Comments:

I have 4 lovely children and 3 beautiful grandchildren.
My two grandsons (17 & 20) live in B.C. and my granddaughter (16) lives in Oakland, California, with her mother (Juliet)--my first born. My granddaughter is graduating in 2019 from St. John's university in NYC and going on to law school for International law. I'm so proud of her !
My husband and I have a condo in Cathedral City, Calif., area and we travel extensively together. We've been to Europe, England, India and have explored the deserts in California, Nevada, Arizona (Route 66, etc) and the southwestern U.S. since my husband retired 2 years ago. Maui is our favorite tropical spot. For the past few years, I have become an avid snorkeler and have learned underwater photography with sea turtles being my main focus...pardon the pun! I continue my artwork painting portraits, animals, and have created a small blog/web site where I display some of my artwork.
I retired as a Program Officer after 30 years working with the provincial government of British Columbia, Canada. Before those years, I had a successful singing/song writing/music career in the mid 70'sand into the 80's and early 90's. I received a grant to record one of my own songs on a compilation CD with 7 other artists in the id 90s.
Life has been an amazing and unpredictable journey and has included, for me, such adventures as living in different countries, building a large log home, developing a 10 acre hobby farm in the B.C. interior, traveling, having children, grandchildren, building relationships with friends in different countries, volunteering in my own and neighboring communities, and having, for the most part, good health and sanity (or insanity, however one looks at it) thus far !!
I value each day as a gift and know I am blessed to be able to enjoy and share this wonderful world. I am fortunate to be a citizen of the U.S. and Canada and hold similar beliefs as John Lennon's "Imagine."
I love my life in retirement as in the other stages, but still haven't figured out now how I ever had time to work!
"Life (truly) is beautiful"...as the movie depicts...filled with love and tragedy, laughter and heartbreak and, of course, passion.

School Story:

1965-1967 Santa Rosa Junior College
1974-1976 Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada

Happy Birthday, Lane... I do hope during this time of worries and uncertainty that your day will be a special one for you and your family. Hope you are all well and out of the path of this raging virus. Also, hope to see you in September if our reunion goes ahead as planned... be safe and well...thinking of you. Or, maybe we'll see you and Gail up our way when this is over since we're not far apart... Our invitation is an open one! hugs, Diana

Sorry to hear of Steve's passing...it is sad for you, Dennes, sad for Steve's family and sad for all those who knew Steve. It is especially sad as Steve will be missed and, also because none of us knows definitely what happens after we leave this earth.  RIP, Steve, wherever you may be and whatever exists (if anything) for you and all of us someday.
