Both my wife, Becky Sue, and I have been ill for quite a while and have been out of "circulation". We are some better but as you all know at our age recovery is not very rapid to say the least. Our working group here in the Tulsa area has dwendled due to deaths and illness but some wonderful ladies of our Class have stepped in to lead for the 60th Reunion. Our former Chairperson, Jo Ann (Perry) Huffman and her husband are very ill and are not able to do much of anything. Jean (Redden) Paul is our Chairperson now and is heading up the Reunion.
My wife and I, were able to attend the last luncheon at Luby's on 71st St. It was good to see everyone again after a long absence and believe it or not they were glad to see ME!!
Those present were: Bob Hensley, Beverly Gilbert, Patty Borofsky, Riley and Becky Sue Foyil, Virgie (Bittle) Tucker, Jerry and Donna Carman, Roger and Laura Swift, Jeannie (Redden) Paul, and Virginia Burlingame.
