Where to begin. So many, many memories. Our mischievious antics that only a few have knowledge of. To unlimited golf cart rides around the lake meeting new friends. Of course there is the fishing excursions. Who caught the first fish and who caught the biggest fish. It seems like you always won one if not both. I can't remember who we had to show how to polka, but we did it well. All of the navigational issues we had on our little rides. The night we could go no further because of standing water at the bottom of the road. Thank goodness we had the sensible Payton with us to guide us out. "Watch out for Payton" you said over and over again. Like I was going to run her over. So many fun times. The almost unbelieveable way that we formed our friendship. What were the odds that two Nebraska girls who graduated the same year from differesnt high schools would end up just up and around the corner in such a remote place? It was a common bond that we shared. And of course there were all the Cornhuskers games that you and Russ hosted for us. It aways meant so much more sharing them with you guys. I can't imagine how it is going to go without you there, but I promise you that I will do everything in my power to keep us all together whether you are there physically or not. I know you will always be there in spirit. I will keep watch over Russ and your kids. We will always have memories of our times together. I have no doubt that I will still reach out to you for advice and guidance often. There is going to be a large hole in our lives, but we will keep you forever in our hearts. I love you and miss you my very, very dear friend. Jan
