Your life history (after Highland, Reader's Digest condensed version):

Attended the "U" until hired by Trans World Airlines. Moved to New York and flew for 2 years. Met and married a Texan, moved to Houston, and resumed my flight attendant career with Continental Airlines. Had two children, divorced, and moved to Denver. Worked in various positions at Continental, including, inflight supervisor, training instructor, and flight attendant recruiter. Remarried in 1989, returned to flying as an International Service Manger, commuted to Newark, flew international, and saw the world. (still seeing the world) Two grandsons, one dog, and four cats. Active in Democratic politics, animal rights causes and Marriage Equality. Had the honor of meeting Senator Robert F. Kennedy in Washington D.C., and worked as a volunteer in his New York senate office. Precinct chairwoman, McGovern presidential campaign in Houston, 1972. Worked as Senator Ted Kennedy's flight attendant during 1980 campaign, and a Hillary Clinton delegate to Colorado State Convention in May 2008. Recently retired from my 40 year career with the airline. Not only was being a flight attendant my "dream" job, traveling the world was a great education. Seeing the diversity of cultures and people, was an experience I will always cherish.

We recently reconnected through phone calls and although I knew he had health issues, I was so shocked to learn he had passed away. Rest in peace Barry. I wish we could have gotten together for a nice visit.

I live in Lone Tree, which sometimes comes up as LIttleton when you Goggle my address. I love Colorado. Moved here from Texas in 1982, and now thinking about full retirement in St George Really not sure about returning to Utah, but the scenery is breathtaking there!

Cheri, did we know each other at Highland? You posted on Trish Kelsey's page and mentioned you hoped to see both her and Ann at the reunion. Ann Kros and Trish were my best friends at Highland. Probably two of the few people I knew and remember. I only went to Highland my senior year. If they were your friends also, we had to know each other.

Throughout my career I've had many famous and interesting people on my flights, but my trip from Beijing to Newark with Dan Rather was one of the most memorable. While everyone else slept, we talked for 3 hours and solved the world's problems!! A flight I wouldn't trade for anything.
