"Wild Thang" - 24
10/26/04     Ruth Mangrum Donley  (1979)      rmdonley@kimbanet.com
Hello, Everybody!
Gosh, where to begin? Words could never explain how good this class reunion was for me. Many thanks to all my fellow planning committee members, especially Lisa, who drew me in and kept encouraging me to come to the meetings. You'll never know what it meant to me - thank you, so very much.

Ramie and Joy, you are RIGHT!! We need to get together as often as possible. Life is short and fun times like these come too seldom. It was wonderful seeing everyone.

A big thanks to everyone from Saturday night for making me feel at ease. Attending this reunion helped me realize that I'm not too terrible of a person just by myself. That being single is not as lonely or bad as I thought. And ... life does go on even after a lifetime of marriage ends.

Mary Ann, what can I say - you're a nut. A sweet nut, but a nut. I had never heard "Wild Thing" before Saturday night. At least not that version. When we were talking about "Wild Thing" I thought you meant the old version.

Tommy, thank you for everything. You picked on me in HS and you've not changed one bit and I love you for it. (even if I didn't get invited to your place) JK JK JK

Gwen, thank you for your inspiration. I think I can safely say: "We ALL Love You!!" Thanks to your sister, also. I hope we see both of you again very soon.

Someone voiced some concern about Lisa moving and who would take up her mission. Well, I'm not saying I'd be the one, but...... WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE REUNIONS.
So to the ones who didn't come this time - get ready NOW for the next one!!!!!!!!!!!

Proud to be a part of MHS '79.
