Anything else you want to share?: Wish I could be there for the reunion. As luck would have it, Uncle Sam owns me for that part of summer. Thanks to those saints who stuck up for me and supported me in HS….hopefully you know who you are (Ettinger, Cooper, Erickson, Estes, Fuhr, Murdoch and of course Yockey….just to name a few).
