I'll be speaking at the banquet on the 12th of Sept.  We're expecting 9 survivors and hopefully at least that many rescue crewmen. 

I'm soooo excited to see everyone again and doubly excited to meet a few for the first time!!!

Roy has a fabulous list of events planned and I'm grateful that he asked me to be part of this.  Thanks Roy and EJ (his sweet wife)!

WOW! What a fabulous reunion that was!!!! I don't know how Roy and Etta pulled it off but they really went above and beyond! They kept us entertained and overfed, that's for sure.

Many thanks to Jeremy, Natisha, and Steve Claypool for their help getting all of us out-of-towners to/from wherever we went. What a joy you guys are, even if you DO talk funny! (Jeremy told us to roll down our "winders" if the truck was too hot. Winders, which rhymes with cinders, is not a word I was familiar with. Neither was "bowlers". As in when Jeremy told us that his friend worked belowdecks, on the ship's bowlers. That accent is hilariously wonderful!)

I will post pictures in the photo section of this board.
