I was so sorry to hear of Carol's passing. She was a good friend in high school but we lost track of each other afterwards. We had such good times in Drama class and after school and now four of my good friends from that part of my life are gone. RIP, Carol Vernon, Jerry Babcock, Marianne Hune and Del Pearson. We all had such fun together with Mrs. Varner. Good-by fellow Thespians! Fond memories that will last a lifetime. Love you all!

Hello again, old friend.  Kathy Mehl here...(Kathleen Hobbs now),

As I was saying the other day, I have fond memories of our outdoor  adventures when we were at Cedar Hills Grade  School...building forts in nearby woods, finding clay near bubbly springs, filching apples from apple orchards to feed to the horses that resided at the Collins estate...when the fields were still full of bachelor buttons, meadow larks, and the occasional pheasant, rising like a vision of earthy colors.Usually ours forays ended at Ernies Market near your house, then a dash across Walker Rd. to swing in the playground with our treats...sometimes as exotic as a jar of green olives stuffed with pimentos!  There was a hiatus in our friendship during Sunset days, but it was resurrected during our Portland State years.  As freshmen, you provided transportation for Lynnette and I.  Often we would stop at the Skyline Restaurant for french fries and a cherry coke.  Later that year, you were my getaway car when I moved downtown in the middle of the night. year, you, I, and three other students shared the second floor of an old Victorian on 6th St. near PSU.  Many "new" adventures this houses, folk singers, motorcycles, invites to "parties" on Greek freighters docked in spooky areas, films and readings...Graduation.  I moved to San Diego and we fell out of touch again.  I remember you as fiercely original and totally unafraid of life in all its twists and turns.

Happy Trails, dear friend.
