    Re: The photo of Jerry Couchman and Gary Tetrick receiving an award – the minister is definitely not Carl Calhoun. I think it is Rev. Lamka (ask Jerry).

    As I re-visited the “Coachman” photo shown above I brushed away yet another tear thinking about Dave Brewster’s recent passing. I am sure most of you were not aware but we had seriously considered putting a few tunes together and playing at our 50th, just as we played for our graduation dance. We had practiced a couple summers ago and even though we sounded like “The Door’s” on some Jimmi Hendricks very strong chemicals, we still had the passion. Sadly, It didn’t happen, but our heads were in the right space. As a reminder, Dave’s sister Carol has organized a memorial service for this coming Thursday the 10th at 11:00 am at the Congregational Church here in Bellingham. If you can, please attend ……………. it would mean so very much to Dave’s family and friends. As we would say …………….. I know, it’s only Rock & Roll, but I like it!

    Thanks …………… Stan Reimer
