Dottie King couldn't make the reunion, but sent this email message.

Dear John,

Hoping you will greet our classmates for me. It makes me sad to know we have lost 1/4 of our classmates. Bob and I will be celebrating our 56th anniversary June 21st in Kennebunkport, Maine. Sue Sell and Nancy Neff were in our wedding party. I want to express my thanks to my classmates for a wonderful time growing up in Madison, sharing the theater, Miss Huxtable's choir singing in the state capital, and many sporting events. Just this weekend, at a wedding in San Francisco, I sat next to a gentleman whose father graduated from Madison West in 1943. Our project at Stanford is keeping us quite busy, so at 78 we haven't begun rocking in our rocking chairs just yet. Greetings to all of my wonderful friends at the reunion.

Love, Dottie

ps. An update on Janet and Bill Preston. Janet is a cancer survivor and we celebrated recently in Palo Alto.

That's Janet Johnson Preston on the right.  Janet attended West High through 10th grade and then moved to Colorado, then to California.

Thanks for the nice note, Dottie.
