Friendships Revisited

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

I have really been slacking on keeping up with my blog. It's because I was working on helping plan my 20th high school reunion for Heidelberg American High School in Germany.  Unfortunately, not all of my classmates could join us.  Facebook played an integral role in helping locate classmates and get the word out about our upcoming gathering.  Lucky for me, it's been a place where I've been able to reconnect with friends I have not seen nor heard from in decades.  Ray is one of them.  He is an active duty service member whom I'm proud to say,  continues to serve our country.  He was excited about the prospect of meeting up with old friends and classmates, but was unable to join us because of scheduling issues.
Lucky Me! I live in Florida where he happened to be visiting family - close enough that I was able to meet up with him. He invited me to his parent's house and I had the pleasure of spending the day with his extended family and meeting his wife and daughters. He was a special friend in school (I know, I say that about all of my classmates but it's just about the Heidelberg bond we have!) and it's such a gift to be able to revisit that time and renew our friendship, while welcoming his children and wife to the Heidelberg family.
These are a sneak peek of some of the photos I was able to capture.
