This past August our high school class had a reunion back home in Iowa. The anticipation for many of us went on for weeks as we e-mailed each other back and forth about how excited we were to be back together again, if only for a weekend. You see, out of my graduation class of 18 members, 15 of us started school in Kindergarten and stayed together though graduation. Not only were these classmates, they were and still are extended family.
The memories some of us have held onto these past years were precious, ridiculous and down right hilarious. I don't think I have laughed so much in many years and when it was over, there were tears of hope that we can get back together again. You see, we have already lost two dear friends. They died much too young and they are missed. We also missed the two members of the class unable to attend this reunion.
So my dear classmates, my extended family, I say thank you for a wonderful weekend. May the time go quickly until we can get together again.
