Sad News Yesterday

I am still reeling from the e-mail I received yesterday. I reconnected with a grade school friend through Classmates.com a few years ago. She moved to Indiana during High School and I had lost touch with her until I saw her name on classmates. We started e-mailing and catching up on the last 30 plus years. She had been married for 20 years and had no children, they had a vacation home in Florida that they rented out when not in use by them. She had struggled with her weight(who hasn't) and also with depression. She wanted to attend the 30 year class reunion in 06, but just couldn't swing it. We even talked on the phone a couple times trying to figure out a way to meet somewhere and catch up on old times. I knew her father had passed away last year and her precious 14 year old dog. I continued to send her pictures and forward e-mails even though I hadn't heard back from her in a few months.
Yesterday I received a reply from something I had forwarded to her over the weekend, only it was her husband with the difficult task of telling me that on Sunday he came home to find that Julia had taken her own life.........
Whatever demons haunted her became to much for her to manage.
I will always remember her beautiful youthful smile, as I never saw a picture of her as an adult.

Robin's Prom Night





Robin told me yesterday that he decided to go to the Prom, that is tonight........
No he didn't have a date so no need for a tux or corsage.....
Would just be meeting a bunch of friends for dinner then to the Country Club for the dance.....
OK that's easy.

I spent from 11:30-5:30 helping at the concession stand at the High School Tennis Tournament, even though Robin was not playing....

Will be helping out again tomorrow.

"Class of 1976" Ukiah High



This is my classmate Jeff Burrell, Standout Football and Baseball star, Successful Ukiah High Teacher and girls basketball coach...
He was arrested in Ukiah on Wednesday for having a commercial marijuana growing operation in a rented storage unit, was in deep financial trouble, guess he thought this was the way out....

Way to ruin your life Mr. Burrell !!!
