Francesca Wade Felde. Sweet Fran Wade. Here's what her memory book page says: "I was pregnant with our son at the last reunion. Our family moved to a small rural town in Colorado before Peter was 2. I have been working at the local power company most of the time since we moved. My husband [Stephen] is a tile installer. Ridgway is an hour away from the ski resort of Telluride and I work in Ouray which is a summer tourist town. The county's population is less than 3,600."

Lisa Cullen. One of the Three Lisas from College Park Elementary -- Lisa Dahill and Lisa Villanueva (who moved away) being the other two. Lisa's memory book page says: "When I was 16 I moved in with my mom in LA; I graduated from Santa Monica High School. In 1986, I moved to Northern Cal. and then graduated from UC Berkeley with a major in English literature. I have lived in the Bay Area since then. Since 1989 I've been working as a technical writer, more specifically, as an online help author for software and the web. I am also a poet, a performance artist, a Buddhist, a massage therapist, and a meditation teacher. I have half a Master's degree from SF State in Creative Writing. I am preparing to be ordained into the Western Buddhist Order in September of 2001."
In case you're wondering, I never went out with any of the girls in any of these pictures. I never got to know them well enough. There are only a handful of people from the CMHS Class of 1981 that I had any contact with after 9th grade. So for me, this wasn't so much a 20-year high school reunion, as it was a 24-year middle school reunion.
