoying my kids, grandkids and friends! Life is good.

School Story

Over time,I have come to realize how fortunate I have been to have friendships that have lasted a lifetime! I have found that very few people grew up in a small town and knew everyone they went to school with. We were lucky.
