You are very adventurous and I admire that in you! My friend from the class of 1965 John Kincaid the QB on our football team just sold his RV but he traveled all around the United States seeing the country side. I have a first cousin in Tucson that I hope to visit her someday. She is 84 years old and not very mobile so we talk twice a month . It is great to be a Wildkit!!!
Keep your focus and positive spirit!
God bless you and your family.

It is great that you are a great participant on our website. Fred Brostoff shared with me the other day we have approximately 750 remaining classmates with about 450 that participates on our website. I have just looked at the great pictures and other pages of this website. Thanks for sharing Lincoln you are helping to lift up your fellow classmates. You have so much to share because of your knowledge and background. As a Medical Doctor and Business man you are a great example of the quality people ,we have as classmates in the 1964 class. Thank you for your reaching out to other classmates from our 1964 class like Doctor Roger Ward. I have asked Roger to participate in our website. We will have to wait and see.

Steve Cohlmeyer was a very accomplished classmate. In high school Steve and I would speak and had mutual respect for each other. He was also on the basketball team. He was a teammate!  It saddens me to lose another classmate at this time ; but sadly, we all come here to go.I went through our 1964 year book "The Key" and saw many of our great classmates and teammates , we have lost. I hope more classmates can use this wonderful website to share insights and gain insights , make deposits, grow, mourn and most importantly share our collective wisdom and knowledge. Make This World A Better Place for you and I !!
  I was very impressed by the inputs of all the classmates the posted remarks. I thank each of you for taking time out of your schedule and share your feedback and thoughts. As our ETHS FIGHT SONG STARTS , "ETHS WE WILL FIGHT FOR YOU....." captures how I feel for our friendships, classmates,ETHS and Evanston. Let's make 2022 a great year ! Remember the more you put in / The More You Get Out! That is so true in life. God Bless each of you because you can make a difference!

Roger here we are some 7 or 8 years later since you have been on the website and your birthday is today. Happy 75 birthday! You were always a year younger!!!!
Tell our classmates about your book. What vitamin we should be taking each day. You have Jack and Lincoln wanting to stay healthy. Your classmates want to know what should we be taking ? One of our classmates told me he had 80 doctor’s appointment‘a last year. Getting older is not easy. I spoke to Jack after his workout the other morning so I know many of us do daily walks, workout and take some medicine to keep it going. ! Need your help for a donation. Both Jack and Lincoln have donated. Take some time to give back as your classmates have done. Your brother Guy has always given backs for Donations ! He won State Wrestling Championship and runners up as well!!

Thanks for your support. I will get you that information you need by the end of the day. Chris has been very responsive and supportive. Yesterday he received my donation at his house so I am confident I will have it later today. As I have previously stated , our classmates are the Best! As you know , our health is very important. As we grow older keeping my health is more difficult each year. So I go to my primary doctor every 3 months no drinking or smoking and daily walks. Most important, God is good! I will stay in touch.
Warm Regards,
