Comments:

I married my high school sweetheart 5 days after graduation and celebrated 51 years, 1 month together this last June. Unfortunately My husband passed away August 3, 2015. It has been a very sad and extremely hard time for our family as I lost my younger sister a week later.

Looking on the bright side, We have been blessed with 3 great sons, 3 daughters (I had to wait on) and 5 lovely grand children. February will bring a new addition to our family. Our oldest granddaughter will be having the 1st great grand child.

Ed & I enjoyed traveling all over the world with the Marine Corps before settling down in Kerrville in 1981. Recently I retired as Manager of the IS Dept for the Electric Company in Kerrville and started working the next day with my youngest son that lives in Fredericksburg. I'm still very active and enjoy swimming, biking and water skiing. My oldest son (Alan) lives in Boerne and works for AT&T Services in Architecture and Planning in the San Antonio office. His wife Ellen is Assistant DA in SA. Both Alan and his wife (Ellen) are graduates of Colorado State. Alan has his MBA from Our Lady of the Lake and Ellen her JD from ST Mary’s. They have 2 children. The 2nd son (Steve) is General Manager at Tanner Electric Coop in North Bend, WA. His wife (Corrinna) is school nurse for several schools in the area. They also have 2 children. The youngest son (Michael) has his own computer service in Fredericksburg. Michael is also the recipient of 2 liver transplants. He is currently participating in the World Transplant Games in Australia. If you would like to see Michael at the world games, follow the link under my homepage. Go to "Links" at the bottom and select "Our Story". Michael wife (Lisa) is a very talented Journalist for the Fredericksburg Standard and a graduate of UT Austin. They have 1 son. Our granddaughter (Brittany)Married in December 2014 and gave birth to a sweet baby boy In March, 1016. Austin and Rory are both 20 now and attend college. Connor is 15 He is a natural soccer player and has been since he was 4 years old. He is so quick on his feet and I swear he knows where the ball is going before it is even kicked. Logan is 11 years old and your normal active boy, but still our baby. Of course he wouldn't like to me to call him that! He plays soccer also.

I am so sorry about the passing of your wife. I too lost my husband of 51 yrs last August 3rd. I do understand the heartache you are feeling. It will take time to feel better but reach out to your friends and family. Find joy in those memories.

Johnny, do you know if there is golf available on Saturday before the reunion? My Son from Wa is flying in to attend the reunion with me and the other sons. He is planning to bring his clubs if there is.

Thanks ,

Joyce
