Comments

I graduated from college in French and Humanities but I started a family even before graduation. It was an active household. The youngest is mentally handicapped. Having him in the family is a great experience for all of us.

School Story

I have been thinking a lot about people that I once knew. I didn't realize that we would suddenly be taken by the wind after graduation. I moved to Utah almost immediately afterward and didn't ever move back.

Places you have visited

I lived in Utah for most of my adult life except for four years in Denver. I visited South America and Europe and I am currently in the Philippines.

Your plans for the next 10 years

I have never been very good at planning, so thanks for asking. I would like to do more traveling and more writing. I do a lot of family history research so I will probably continue that and I would like to visit ancestral areas --Denmark, Sweden, and the UK.

Hobbies & interests

Tennis, writing, reading, gardening, house remodeling, children and grandchildren, of course. I like puzzling things out. I've gone through a Words with Friends phase, a Sudoku phase. I have a maladjusted little rescue dog, a Shiz tzu, named Skip.

If anyone wants to dig into their family history, I can help.

Words of wisdom for 2016 graduates of Carlmont High

I hope that you have all made it through the last 50 years and gathered wisdom along the way. I hope that I have learned to be nicer and more patient than I am naturally. I am grateful for the life I am living but am curious about the roads not travelled, the roads other people took.

I have learned the most from my handicapped son Alex. He teaches to to celebrate and appreciate the smallest accomplishments. My friend's daughter who was born the same year graduated from law school and works in a New York firm, while Alex has recently learned to ride in an Uber taxi by himself. It was a great day when he did.

Sally, I am sorry for the loss of your son. I hope that you had a good time at the reunion. I wasn't able to attend. Linda Ohran

Mike did you recognize everyone? I wish I could have been there. Do you have 7 children? If so, they should have given you a bottle of Champagne like I did at the 20th.
I have 6 children, five boys and one girl ranging from 28 to 46. Only 10 grandchildren so far and 1 great grand. I am step mom to 5 more. Pretty crazy by Carlmont standards. But I like em all. I remember you but I can't really think of a class we were in together. Did you go to Louis Barrett?

How is your sister doing? Any progress on her family history file? I missed the reunion too. I considered flying in from the Philippines. Nancy Eranosian assured me if was easy to do...but no.

Hi Linda,
I've been emailing you for months, but haven't been in touch with you or Maureen Mahoney since our Reunion. I presume you are reading all the posts.
You asked about a Facebook page. I don't know whether it is needed, because we are going to keep this website going. I also cc'd you on a general email.
When are you returning from the Philippines?
Be well, Hans

Thank you for sharing your life story. I remember you most from seventh grade. We sat in the same row in Captian Kohlas (sp?) class. Best wishes, Linda.

Hello Kitty
I am so glad you registered here. I have always wondered how you were doing. You look great. My memories of you go way back -- kindergarden with Mrs. Anderson? Best wishes, Linda
