liked to dance with Janice at lunch time. She always forgave me when I stepped
on her feet. I also remember a time when Danny Morse confessed a serious lust
for Janice. I don’t know what ever became of that…

noted in my memories of Marlene Beavers and a party at her house, when someone
asked what happened to Irene Havens (her mother may have shown up to take her
home?) and we began an urgent search.
Irene had left with Dave Fink and they been gone for quite a while. Dave had
the '66 class reunion in 2001, that was the last I remember of Irene but I do
remember seeing Dave Fink at least one more time after that.
lots of emails and meeting her again at a class reunion, I think I know more now
about Irene Havens than I ever knew about her in school.

Don't forget all the fun we had
Together. How about the time
we.... went to the library. Try to be
good & when you get old & dream
of days that used to be don't forget
dear ol' Meridian! Have fun in Lansing
this summer & don't do anything I
wouldn't! Of course, I'll have to admit
you'll have to have a little fun but if
you can't behave, be careful.
Best of luck in everything you do,
(you might need some extra luck!)
God Bless ya!
Meridian, I think that Joyce and I may have had a class together and got stuck
with some project that required library research. Ruth Bailey could have been involved in the same project and offered to
drive 3 of us to the Dow Library. I don't remember who was riding shotgun with
Ruth but Joyce and I sat in back. Anyway,
in an effort to mix a little business (school) with pleasure on the way to the
library, Joyce and I started making out in the back seat. As I sometimes did, I
got a little carried away and when I kissed her a little too long and a little
too hard, she ended it by pushing me away coughing and gasping for breath. After
she got her breath back she started laughing. I must have acted a little
embarrassed cause when she stopped laughing she told me that she had a cold and
just couldn't breath through her nose while we were kissin'. At that point, we'd
attracted too much attention from the front seat so we quit neckin'. I don't
remember if I learned much or we got too much done on our school project but I
did have a lot of fun that night. I
sure did learn how to take a girl's breath away, though!
didn't know Ann very well but boy, did I like this yearbook entry ;-))
To one of the sharpest and
sweetest guys I know.

lived about 3 miles from me in Mills Township and was a regular summer playmate
while we were growing up. His parents were pretty religious and I went to summer
bible school with them a few times.
Lett’s were a big family and I grew up with Bob’s brother Jim, who acted a
little crazy sometimes. I always thought of Bob as the younger brother who
inherited all of the marbles that Jim should have had.
