Long Time Friends - 1940 ~ 2005

[Back to topic list] [Back to Diamond Lake Michigan - 1942 Topic]

Long time friendships that began in the 1940s continue to be best friends on October 12, 2005. We gathered around the dinner table at Diamond Lake, told stories, laughed and some got teary. The hostess presented in theatrical form a gift that was meaningful to that particular friend that reflected way back in its contents. Helen, Art, Ernie, Pat, Jane, Heps, Dorene, Bob, Shirley, Jerry.
