I want to make one more comment based on Jim Lenhart's insite to Tim and Miss. Baker. I came from Idaho in the winter to live in Helena. My teacher was also Miss. Baker. She used to chew me out all the time for being late to class when I was playing basketball at the YMCA located below Central School and she would constantly be telling me to take my hands out of my pockets. My Mother replaced Miss Baker for the rest of school year after her nervous break down. I think my Mother replaceing her was good for everybody in the class except for me, because my Mom said I had to behave while I was in her class. Tim told me at one of Dennis Dickert's picnics if I knew why Miss Baker put her head on her desk and would stare out the window. I said I had no idea. Tim went on to say that he asked her that question. She responded that she expected Jesus to come through that window. This supports Jim's idea of about her being a wacko. I am not sure that those people who attended her class did not inherit some her wackoness in each students own way. I cannot talk for Jim or Tim, but I know I blame some of my off the wall behavior on attending that class. Jim and I will have to compete for Tim's time in the next life. Jim can play baseball and I will see if I can get a tennis match. It was fun to know Tim.

Re. Jack Holt's Christmas message - Thanks, Jack. Best wishes for the holiday season. I am sure I speak for all of us when I say how much your dedication to and work on the class site is appreciated. As you have expressed, I too hope this year brings better things to all, and the stress, anxiety and particularly the divisiveness and hatred begins to wane. With any luck we can gather again this summer.
Tim was a friend and a wonderful man; he will forever be remembered with love and affection - Tim was defined by his amazing sense humor. I will never forget the time I introduced Tim to a friend – I said this is the infamous Tim Meloy, he was my Class President, Tim got this really serious look on his face and said “what do you mean WAS”! - it took me a second to get his humor, but in reality he will always be our Class President – I will miss this great man and his wonderful stories?
It tough for me to see that Tim is now gone. We competed against each other over our high schools years. My first time was running for freshman class president. I still remember his speech in the auditorium. His speech was full of humor and he exhibited a message of caring and warmth that mine did not have. He and I competed on the tennis court many times. He was always ranked above me. One day, he saw me playing against a backstop. He had noticed. that my grip was not right. He had no reason to help me, but he did and it made me better. We went separate directions after high school. When we would see each other, I could still feel the warmth of his friendship. Maybe in our next life, we can play again to see if my game has improved. I will miss you. Jack H.
God, so great to hear from you. Thank you for your birthday message. Yes, I am now a permanent in Az but not during the summer. We head north in June and return in late Sept.. always try to get to Helena for a few days to unwind but find myself anxious to leave as there is little to draw me back there anymore. I use it as mental health trip more than anything. How have you handled COVID so far? Are you still in medical practice or retired? Anyway hopefully someday you can arrive here in the desert and we can break bread and open up good wines
My best to you these Holidays

Jim, I am so sorry for the loss of your son. We are getting to age that our love ones start to leave us. For the love ones that have left me, my believe system provides me with the knowledge that I will see him in another life. If this was my son, I believe death is not the last sleep. It is an eternal awaking. Death is not the ending, it is a change marking the beginning of a more abundant life. We sometimes think of death as parting, which is true, but just think of meeting in eternity where bonds will never again be broken. Death is not going away, it is returning home. Your son will always be in your heart. When our time comes we know we will be together again forever.
Happy birthday Bonnie!
Hope to get to the next summer event maybe even here at our place!
