Comments:

Mike Hassell and I started dating when we were in the band at Barwise Junior High. He was in 9th and I was in 8th. We dated all through high school (and dated other people too), but after his Senior year we got married. We were truly high school sweethearts. We were married for about 19 years and then divorced. Later we each married others. Now after being divorced for 30 years we are back together and getting married this year. It is truly a fairytale with a happy ending. In addition to our two children mentioned above, we have 3 granddaughters, TWO great-grandsons. We are both retired and loving every minute of it!!
SINCE I WROTE THIS WE HAD TWIN GREAT GRANDSONS IN AUGUST 2013 & THAT NOW MEANS FOUR!!! SINCE WE ARE RETIRED WE TRAVEL & HAVE A VILLA IN ITALY, COME VISIT US!!!!
We made it legal and got married on Nov. 28, 2014 after being divorced for 34 years!

I met Kay in band at Barwise.  We were majorettes and her mother made our uniforms out of green velveeten so we would have something to wear (besides jeans and white shirt)  since it was going to take awhile for the new uniforms to be delivered.  She was always so kind and she got that from her sweet parents.  They raised chinchillas in cages in their back yard and when I would go to her house I was allowed to feed them.  She was a great person, but we lost contact after graduation.  Wishing you light and peace.
