Wow I can’t believe it’s been 50 years! Seems like yesterday! So happy I can still remember those fun and carefree days of skipping lunch and driving to the original In’N’Out on Cubbon & Main, sneaking a smoke in the girl’s bathroom and waiting for Mr. Rollo Beck to round us all up from our cars before school started. So many fond memories of good friends and fun times.
I married my high school sweetheart right after graduation on July 3, 1965.
We had two boys Joel and Jason. We were married nearly 40 years until Duane lost his battle with cancer in April of 2004. I worked for the Orange Unified School District and retired in 1989 to stay home and spoil the first grandson, who is now 25 years old and in the Navy, stationed at Coronado San Diego, not a bad place to be!
One more grandson and two lovely granddaughters followed.
Duane and I stayed in the neighborhood purchasing a home in Park Santiago on Poinsettia Street. Our neighbors included many SAINTS the likes of Dennis Hill, David Scott and Kathy Mobley DeFord were just a few.
I am looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new memories see you all soon!
