Memories
Like the Corners of my mind
Misty watered clored memories
of the Way We Were!

Scattered Pictures
of the smiles we left behind
Smiles We gave to one Another
For the Way We Were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell Me, Would We? Could We?

Memories
May be beautiful and yet
What is too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget.

So its the laughter
we will remember 
whenever we remember
The Way We Were
The Way We Were!!!!!!!!  

Stay tuned for memories and words!  Coming soon!

2014 Duck Football Season!  What another great Duck Football Season!  Once
again, it was a fantastic time to see old friends and Bendites each football game.
Of course a few of us got the red carpet treatment, courtesy, of Chris and Debbie
Wetle!  Can't thank them enough for hosting the tail gate party each game, and also
for the "Wetle Presidential Suite" at their home.  They are simply awesome, and will love and cherish them both for life!  It is very special to have childhood friends, and your best
friends for a lifetime.  

It was particularly wonderful this Duck season when Steve McClain joined us at 
a Duck game, and Marcia Grote came to town the same weekend!  What a fabulous
weekend of memories that was.  Eugene and Portland was rocking with Bendites.

We wish our beloved Duck many blessings for the Rose Bowl!  We are playing for
the National Title soon!

Blessings to all in 2015!  
PS:  Nice to send some good news for a change!

I received a very special Christmas Card in 2014.  It came from a classmate I have not
seen in 44 years, and it meant the world to me.

"Sending you a Christmas card reminds me of how you have crossed my path and
touched my life.  Warm Wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

Thank you so very much, it meant the world to me!

Wishing all my old classmates a Wonderful, Merry Christmas, and
many blessings in 2013!

It is the time of year, you really treasure the blessings of family and
friends, and a lifetime of memories.  I have enjoyed every single
Christmas Card because of the thought, time and care put into them.
In this day and age, it is electronic text messages, emails, generic facebook greetings, which usually includes "it is all about me!"

This week, it was wonderful to actually get a plate of home
baked cookies, receive photos of family & friends, have a meal with
just "good quality people", and most of all; being around people who
understand the meaning of the true "Christmas Sprit", and what a gift this special Christmas Holiday is all about.

Take a moment to open the door for someone, call someone you have been meaning to call forever-but life keeps getting in the way,
make a senior day, and drop by-remember you are a step away, but
above all else; just be the best you can be each day.  

Looking forward to a walk in the snow in Bend during the holidays, and remembering the "Way We Were!"

Blessings Always
Your Bearette Bud!
Mr. Magic Mom!
Mr. Magic Mom!
Our beloved Mr. Magic's Mom has received her Angel Wings!
Duane Zanon's mom passed away this last Wednesday, and her service will be
in Bend on April 12, 2013.  Please read the attached obituary for details.
 
I know Mr. Magic would love to see some of his old classmates, and I know
many would like to pay their respects to his beloved mom Barbara.
 
Barbara and Kevin Domby's folks were the only parents to make it to our
40th reunion, and darn did they all look great!  Mr. Magic must have done his magic
on his mom.  It was so great to have her join us, and I sure don't have half the
energy she had.
 
Our prayers and thoughts are with Duane Zanon and his family at this most difficult time.
 
Our blessings our with them.

40th Reunion Memories

Bearette Buz on the Reunion!

Simply spectacular is the only way I can describe our
40th Reunion! 

After the picnic yesterday, I spent the late afternoon
and early evening with Kevin Domby's parents, and they
shared some fun videos and films of Kevin.  It had been
put together by his children for his memorial.  We
laughed and cried, and had a great time, and they were
so thankful to be included in our festivities, and want to
thank everyone for taking the time to chat with them.
It was greatly appreciated.

I left there, and drove up to the high school, and had
a flood of wonderful memories.  I then went back to
the park, and walked around, where we had the picnic.
Then the flood of tears.  So much catching up to do, and
so little time to do it.  I then went over to the park by
the river, and simply thought of all the wonderful
moments at this reunion, and of all the wonderful memories
we all shared for so many years.

I was so incredilbly happy to see all of my dearest old
best friends, and all so many others who I have had
the opportunity to get to know better and reconnect
with over this last one and one half years.

I am so thankful for each and every person who attended
the reunion.  Everyone made it such a wonderful event,
and experience for us all. 

I got in last night, and was shocked to have about 50 emails
with people just denoting how much fun they had, yes,
even the ones who came kicking and screaming.  Every
single email said that they were so glad they came, they
had a super time, and were very greatful for all the
hard work the committee had put into the Reunion.

The decorations were great, the slide show was so fun,
and the DJ was super!  Only when he tried to slide in
a couple "songs" not from our era; did he get a little
Bear teasing.  I thought all those Bears out on the dance
floor were at there 10th reunion!  It was so fun!

My only regret is that I was not able to spend time with
each and every person that had come to the event.  I
thought between Friday, Saturday and Sunday; I would
make a dent, but I barely got hellos and hugs.  I think
we need a week vacation together!

I can't wait for everyone to get their photos posted on
the class site.  I've been getting emails asking when
people will start sending them in.  I admit, I wasn't a
good picture taker, but I know so many who were.

In closing I just want to say thank you to everyone for
making this such an incredible event.  I had an incredible
time, and the old memories mixed with the new ones;
is simply "Unforgettable In Every Way!"

A very special Bear Bud sent me a message last night
and said, "you can't meet new Old Friends", and I think
that says it all!

Again, thanks to everyone, from the bottom of my heart,
for a weekend I will forever cherish!

Love Forever and Always
Your Bearette Bud!
