I’d give anything(almost) to be in Washington right now...all my flowers are blooming and it’s so much Cooler than our hundred degrees in Arizona! Also I believe you have less Coronvirus cases than hot ol Arizona. I remember you from Clarendon days...you were quite the athlete! Hope all is well with you and yours. West is Best! Penny (Axson)
Mickey was my best friend from 1st grade at Westwood Elementary through 8th grade. We lost touch but I have tried to find her for a long time. She had the nicest family...I used to visit her home after school. It saddens me that she is gone...but I am so happy to know she is with our Saviour. Rest peacefully my dear friend.
Hope you had a great birthday, Mark. Enjoy a good year ahead!! Mindy
Soo sorry I will miss Jordan’s gathering...eat an enchilada for me. I am enjoying the view of Tucson foothills from my 7th story penthouse window of Banner Main as I just got 2 stints in my heart ?? I Feel like Felice At our 50th reunion...These hospitals get you in and won’t let you out. Hi to everyone gathering at Jordan’s. Boohoo! Til we meet again Best Penny
I wish I had known Patricia Leonardo! She looks so familiar...like we passed in the halls at West High. She seems like everyone’s friend. She will be missed. My condolences to her family and friends. Thankyou for sharing her story. It makes one want to be better. Best, Penny
Happy Birthday Brode. We never had that summer lunch. Hopefully soon. Lots of great restaurants in Tucson!! Have a happy, healthy, wonderful year ahead.
I am just now returning from a Broadway marathon wanted to let you know that you were right...”Come From Away “ was by far my favorite! I thought it was probably due to my Canadian roots but at the end of the play the entire audience were on their feet clapping and doing a jig to the fun Newfoundland band. It was awesome ??
Thanks for the thumbs up ?? I was there with four College friends and each chose their own favorite production...so we saw Hamilton, Chicago, Lion King and Frozen...technology was so great! I am in Denver on my way home ?? to Spokane Valley Wa. I’ll return to Arizona October 30 when the weather gets cold. Hope all is well with you and yours...’til the next West High reunion. Best, Penny
I seem to be a week early with this, but happy birthday to come next week! We're a couple weeks apart. So fun to have visited at the last reunion. Hoping all is well. Aloha, Ken
Thanks to all who worked on this last mini-reunion to be such a success and appreciation to those that were in attendance...we were few but mighty “great”! Who knew that Ben Schaub was human lol...and Lee Giurlanda, I’m glad we look so good to you. You're a man who sees with his heart! I echo Robert Fortson’s comments that it was the people of West High that made it great! Thanks to our fearless leaders...Carl, don’t be thinking of passing the baton...you’ve got a lifetime calling there. Keep up the good work. It’s appreciated. Maybe you can get Mark to make the job “pay off.” John Lumm started the “true confessions.” Who knew? It was so great seeing (not so clearly without my glasses) and visiting with many classmates. Thank you for condolences expressed in my behalf of my recent loss...I felt the love and sincere concern. Until we meet again and I hope it won’t be too long before the next reunion. Best to all, Penny
Eddy Just thinking about when I last saw you you were rushing home to your wife who had fallen and I’m wondering how she is doing I hope everything was OK Sounded kind of scary! Hope all is well. Great to see you at the reunion. Best, Penny
I remember the shock and surprise of his unexpected death. How sad it was to see his empty chair in the clossroom, and the sorrow of knowing that the family he loved so deeply was grieving him with so much pain. It reminded me then how fleeting our time on earth is. he used his time in good ways, expressing love and kindness all around
Can’t keep this Canadian from Jordan’s Mexican food no way no how... Count me in! I am registered both days for visiting with former classmates and friends however, I don’t see my name on the list please know I’ll be there. Best, Penny
