In Memoriam

When we graduated in 1988...

Life lay before us,
There was so much to do.
The world was ours to conquer and explore
When we left Santa Fe High School’s door.
There were jobs to be found
Further education to be had,
And someday becoming Moms and Dads.
Some chose to travel many miles away
For others, Santa Fe was the place to stay.
Some may have accomplished
Most of the things they had planned
And think life has been just grand.
While in other lives
Many changes had to be made,
We had to make lots of adjustments
Along life’s way.
But no matter what
As we connect through our website,
I’m sure we’re glad
We’ve made it this far.
As we renew old acquaintances
And talk about the things we used to do,
We will learn we are short a few.
Some have departed this life along the way
And are absent from our class member list today.
Now as their names are in the Memory section
Some will remember things
That they did or said.
Faces will become vivid once more
So let us live our lives
Mindful of the things we say and do,
For the next one missing
Might be me or you.
When we lose a classmate, it is another reminder of the importance of staying in touch with loved ones and friends even if it's a brief e-mail/text/posting on our our website or a phone call saying hello because we just never know when we will not have that opportunity to again.
