Dear John,

 

Thank you so much for doing the DVD and for sharing the pictures and stories by email.  I have never looked forward so much to opening emails and seeing and hearing about our classmates.

 

I was born in Sarasota and continue to live in beautiful Sarasota.  I grew up on the north end of Siesta Key.  I went to Southside, Sarasota Jr. High, and Sarasota High.  I attended Manatee Junior College for one year.  I did get my two year degree many years later.
I worked for a propane company for 27 years.  I retired from there in 1994.

 

I have two children from my first marriage.  My daughter is a teacher in Pasco County.
My son lives in Sarasota and is an electrician.  I am in my second marriage since 1994.
We love boating and fishing.  We usually make one trip a year to the Florida Keys diving for lobster.

 

I try to walk at least four days at Siesta Beach. (A ten minute drive from my home in off season.)  My biggest hobby is sewing.  I love making terry and screen totes for gifts and sales at local craft fairs.

 

I know our classmates who have not been back to Sarasota or have not been back for five or ten years will see great changes.  Sarasota is still a beautiful place to visit or live.  Welcome to all who are coming in October.  Eddie (Edwina White Lockwood)
