Comments:

I was engaged my senior year and married in 1971 when my fiancee returned from Viet Nam. We lived in New Jersey for 2 years while he went to school and then moved back to Irving until 1975. We then moved to Grapevine where we raised our family. We were married for 23 years and parted friends in 1993. After divorcing, I moved to Fort Worth. I have two grown daughters and 3 grandsons, 3 step granddaughters and 1 step grandson serving in the Navy. I worked for the hospital in downtown Fort Worth in the Executive offices then moved to Medical City Alliance for a year. I retired in 2018 but remain on a part time basis. I love to travel and do so as often as I can. I keep up with everyone by this site and our FB page.

I have remained friends with a lot of our classmates. The reunions have helped me stay connected. And I have been to all the past reunions because I have served on the committees.

School Story:

My fiancee left me his convertable when he got orders to go to Viet Nam. This was my senior year and I hauled anyone and everyone that wanted a ride all over town in that car. Right before he got home from his training (before he shipped out) I hit a parked car and really did some damage to his convertable. He was great about it.

I remember going over to Linda Reyes' house and her sisters tried to teach me to dance - I never got it.

After we moved to Grapevine, I learned that Vickie Eckhardt Mathews lived in my neighborhood and her boys went to school with my two girls and we served on the PTA Board together for years.

My girls also took dance lessons for years from none other than Terri Speer at The Dance Workshop.

High school was a blur - it went by so quickly - and now that I look back, I wish I had stopped and smelled the roses more.

We celebrated your life today, Saturday, October 30, 2023.  It was a beautiful tribute to you.  You leave a legacy of family.  Your beautiful daughter, Tia, 5 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.  Many of us shared stories about you and the silly, and crazy things we did together.  You were the anchor in your huge family and they grieve your passing and will in the days, weeks, months and years to come.  But we know you are flying high with angels at your side, soaring above us and smiling down.  Thank you, Tona for your friendship and for your positive outlook and influence on us all.  We will miss you at the next reunion and we will think of you with fond memories.
