Until our 50th Reunion, I had not seen or heard of Pam since our Olympus graduation.  When it was clear she was coming, I looked forward to seeing her again. 

In reflecting on that positive anticipation, I’ve tried to recall why.  Pam and I never dated, and I cannot remember any particular event from our high school days.  Even so, my impression of Pam, which has lasted over a half-century, was of a remarkably pretty girl who treated me, an uber-nerd, with genuine kindness and friendship.  I felt far from worthy, and yet, her capacity for true kindness and thoughtfulness made my high school experience not only more tolerable but truly welcoming and friendly.  Back then, I felt I didn’t deserve to be so regarded by such a cute girl.  Unaccountably to me but true to her character, she was the kind of dear soul who honestly cared for all those around her regardless of their rung on the social ladder. 

It was a delight to reconnect, even though briefly, at the reunion, and I’m deeply saddened that she lost her last battle with disease.  She was a classy lady in the very best sense of those words. 

So disappointed that she is gone.

hi Linda... Kristine's passing, bless her, gave me a chance to catch up again with a few profiles that i've either missed or (more likely) forgotten.. you know how forgetfullness seems to multiply... I had totally forgotten about the Copenhagen airport run in... but true, its funny that in a world of several billion persons, I run into an Olympus student every now and then. I had to laugh at your description of learning Danish... for a very brief time in the mid 70s I was pals with a Panam flight attendant who was from Denmark - a great, funny, woman whose travels, like my own, were often and usually last minute... we spent time (i.e. a day or two) in Tokyo, Paris, NY, and Hawaii... and at one point, in an attempt to impress her, I bought (and still have somewhere..) a "Learn Danish in 4 Weeks" book... the next time I saw her, I hadn't gone past "ik talle dansk..." and she burst into laughter (perfect English laughter of course...) and that was the end of my Danish lessons. Ill always remember you as the lead agent in getting our fourth grade class (can you imagine 4th graders doing ANYTHING these days, other than video games?) in getting all of us to chip in 25 or 50 cents and buy Mrs Rockwell (or was it Rockwood?) a set of baby blankets... one pink one blue since we didnt at the time know (nor did she) the baby's sex... and she started to scold us that day, thinking we were making fun of her pregnancy, when in fact we the students of 4th grade... were just pleased to celebrate her new baby's impending arrival... and when she realized that, she made the most wonderful thank yous to us. You were definitely in charge of that one... im always amazed at the crystilline quality of some memories which are 50 or60 years gone, but they have made such impressions. I was so sorry to see that Connie G had suffered so much in her grown up life... and Kristine too... I can't really think of any two women who might have deserved it less. Anyway.... vic-chu-als aside... its fun to catch up on here, i only wish our reunion evening had gone on longer.. there were a lot of folks who, even with name tags, i didnt recognize.. and many who hadn't changed a whit since '64. Hope all is good with you and the family.. .by the way.. is Willy the older brother of Vagn? I was on yearbook photo (my first year in photography) with Vagn and he was light years ahead of me in photo knowledge...
warm regards from NYC (where i apparnetly have lived for 40+ years.. though, like you probably, it sure doesn't seem like it)

Michael Perry emailed this remembrance into the site.  I'm posting it for him.  -Harv Cahoon

In my youth Roy was one of my best friends. It was Roy that first introduced me to the world of birding and art. There was no one who could draw like Roy. While I didn't pursue a course in art I did follow a path into ornithology and falconry. Roy and I would sleuth around the neighborhood looking for new species to add to our list. It led to a fascination of falconry and thanks to Roys super mom who droves us to the mountains and canyon habitats near East Canyon looking for nests and eyries. A nest of Sparrow Hawks (now called Kestrels) became our focus. Determined, Roy and I gathered two soon to be fledged birds for our start in the "Kings" sport. The years passed and we lost touch when we changed schools but I will always remember with great fondness Roy, his dad and mom and the seeds they planted in my life that both enriched and brought joy to me. Thank you Roy for the great friend you were to me in my youth.
