Jim, Cindy and I visited Gail and Vince Mercurio and their pretty home outside of Ashville North Carolina. We had a wonderful afternoon, a nice lunch and caught up on a lot of conversation. Everybody is fine and looking good
Take care, Mike

A recent gathering of ’64 Warriors took place in Las Vegas.
Jim Lundie was in town for a Military Unit gathering so John Andrews rescheduled a business meeting and they met with Jim and Suz Armstrong for a wild evening.


John and Lisa Andrews visited Omaha on a business trip so met with Jim & Peg Maloney for dinner in the Old Market.

(We also looked at a few potential reunion hotels)

     Just talked to Tom Barr who told me Rob Roberts had called him to say that Marty had died over the weekend.  She apparently had Alzheimer’s.  She lived in Eugene, Oregon and had suffered with this for quite a while.  Don’t have any specifics but thought I’d pass on what I do know.

Hi Wiesbaden Warriors,

          I feel like I have been dreaming! What an amazing time! I loved seeing all of you and meeting your spouses and am so grateful for such a warm reception! I was so busy in high school and did not have the chance to socialize with all of you as much as I would have liked, so I feel very blessed that you remember me! You can be sure that I will be calling others, who have not yet been to a Reunion, to let them know that this is the most special get-together they could ever attend! 

          I love the idea of bios from all of you because you have all lead such interesting lives and I want to know more! Please also update your contact information, including your mailing address, so that I can be in touch with each one of you individually. 

          Thank you to the Reunion Planning and Underwriting Committee for such a magnificent and memorable time! … and, again, to Christine Holiday for finding me! You are all welcome to come visit me anytime because I hope to see you sooner rather than later. 

Lots of love to each and everyone of you! 

Su-z (Venhorst) Danielson

       I am amazed each time we gather at the camaraderie, love and generosity shown by the attendees and those who organize and, to a large part fund, the activities. This year I must thank Don, Catherine, Connie and Rich. And Shelly who even in her absence offered up her lovely home for that delicious Italian meal. Diana and I had a wonderful time, wishing only there was even more time to spend with even more classmates. 
          I know there were several Warriors who were unable to make it to this reunion. I hope they can make the next. And it is so refreshing to see new faces after all these years. Thank you Kay and Su-z for coming back to us. 

   And Jim Maloney….you ARE the man!

 Hi Kids. Sorry I missed the big fling! Excuse#1:  had to wear Mr. Mom hat while Mrs. Mom worked a big CFF fundraiser over in Portland.  #2 had to call in the SeaBees (Really: Command Master Chief Rick Cousins (Ret) to help run 35’ of stainless steel flue liner down my masonry chimney to bring it up to code for the new furnace inspection on the Monday, thus ending several weeks of heat by modified Rumford fireplace. ( its a bad time of year to be jumping on at the end of the new furnace install line here in NH. I bet y’all had a ball reunionizing, and I am suitably jealous!

*** Paul and I received a phone call from Tidwell Hospice around 4 a.m. this morning saying my sister, Shannon, has died….  
… Paul and I, and Shannon, thank you for all of your prayers for us and all of the help and love you have shown through this long and difficult walk…

… Thank you and all of her friends from Wiesbaden for your love and kind words for my sister.  You were all a wonderful and fun life experience for her in Germany and carried in her fondest of memories throughout all of the years after.  
 Our best to all of you and yours,    Sara & Paul Johnson

I know we all have great and fond memories of Shannon and wish we had another chance to share those memories with her… and each other. Lets make use of the time we have…   JimM

I just returned from a short trip to Las Vegas for a World Airways reunion. While there I met up with John (Ferguson) Acker one day and later had a nice lunch visit with Jim & Suzan Armstrong. Although they won’t be joining us in November, they wish everyone well and hope to make the next reunion.          All The Best, Jim Maloney
