One of the gifts of getting older is the recognition that every day is a gift and blessing and you should begin the day with a grateful heart.

What a wonderful time; to look back in your memories and see all the fantastic people who have crossed your path. The people in your youth who had faith in you and helped guide your journey. The friends from long ago that still when you think of them makes your heart happy. The things you achieved; but in your youth seemed out of reach and never to be. Looking back and seeing that you were loved and that God had been with you the entire journey even when you thought he wasn't!

Much love to all; Peace and most of all thank you! Thank you for crossing my path.

God's Blessings to all!


Now back in Florida. OCTOBER 2010

Although I moved back to the Texas area from Florida in 2007 for "a job". My wife and I still kept our home in Florida, it was a great two years but it is great to be home. I am greatful that I spent the last 2 years in Texas. I had the opportunity to renew loving relationships with family that I had not had in almost 40 years because of moving around the county. For many of my remaining family members, this period is near the end of their earthly life, and what a blessing it has been to become close and experience their love and memories.

As our children live in the Atlanta area we will be closer now that we live in Florida and will still focus over the next several years to find our place in the north Georgia mountains.

I married in 1970 to a girl that I met on a blind date in the Hartford Conn. train station in 1969. She worked for National Airlines in NYC. We have moved all over the southern part of the US. This was our 3rd time in the Houston, Texas area.

In 2004, I was through Roswell with my mother and her brother. She had been ill and I took them on a road trip to see her sister. She passed later that year. That was the only time I had been back in almost 40 years.

Seeing the pictures of the 1964 reunion brought back lots of memories. What a joy it must have been. I wish I were closer, I might drop in to the 1965 and catch up with old friends.

Although I missed the 1964 reunion, the 50th will be on my list.

Best to all and God bless.

School Story:

Not really a school story; but looking at the pictures was a hoot! Either in late 2007 or early 2008, I was at a meeting in Austin and was chatting with those attending. One "older gentleman" and I were discussing that we were both raised in NM, I said I was raised in Roswell and he said likewise, I told him that I graduated in 1964 and he said likewise. It was Bill Tarro....needless to say..I think both of us were surprised.

Years ago in Houston, I worked for the same company as Mike Waller (1964). I got on the elevator one day to head to lunch and there he was..what a shock for us both. He was a computer guy and I ran benefits for the same oil company. He and I got together from time to time and I believe he still lives in the Houston area. Merle Freyer(1964) was I believe a sister-in-law to Waller and lived in Houston as well. I believe she was a school teacher.

Happy Birthday, Darrell! Hope you are doing well in Port Charlotte and safe after Maria. There can be no better thing than to thank God for his providence and protection during such a terrible storm. Not over yet I know you will pray for those who will more than likely be affected by Nate which hit Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama and Costa Rica and the Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia and Alabama coastlines. God bless you. KLUJICS! Psalm 13:5, 6. Respectfully, Paul Viera, RHS 65 Classmate

Happy Birthday Darrell! Hope you and Susan are okay there in Port Charlotte and not in any problems because of the strong rains that have so recently hit the area. Hope you and your loved ones have a great celebration for your birthday. Insist on it!. Matthew 22:37,38.
KLUJICS. Respectfully, Paul Viera, RHS 65 Classmate. Shine, brother!

Happy Birthday, Darrell! Don't know how I missed it. I usually pretty good at passing on the praise. Anyway, I hope you and Susan had a great day of celebration on the 13th of October, 523 years and 1 day after Columbus messed up the whole world (as some would have it) when he landed at Hispanola, 10/12/1492! Hope to see you 2015 anyhow!
