Some are dead and some are living.
In my life, Iíve loved them all.

Kansas City, MO 64117

††††† †††† News since last reunion:Still single, still have the same job, still have the same number of kids, with the addition of one grandchild, and still trying to figure out what I want in life.

††††† †††† I do manage to keep busy, though.In addition to my regular full time job, I help my two brothers with McGrath Heating and Cooling, which they started last year.After working for H&R Block for nine years, I do income taxes from home and love it.I am active in my church and seem to get selectively volunteered for numerous committees and projects.I belong to an investment club that researches stock and we have accumulated a nice portfolio over the past few years.And I am starting to train for another marathon.I ran my first marathon (actually a half) last year at Disney World and am going to try to run a full marathon in January of 2005.I know that would be hard for some people to believe (Coach Summa for sure) since I really despised running the track when I was in school, but it has been quite an experience and I had a lot of fun doing it!I also enjoy reading when I have the time and have recently taken up knitting (which Iíve been told is for old people --ya think?)

††††† †††† And last but not least --why I hated high school:I was shy and did not make friends easily, some kids tended to be snobs, I was more interested in working (if I had only known), I struggled with self-confidence, and I really just wanted to get married and live happily ever after.What was I thinking?Well, you just never know what life is going to bring you.Or not bring you.

††††† †††† Looking forward to seeing our classmates of 1969.I loved school because ofa capella choir.Mr. Hurst was fantastic ab one of the best choir directors around.You knew what he wanted from you and you would do your best.It was an honor to go to class every day and sing with the choir members--and the wonderful songs we sang.I cherish those memories of being in choir. I listen to the music we recorded often.I feel the choir members felt a oneness when we would come togethter and sing.I do miss that and that is the main reason I liked school.

††††† †††† I canít wait to see everyone at our 35 year reunion.

Hey There:
I don't know if you all remember me or not, but I remember you! I was Suzi Reynolds and now am Suzi Bass. I received the news letter and checked out the website. Looks like you all had a blast. I was certain I would be the only classmate with completely gray hair, but guess I'm wrong! I wasn't able to attend this year, because we had previous plans for that weekend. Also kept meaning to send news about myself, but was having trouble being chipper! My only child David, died 22 months ago at the age of 20 and I'm still learning how to deal with that... My sweet husband Walter of 26 years remains steadfast and awesome and my work keeps me going...but still trying to find joy again. Find myself only sticking to the red letters in the Bible right now! Anyway, I appreciate all of you keeping the Class of 69's spirit alive and hopefully, I'll catch up with you all at the next reunion. I must say that one of the sweetest gifts of my life came to me on my first day of Kindergarten when Glenna Kay Betts Johnson and I became life time best friends. My best wishes and prayers go to all of you.
Suzi Bass, RHIT

Prunedale, CA 93907
I left Northwest Missouri State College for spring break in 1970, and for all intent and purposes, never returned. I worked construction, road crews, as a truck driver; bookstore clerk, and waiter. I attended the University of Kansas long enough to get a degree, and have been earning a living as an itinerant architect ever since. I've lived on both coasts, and some in the middle. I've been married more than once, and I have one daughter, I have finally found a home in the rolling hills of Monterey County, California, and some peace. I wish you all well.

Time has a way of leveling the Ďplaying field of life.í
Trophies tarnish and honors fade.
Fellow classmates grow old, and friends pass away.
So really, the important things in life are not the honors received by a few,
But the friendships and memories we collected along the way.
