Comments:

I lost my wife of 27 years to cancer several years ago, I remarried in April 2007 to a young lady (also class of 1968 but over by Liberty, TX). I worked offshore Brasil for 5 years, then went back to sea in August 2015.

The 40th reunion was the best ever, where people were just happy to see each other and nothing else.

The small pictures of me as a 5-6 year old and Patsy (same age) is one my daughter Cortney made for our Wedding picture album. I love it.

Well

It's taken me a few days or so to respond about this.  Danny was my oldest friend, I believe we met when we were either 6 or 7 years old, in Clute.  He moved elsewhere in the Brazosport area and we got together at times.  Later in life, it was the occasional fishing get together or just a long phone call.  

We met up in Navy boot camp, he was probably a month ahead of me.  Later, we saw each other at home one time, I believe I had just returned from 'Nam.  He knew of my issues ('Nam) and wanted to know if I brought them home with me (no, absolutely NO!).  Being in situations (combat) you really need to make sure who you are with.  

For me, losing old friends is just as difficult as losing family.  You can chose your friends and those relationships are permanent.  Danny will always be in my thoughts.

Hello Buddy, I have gone over a number of towns in Oklahoma (on the web) trying to find out where you are, it was a rumor to me that you were there. Now you are here! I am glad you are still with us and hope you can make the 50th reunion!. Seeing you had joined us made my day (I am in Guam until the 1st of August). I retire when I leave this ship.

Clifford Ward has a birthday today.

She always had a smile and that alone could turn a dreary day into sunshine.

Well, I had hoped my shipping schedule had finally set me up to be home for the 50th, expected it to be this coming summer, but since its late October I will once again be at sea.
