Classmates we've lost.

The Phoenix area attracts lots of folks.
April 17th we had a mini-reunion here, Phil Hubbart, Emery Schomer and Dick Jennings (  with wives) came for dinner to my condo for a get-together.
Pat Kretsch was here in March and we had a nice visit.
Bill Bowes from the class of '55 and his wife Bev [ Collins] '56 (Jim's sister) were here and we had a great meal and visit.
A couple of girls from '56 were here, too and it was lots of fun. So much fun that I married one 4/7/06.
Nice visits were from Phil Hubbart , Ray Nolin and Dick Jennings (Dick actually has built a home here with his wife Sandy '56). Phil is due again in April.
I went out to Sacramento to see Bill Allred and we had a super week-end while I got to hear his wonderful band. Anyone who hasn't heard his work really should. I am in awe of the quality of his muscians. (That's his "St Louis Blues" in the background).  Bill has a concert scheduled in the area in September.
I missed Daryl Townsend who was here briefly but his schedule was full. Too bad, he missed some great steaks I cook on the grill with an Indonesian marinade. Phil and Dick will attest to that.
Del Moore was in the neighborhood, but we didn't hook up, though I think he's coming to my reception later in May 2006.
Rock Island-West is closed for business, I've come back to the QC.
