Keeping Caught Up....

I count myself in nothing else so happy as in a soul remembering my good friends. - Shakespeare

Another update on a different me

Hi, this is Bob Bateman. Just to give a quick update. I'm still in school at Utah State University up in Logan. I'll be finishing my Master's Degree in Speech-Language Pathology in May 2007. I got married in Dec 2002 to Lindy. We recently had our first baby in July 2005, Sydney Loren, She's adorable here's a link to our hospital pictures. We also have a homepage where we have some pictures of us, but we haven't updated it for a little while. We really need to get some more pictures of Sydney up soon. Once I'm finished with Grad school then we'll be moving back to the SLC area because all of our family lives there. I'm excited to here from everybody. ~Bob Bateman

Update on me

I live in, you guessed it, West Jordan. I was married in Aug. 2002 and I have a 15 month old girl named Lydia Elise. I work part time at a dental lab and my husband just started a job as an electrician apprentice. By the way, his name is Jake. I too have been wondering about old high school friends, especially since Eric died. I hope you all are doing well. --Anita

Death is a funny thing

It makes you think.... It makes you evaluate your life... and often times you will choose to change something in your life. Going back to Utah this past weekend for Eric's Memorial service was a different kind of experience. The memorial itself invoked in me a potpourri of feelings; sadness, calm, humor, terror, guilt, happiness, wonder... the list goes on. It was nice to see and hear the different perspectives people had on Eric and his life. He was something different to everyone he met. To me he was my closest friend. One of the few people in this world that I knew I could count on at to be there no matter what the situation. Someone to laugh with, cry with, argue with, relax with.... Someone that no matter how many times we seemed to annoy each other we could still say "I love you". He was my "Bengy" and I his "Crackers". I will always miss him, always love him, and always wish I had had more time with him. Love ya Beng!
