See you all at the reunion in June of 2015, and let's all have a great time, Mark.
going to be a great reunion. See y'all soon.
Looking forward to it!
Has it really been 5 years since the last reunion?! I have contacted Diana Hames and Rachel Frey, hope you guys are still coming. My husband Bill is coming with me. If there is a class of '72 gathering Friday night we are up for it. Just let us know, Deb
Debbie. We're are planning to meet at SAMs place across from Marla bay around 6 ish on Friday night.
Thanks for letting me know, Diana. We will be there! (And as a bonus we are staying close by there.) Deb
This is Urgent @ 9:28 PM on July 11th, 2015: Please Pray for our Dear Sweet Friend and Classmate Jaci Vogt, who is going through a most difficult time tonight. Please pray for her, her daughter Sara, and the rest of the Vogt, Mathis, and Stone Families. We love you all, Mark and Lani.
I said a prayer for all of you, Mark. I visited with Jaci for about 3 hours the day after the reunion. It was so good to see her. I showed her some of the photos of the reunion which I will be posting soon. BTW I also enjoyed talking with you and Lani. Also thanks for bringing your yearbooks and those posters on Saturday. They were great to see again, Deb
It is with great sadness that I must inform all of the Whittell High School Alumni, that our Classmate and Friend and Sister to many, Jaci Vogt, just passed over to the other side. Thank so many of You who took the time to write a little remembrance to Jaci this last week. I am sure she enjoyed them all. Please keep her and her daughter Sara in Your prayers, Mark. 7/15/2015 @ 11:25 Pacific Time.
Mark .... this is late, but please pass on my love and concern to Lani. My late sister, Christina Corum, was good friends with Lani, and with Jaci. The whole family lived in Marla Bay just down the road from us. It is very sad to lose someone so young.
I hope to see Lani at the Reunion in 2020.
Mark, I am so saddened to hear this. Jaci was a wonderful person. Love to you all, Debi Ensign Lara
Hi - Peter Gregory ('75) here - yes the shy introvert with few friends in school. I made it to the earlier reunion (1995?) but could not attend 2015 as I have a busy travel schedule. The truth is, every school has its black sheep and outcasts, and I was among them. So while I had some good friends in Jr. High and High School, there were some who were cruel; on the balance it was not a pleasant experience, I hope all of you had a nice time though. I have no bitterness or ill will towards anyone - what has passed has passed.
I've been living in Seattle for the past 25 yrs. My technology career began in 1977 at UNR and continues today in my role as an executive data security advisor for clients all over the western U.S. and Canada. I have written over 40 books on data security and emeging technology since 1999, and I teach a course at the U of Washington.
I was saddened to see all of the names of friends and acquaintances who have passed on before me. Rod Nafie was one of my best friends in school, and I had a crush on Jaci Vogt - she was the lead singer in our jazz band. Those were good times. When we hear of others' passing, it gives us an opportunity to reflect on our own lives. Before we go it's important to mend fences and get right with God. Don't let your passing, or the passing of anyone close to you, result in things unsaid. We don't know the day or the hour of our own passing, so don't put off these important things.
Be well everyone. Have a safe New Year and a great 2017 for whatever is in store for you.
Peter Gregory, class of '75
Thanks for taking the time to post your message on the website. I'm sure that you're not the only one who felt that way. I had many times in school that I felt the same way. I hope I wasn't one of the people who made you feel that way. If I ever did I sincerely apologize. Kids are very often immature and cruel, especially to people who are different. I know because being one of only 2 Japanese kids, I was different.
Anyway, the past is past and I don't live in the past. Sadly, I've seen people who couldn't get over their pain from the past and it left them a very bitter, angry person. That's no way to live.
It's great advice to everyone to mend fences while you can and don't let things go unsaid. We plan to have another reunion June, 2020. I'm sure you will have friends there that would like to see you. Me, for one. I remember you well since you lived right down the street from me. I'll be looking forward to seeing you.
I'm looking for Jan Valentine or any leads to her from the class of 1977
