Our service men and women who've given their all

Can't think of anyone in our familys that passed on in March but for some reason remember several of our old Citizens Band (CB) amateur radio friends passed on in March. Dave H. probably remembers them too

By Russell E. Emmons (Russemmons) on Saturday, April 4, 2009 - 11:53 pm:

Remembering Jan Genereaux. She and her husband Gary, one of my best boyhood friends, stood up for our wedding 49 years ago (April 13) and we stood up for theirs. Just found out today she passed away 2 weeks ago, so one in March now to remember.
We haven't been in contact with them much in recent years but so sad nevertheless.

The young kids mentioned above is especially disheartening to us as all our kids went to the same school as they did.
Every serious accident I've been in or seen where someone was killed or maimed, drinking was involved!
