Reunion info (several) on down.....
Received this great email from Bob Wallis and he asked me to pass it along:
Dear classmates of '56 and '58,
This past week, Rubena (Hennessee) Wallis and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. Who'd a thunk it !!!!! We have 3 sons and four wonderful grandchildren with another "on the way". As an update, I graduated from OU in '62 with a BS in pharmacy and have spent my career as a pharmacist and as the president of a 9 store drug chain in the OKC area. Currently, Bena and I live in Edmond, OK. She is looking forward to the new baby's arrival and another opportunity to "spoil the daylights" out of him. Right now, I'm working for a national cooperative as a regional marketing consultant and expect to retire soon. God bless you all and Bena and I are looking forward to seeing you '58 folks at the reunion in August.
You '58-ers, don't forget to get your reservations in for your 50th on August 15-16.
Also a good news email from '59 classmate Jerry (Sasser) Childs saying that all the family illnesses - after surgery, hospital stays - have resolved and everyone on the mend. She and Ron and family appreciate all the prayers and concern on behalf of their family members (grandchildren).
Received email from Jean (Prescott) Keith, class '57. Jean married Jack Keith in '57. They moved to Texas where Jean still lives. Sadly, Jack passed away in 1992. Jean is currently in Lawton taking care of her mom who is terminally ill.
While I hate to hear sad news, always enjoy hearing from classmates.
