Sad news to share. My dear husband, John C. Naegle passed away August 15, 2018 after a courageous fight with bladder cancer. He's buried at the veterans Cemetery in medical Lake Wa. All of our children attended his life celebration on August 22, 2018 except for Patricia who came from the Netherlands three weeks early. It was a beautiful service. He is at peace now and free from pain. I am glad I was able to fulfill his last wish to return to his beloved Northwest where skies are blue and there are trees. It is truly God's country. Thank you all for your care and concern and also the birthday wishes for me yesterday. Hope to see you in the new year. Best, Penny

Happy Birthday Brode !! Hope you have a wonderful day and a great year ahead. Lets get together when I am back in AZ after a very long time in Oregon enjoying smoke from California !!
Hey, Carolyn. Day late but only good thoughts and memories. Too many laughs to count and the daily drive to West, wow, good thing we were young and Phoenix was smaller. Have a wonderful year ahead and yes, some day I will get to Prescott and we will get all the West High Phoenix transplants together for a great time. I am back in Arizona in October ... perfect season Mindy

Happy belated birthday, John. Hope your next great year is full of love and laughter. I will celebrate with an Orange Julius. Mindy
Thank you for posting all your photos from the reunion. I was unable to attend as my niece's wedding was that weekend in California. And, thanks for putting the names with the faces. Many I was able to recognize, but your descriptions were invaluable.

Doing some cleaning of drawers and found some Great memorabilia...here's a poem that made the rounds in the 60s. Thought it might give you a chuckle and bring back memories… Ode to a freshman!
A freshman child is always so shy
She silently longs for the sophomore guy
But the sophomore boy's head is in a whirl admiringly stares at the junior girl
The junior girl in a dashing sedan boldly chases the senior man
But the senior man handsome and wild secretly loves the freshman child.!!!
How many of us wished that this was true?
Nowadays age doesn't matter one bit !
Hope all is well with the Thunderbirds after the reunion. Best, Penny
Happy Belated Birthday, Melissa. It was wonderful seeing you and Mark at the reunion and I hope you have a terrific year ahead. I need to get to Prescott !!!! Mindy

Praying everyone's new year is as great as mine...I had to have half of my thyroid removed and am so happy to report there was no cancer...also the night of the reunion my husband was released from the hospital with a report of cancer in his lung...I was devastated, we have only been married for 2 years, but he had 5 radiation treatments and the tumor shrunk to about half it's size. I am so thankful to God for that...all my friends just bound together in prayer and God has seen fit to be merciful...needless to say life goes on...Be blessed and know that all of you are in my prayers!
Connie we missed seeing you at Marilyn's celebration of life yesterday. How great for you to have a surprise visit from your daughter??????? It was wonderful to catch up news with Tom and I did invite you guys to come to Sierra Vista especially when the temperatures in Phoenix start to soar...we are at 5400 elevation so up to 20 degrees cooler....every little bit counts. Don't hesitate to bring Amy... it's not a hard drive and we have all the tours down....like Bisbee for a blast to the past in a '60s time warp. Love to see you and catch up in person. Yesterday was a beautiful sunshiney day with such a special tribute to such a special lady and her family. It was great to see others in attendance. Prayers and best thoughts with the Niver family and to you too. Please keep in touch. Best, Penny
So sorry,I am a biker even now and Mike was in my classes along with Steve Saunders,good people,God Bless.
