Comments:

I still think fondly about all the wonderful people in our class at Highland, many of whom attended UNM with me as well. After a 7 year "starter marriage", Linda Bobier and I have been married for 28 years. Neither of us have ever had kids which I think meant I got to be the kid in our family and keep having fun my whole life. We've had several dogs through the years who have been a very important part of our lives. I lived in Albuquerque most of my life and still have my closest friends there. In addition to a career in financial and high tech management, I founded and owned the Soup'r Salad restaurant in downtown Albq for 4 years in the early '80s. In the late '80s, I was a NM State Representative for two terms. As I look back on my career (lots of time for reflection now), being a legislator was the most challenging and gratifying job I've had. In 2001, I took a position managing a medical research institute in the Phoenix area. I retired 3 years ago from Banner Health, a 24 hospital healthcare system where I was CEO of the medical research operations of 2 research institutes, a cancer center joint venture with MD Anderson, and the surgical research in the hospitals. Hard to believe for someone who would faint in Highland's health class whenever breast surgery or the effects of STD's were described in graphic detail. Linda and I live in Scottsdale and take as many trips to exotic lands as we can.

Kevin -
I like your comment about Cissy King. I knew her because a good friend of mine, Greg With, dated her. Cissy was always so nice to everyone. (Cissy, I'm ssure you are just as nice and pretty today!) In the 70's,I did watch the Lawrence Welk Show just to see her. As I recall, another pair were the featured dancers but then that woman left and Cissy replaced her in the featured pair. One of our class stars!

Happy Birthday Gene! You were always such a gentleman and great friend in high school; it's no wonder you became a military leader. Thanks for your friendship in high school and your military service.

Happy belated birthday Suzie! Didn't I bump into you in New York many years ago when you were a flight attendant and I was on a weekend pass from army basic training?
