Sad news to report. Terry Andrada was murdered in San Diego this past Friday. From what I understand, Terry took in a young gal he knew who was afraid of an abusive boyfriend. The boyfriend went to Terry's home, shot Terry, the young gal and turned the gun on himself. I'm not sure how many of you will remember Terry - he went to Cedar Crest, Portland and maybe a little while at JFK - then when his family moved he went to Jefferson. He took me to JFK dances even after moving. A really sweet, funny guy - he will be missed. 

Does anyone else remember Mrs. Andrada yelling "Ruthie, Lisa, Terry Ben" at dinnertime?!

It is sad to hear that people we graduated with have past on.  Loosing anyone especially childhood classmates can be difficult.  For me this year has been difficult loosing 3 family members mom, husband's brother and sister.  Good news also though one of my daughter's just got married and is expecting. If anyone is in the Duluth area she is on channel 6 news. My other daughter just turn 34 so I'm feeling my age now.

All my prayers are with those who have lost family members. Glad to be on this discussion board.

I agree with you Tom, it is sad to see our class diminish. I pray those that have passed lived life well and that we will recognize that life is short. Let's make the best of it by forgiving offenses, doing good to others, finding ways to be a blessing, and being thankful.

Sue- congratulations! You must be very pleased with your children finding their way in life. Good job and well done!!

Susan M. Kusz (Evans)

I agree with you Carol it is part of the reason I mentioned the fact that we have lost quite a few of our Class of 78.  The world is not the same as when we were in school but one thing remains the same the lack of peace especially in our own country.  We should all work toward getting along with others and not holding grudges life is too short.

Take care class of 78! I am looking forward to coming to the upcoming class reunion.

I have not heard details on Sally yet either .  Going to reach out to Cathy Clark, who has been pretty fairly close to her still, living  in the area .  I found out from Sharon   Jensen last week . No one seems to have details that I know. It's quite sad, Sally was a great person , she will be missed .<3

I remember Terry Andrada from Oak Grove Jr HIgh ( I believe)

It is reayll sad, and bums me out to hear of his passing.  I always thought he was a neat guy, seemed to be nice to everyine in school.  ( Its even sadder when you remember people as kind & really neat individuals, and maybe they never knew how many people had  fond recollections of them )

It sounds like he was a great person to everyone he knew as well.  ( after hearing the clips from the news)

May he rest in peace. Tragic end, makes no sense. <3
