(September, 2001) Thank you and everyone concerned for the cards, e-mail and phone calls. You have no idea how much it means to me to have so many family, friends and classmates thinking and praying for me at this time. This last year has been full of blessings and trials. Keith (class of '62) and I were blessed with a wonderful grandson born 9-22-00. My daughter Dana (30) and son-in-law live in Georgia. I spent six weeks there helping out with the baby, etc. When I returned home to California in November 2000, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had two surgeries, chemo for six months and now radiation for six weeks. Hopefully. when the radiation is done I will only have to go back for check-ups and no more treatment.

On the brighter side, my youngest daughter Kim (26) was married this July and the wedding was just beautiful. My dearest friend, Lany Martell, came all the way from Tennessee. Ed Harrison and his family came from Redding .

Carol Bonner ('64) and Jesse Bonner ('69) who live in San Bruno also attended. It was so great to see and spend some time with them. I received a call from Pam Langendorf (Shaw) this week. She said that she had a total knee replacement this July and is doing good. She plans to have another by the end of the year. It was so nice talking to her and she still makes m e laugh. We go back to elementary school at Pedro Valley when the classes were in houses ('55). I was telling her about your e-mail newsletter but she said that she does not use a computer much.

Thank you all again for all your concern.

(July, 2003) As of May 1, 2003, Keith is retiring. It seemed like it never was going to happen but the time has come and we are so excited! Keith went in to work one day last week and told the boss that it was his last day and he was retiring. The boss thought he was joking. Keith picked up his tools, shook his hand and left. They all thought that was so cool! Of course if you know Keith he was planning on doing this all along, no parties, etc.

We leave tomorrow for Atlanta for 5 weeks. Dana is due April 22 bu t thinks the baby will come sooner. We get back May 15 and will await the birth of Kim and Jamie's daughter (Due July 2)

This is going to be a busy year as we will be selling our house in Clayton and moving up to Lakehead, CA where we bought a house on Shasta Lake.

We are both so excited that we can spend more time with our family, friends and be able to do what we want to do!
