I wish I could have been able to attend the 40th Class Reunion and The Homecoming of the Century. It would have been great to see all of you. Wow, 40 years went in a hurry! Have a great time!

After high school graduation in 1969, I attended The University of Texas at Austin where I graduated with a B.A. Degree in Biology in 1973. After college graduation, I worked in Austin and Houston. After returning to Austin, I married Mike Colchin in 1976 and started a family -- a son and a daughter. Mike was a hydrogeologist hired by Shell Oil Co. in 1978 when they were located in Denver, CO. We lived in Lakewood, CO from 1978 to 1984, when we moved to Evergreen, CO, where I still live today. I divorced in 1990 and later returned to school to obtain my paralegal certificate in 1994. I worked as a paralegal until earlier this year when I was diagnosed with a pituitary disorder. I have a wonderful "significant other" in my life who is very supportive. He has helped through a house fire in 2005 and health issues. Life is beautiful in Colorado!

School Story:

I enjoyed being the piccolo player in the band. I actually still play it and the flute on occasion. A "funny" high school memory is that I was the only female in my physics class, demonstrating my feminist side (even though I've always been a strong conservative!).

I'm very sorry for your loss, Marie. I am deeply saddened by the news. Don was a special, gifted person who was full of life and well liked and admired by many. I pray you will receive peace and comfort and that you take good care of yourself during this difficult time. May God bless you and your family.

Happy Birthday, Merle! I've was having trouble with my computer yesterday, and now, the posting of my comment is not working correctly. How frustrating! Anyway, I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday! I hope I can meet with you whenever I go to Texas and also meet your animals. I really admire your helping those sweet little creatures!

I love the photo! I live in Evergreen, CO. We had some of the most beautiful colors this fall that I have seen since I have lived in CO for 36 years! While it is gorgeous near me, I always head further west to Kenosha Pass and into Breckenridge to observe the colorful aspens. Silverton is another magical area! The attached photo is from Kenosha Pass. Have a great time at the reunion tomorrow! I wish I could be there.

Happy Birthday, Bill! I noticed that you will be attending the reunion. I don't know if I will be able to attend, but I will try. It would be great to see you and Pam, and everyone! How are things in Fairfax, VA! We've had a cool and wet summer here in Evergreen, CO. I hope your birthday was very special.

Happy Birthday, Philip!

I noticed that you will be attending the reunion. I wish I could commit to attending it. It would be wonderful to see you and so many others. Aren't we all so blessed to have a class web site and classmates who care enough to organize class reunions! ~~~~~ Chris
