Comments:

After those glorious days at East, I went to the U of U and graduated. I went back to school immediately and got my masters in Special Ed. I met Robb at the beginning of college and we were married after I graduated and he had gone off to Dental School at Georgetown University in WDC. We lived there for four years and both worked for Sen. Jake Garn. I did computor entries and he was a senate page everynight after school. He ran the elevators. Way back then they were manual. Way Back Then!!!! I also taught special ed for Fairfax County.
We then joined the Navy and moved to San Diego. One year out of the three we spent in Okinawa, Japan. We had our first born...Taylor, "made in Japan," like everything else.
We finished our last year in San Diego with the Navy and then moved back to Richmond Virginia where Robb specialized in endodontics. (That is brain surgery on a tooth incase that doesn't sound familiar to you)
We spent two years there and had another boy, Jordan. We moved back to Salt Lake in the same neighborhood as Bill Larson and Jim McCullough. We have been here ever since. We had three more children, Warner, Eliza and William.
We also helped raise our great niece Caitlin. It was nice to have two daughters with all those boys around. Then we took in JR, our Hawaiian boy. All are married now, except our Rock Star.
We have loved travelling, golfing, biking, boating, skiing, and snowmobiling, which is Robb's greatest passion. I am a good sport cause it is so dang cold!!! Yellowstone is our January trip. Most people go in the summer, but not us. We pack up the winter gear and trailor the snowmobiles up in the dead of winter.
So now its 2019 and a little updating is needed. Everyone is married but our oldest Taylor. He is in a band ROYAL BLISS and travels all around. He has a great girlfriend and a six month old baby Nellie that we adore. The rest of the grown kids are married and we have 16 grandchildren. Five babies came along in six months. That keeps me busy! Life just keeps going and going, but I still feel like I'm literally YOUNG still til I look in the mirror. Yikes.....whos that?

I an so glad you are coming to the reunion. You are coming from a long ways! Gosh the years have gone by. Thank goodness we will have name tags with our old high school photos or I don't think I would recognize anyone. I'll look for you!

Kristi - I was so sad to hear about your John, I am so sorry. Way to young to leave, but we don't have much to do with timing. You have a darling family and grand kids. They will keep you busy I'm sure. Can't wait to see you at the reunion coming up so soon.

Annechien - Its Becky Young Richards. Do you remember me? Its been a long time since High school and I am a gray haired lady now! You look great in your photo and you two look very happy. Hawaii must be your Happy Place cause its mine whenever I get a chance to go. Maybe living there is different than vacationing. You may know about our 50th High School Reunion coming up September 5th and 6th. If by chance you are visiting here in Salt Lake...you should come and bring your husband. We'd love to see you. I know you are far away, but you never know when a stateside visit is due. I'll email you also incase you don't get this message. Fun to chat with you.

Terry - It's Becky Young Richards! What a wild and crazy time we had in those Junior High and High School days! It looks like you are living in Illinois. Do you get home to Salt Lake ever. you might know about the reunion this September 5th and 6th. We'd love to have you join us and whom ever you bring along. I'm going to also email you and hope that one of these messages gets to you. We could chat about our old days. I do love the picture of you and Joann and Karen. What great women.
Let me know if you ever get this note.
Fun to chat.....later
