We have a recent championship team member among our classmates.
A national championship at that... quite an accomplishment.
Congrats Louise, to you and your teammates.

Thanks Pearl, will also keep trying to locate Arlene.

Mollie, please thank Tremaine who's been extremely helpful in locating classmates.
I sent Mollie the links to the reunion photos and memories which she wrote that she
was now enjoying viewing and reading.

Thanks Roy, and thanks Doug for the ' Words of Wisdom'.

Big Mahalo again Tremaine for all the help.
Hopefully that will inspire others to do much the same.

Found Stanley to be the same Pearl, real nice friendly guy.
Yes you did miss a great KHS fundraiser dinner and the camaraderie.
Good to hear that you'll be taking care and treating yourself with a vacation.

We all offer our condolences to Bessie Shimabukuro Mukai-Kea along with yours, Gerri.

Take care all and stay well.
Will be away from the computer for a while but please do keep sending the emails.

Aloha Hal.
Thank you so much for this connection.
If possible, can you re-send email to : mollie***@***.com.

Here is the rest of my info:

Please let me know about any future upcoming class reunions.
Gosh, I can't believe that it has been 57 years ago since I last saw my class mates.
It would be so nice to get to see all of them again.
If there is a photo page that you might have access to of the '60 grads I would love to see them.
I tried many years ago to find classmates but as you might know, not all of us can deal with
the wonders of a computer.
I have gotten a lot better now but not quite a guru. LOL
Thank you so much for contacting me.

Went to visit Doug this morning.
He was in good spirits.
We didn't talk too long.
He mentioned that Harold visited him.
Hope more of our classmates will visit him.

Sorry to hear of Stanley Kea's passing.
My condolences to Bessie and their family.
Whenever they went to the reunions, he was always very friendly.

Sorry I missed the KHS alumni reunion.
Heard the food and entertainment was great.
Had guests from Taiwan for 2 weeks with shopping, touring Pearl Harbor, Sealife Park,
luau at the aquarium, garlic shrimp in Haleiwa etc.
They just left, now I have to have a real vacation of my own.
Taking my mom, who is 94 years young today to visit her 89 year old sister in Reno.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter.
May you all find that golden egg.
