And more updates...

Pat Bandy is working hard at UPS in Enid, all the while dealing with his daughters fight with cancer. Carson was chosen to take a Disney cruise as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. She was surprised by Mickey Mouse while on the cruise and got to take several photographs. Carson is doing great and with more prayers will continue to stay healthy.

Mitch Poore is in Overland Park, KS. He has lived there now going on five years, with the same company that he has worked for, for 10 years - Stein Mart Inc. Mitch was at the 10 and 20 yr. reunions and is planning to make it for the 25 yr. get together.

Steve Kerbo emailed from Huntington Beach, CA. He was about to enjoy the US Open of surfing. If you've seen my 4Runner about town with the surf board on top, you can thank Steve for sending it to good old Enid for me. Thanks Steve!

David Thomas and his wife Heather just made a trip to Enid to visit family. His kids schedule is so busy they will not be able to return for the reunion. They live in Midlothian, VA and have lived there since 2002. Their three children are, Ashleigh (14), Allison
(13), and Austin (11).

Alan Goodson let me know that he and his wife Linda (high school sweetheart) would not be able to make the reunion. Here's Alan and Eleanor.

Don Kirkley is in Enid and works with one of our classmates (Dale Hornberger) every day.

Don has been working at Vance Fire Dept. since we graduated, where he serves as a Crew Chief. He enjoys being involved with youth sports, having coached for several years. For the last 16 years or so, he has umpired Baseball and Softball on every level from little league thru Semi - Pro.

In 1985 Don married his wife Angie (1982 grad of Kremlin) and they have 3 children, Jeremy and his wife Miranda, with their Granddaughter Tabitha, Brittany who is a Junior at Enid High School, and a EHS Cheerleader, and Chris who is in eigth grade at Waller. Don actually bought his Dad's house from him when he retired, so he still lives in the same house in 7 pines that he lived in since 1976.

Don asks everyone to keep his oldest son Jeremy (2000 EHS grad) in their prayers, as he is an Airborne Combat Medic in the U.S. Army, he has done one year long tour in Mosul Iraq, and is set to deploy again in Nov. Don plans on attending the 25th reunion, with my wife Angie. Angie by the way works at the Cafeteria at EHS.

Jana Jackson became Jana Gardner as of 4-2-04 after marrying Rev. David Gardner. They live in Grandfield , OK.

Rhonda Galer (Anderson) updated her email. Randy and her will not be able to attend this reunion.

Ben Wanders is coming in from LA to attend the reunion.

Amy Joss (Lund) would like to send her regards to everyone. She won’t be able to be here this time, as her family came ‘stateside’ last year. Someone else will have to win the ‘Traveled the farthest’ trophy this time!

These are Amy's kids, Max (12) and Charlotte (14). They live near Edinburgh, Scotland, where they have been for 9 years. Amy's husband, Malcolm, is an Occupational Therapist and Amy is a Therapeutic Play Specialist with a children’s charity.

Amy sends her love and best wishes to all who make it to the reunion this year. If anyone is traveling to Scotland, give her a call and she’ll buy you a pint and catch a haggis for you!

Stayton PettyJohn is doing well as the CFO of a corporation in the Dallas area. Stayton and his family live in Grapevine. He and his wife Michele have two kids, Morgan, his daughter and his son Austin.

This is a recent photo of Stayton and I (your humble web guy) at Gilley's in Dallas last month. Stayton and I have been the best of friends since the glory days of 6th grade.

The End. That's about it for now folks. The reunion is just around the corner and it should be a great time. Send more updates if you have them. Take care and watch for reunion picks coming soon.
