Roberto! Happy Birthday amigo! I trust you will have and continue to have a great birthday. I'm looking forward to seeing you in September at the reunion!!!
Hola, Bob, Feliz Cumpleaños! In seven days, Lord willing, you'll be celebrating your birthday. What a blessing these years have been and to be granted one more? Well, that's just icing on the cake of life, amigo. Life is so funny. Joy mixed with sadness is part of it. We rejoice with the rejoicing ones and weep with the mourning ones and in the end we stand amazed at the fact that it continues whether we accept it like it is or not. It's fast and slow, it fills our emptiness only to take back what we never really owned in the first place. The longer we live the more we cling to it. It's supposed to be that way. We don't control it. It controls us. There is Only One who can give life and I, for one, choose to give mine over to the ONE who reigns over Life. What a great day to be alive, Bob. That's why I have so much to be thankful for. For the means of this venue at this time just to have the privilege of wishing well and saying Happy Birthday to my fellow 65 graduates of RHS. What a joy! Enjoy those grandkids and your children. I hope to see you in September full of stories and stuff to share. A toast to you, amigo y hasta pronto. KLUJICS.
Respectfully, Paul Viera, RHS 65 Classmate
Very sorry to hear this! He had one heck of a smile. We were not close friends, but Jim had a way of making you feel like best friends, and it seemed like everybody was in that category. Heck of a guy. I would have loved to be closer.
High School was somewhat awkward, maybe particularly at RHS, because it was so big. Lots of people we went to school with, I wanted to get to know better,and in May '65, it was just asa if a big curtain came down on a several act play, and except for a few friends, a lot of people were in the wind. Lost friendships, and friends, lost opportunities to get to know people better, and then came the next 50 years, one by one......! My Oh My!
Reconnecting with a few over that 50 on lucky occasions. Jim was one of those really great people, and I have deep regret that we have lost him, like quite a few, without the chance to reconnect in September, or on another occasion. To his family and all of his friends, condolences, and best wishes. Surely Jim has his wings already!
Happy Birthday Sis! Hope all is well with You and Spence, and all the family. Next trip to Roswell, gotta ring you up. Enjoy it all. Hard to believe our folks met at St. Mary's when Pete and Walt were being discharged with you, and Mom and Dad were being admitted to have me, and it was 68 damn years ago. On top of that our families turned out to be close friends. Those old memories are vivid. I'll never forget that Easter Dinner.......when Bobby Ream was wanting to leave the table, because all of us had already finished and been excused, and your Dad asked him "What do you say?" He was looking for "Excuse me please?' Bobby was classic. Remember what he said? "Nothing, Mr. Haut, I didn't burp!"

My Granddaughter Scarlet is a newly recruited waistgunner in a B 17 at Falcon Field, 3 miles from my house. It is so cool to see it fly over my house twice a day taking riders up. Sentimental Journey and Maid In the Shade, the B 25 Mitchell are great and unusual places to take visitors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIHj0Af78xE

RJ great memories my friend. I am sure we will see that smile again. The world will miss having a great guy like you around,, but in the big ranch house in the sky, I am sure things are already a lot livier.
I only got to see you every few years after leaving Roswell, but NMMI was a great time, and I enjoyed ratting with you, and sharing that experience with you. My prayers to your family and friends, and I look forward to that big roundup in the sky. But not yet.....not yet. Vaya con dios Hermano! Mi familia penso que el mundo de su familia, y mi madre le encantaba dar anestésicos para el Dr. Sam . Creo que ella era su favorito en el quirófano. muchas bendiciones, Amigo! Hasta la vista!!!
Terry Newsom, congratulations on 47 years together and your big personal day. Keep smilin'. Chuck Rives, wow other than the snow on top, I'd know you anywhere.

Very sorry to hear about RJ. He was a good friend. Dr. Sam was one of my Mom's favorites at St. Mary's to give anesthetics for. Great family. RIP, Ron. My best to the family. Godspeed.
Happy Birthday! Very interesting to find out you are Higgy's Mom! Quite a girl. Tough times. But a very rousing Happy Birthday. Enjoy. See you at "50th".
