Comments:

Life really is a series of descisions, and there is no way to go back,(I really wish I could, I took a lot of wrong turns) but you can apply what you have learned and push forward...know there is a God and he loves us. This isn't all there is! ****Elvis had it all and he was't happy?****

Well, you have not heard a word from me since 2016...I have had my share of disasters, but while riding my motorcycle KTM RC8R down the HWY 18, I noticed a Ford truck pulling in behind me. In short, he slammed me from behind, I pulled out of it, but not enough to make the turn. I hit the center divider and flew over it and landed in the fast lane of oncoming traffic...DEAD. At Loma Linda Hospital the doctors circled my bed after the load of testing they did. The protective gear helped, however, they told me I had been deceased for 30 to 45 minuted. The Paramedics kept working on me, first bill I paid. I know because I was taken up, long story, but I was brought back.

Went back to work and was blessed with a new callback.....I will be doing Voice Over and am Social Media Administrator for an upcoming TV show on Motor Trend Network called "The 900 Series"..........it is all about Porsche s and has been a new excitement to work on. Check us out on FB, and the Web.
I miss you all and the reunion coming up. I am not 100% but all parts function (mostly).
Take care, love you ALL!
Eddie

Oh, you should know, there is life after death, so read the Bible!!!!!!

School Story:

Family support, encouragement, trust and love???????????? How do you put 59 years in a short story and, well, why am I not going to the Reunion? My childhood?????? My earliest memory is being at Eden Hospital with a guard at the door and when my parents or people came in they were wearing masks. They said it was Lukemia....This went on for 8 months, then that I guess it was some kind of miracle because it went away. There was a year long recovery. I did enter Thomas Jefferson for first grade and man that WAS FUN. I had a spirit within me that loved people and I was full of life. That was when my parents decided I was to much to handle and started beating me. By today's standards, they would have been put in jail and this continued for the rest of my adolesent life, however sometimes a kind moment would come along. What a lot of anger in them. They told me I was either always "late, wrong or stupid". Just never could do anything right. Bad dreams still haunt me...Like they say, that is part of life???? After 1st grade, they moved me to St Peter's Lutheran School. They said I needed guidence and direction. I spent the next seven years there with great friends many you know Janet Finke, Pam Chick, Jackie Kaul, Bob Schultz and Chuck Volgelsang who I played basket ball with where we led our team to a East Bay Championship in 8th grade. Well on to Bancroft Junior High...and acne started, but the deep destructive type that made me crawl up in a shell. This went on into the high school years. I was given radiation and experimental medication that put me on my back for 6 month in my junior year summer and that is why I was 2 months late to start the senior year. Yes, I was called pizza face and more. Deep down I still had a life and personality trying to get out. When I started college I had no means of support. My parents we not there to help, so I went to work and tried to go to school, but it was two different lives and they collided. Got drafted, went down to the induction center and took all the tests, but due to my injuries, I was declared 4F. I worked on cars and worked for VW dealers..for years. Got married, had two beautiful daughters. One morning I entered a Wolfman Jack sound alike contest and won fro KYA in San Francisco. I was invited down to the station by Rob Conrad, an on air DJ. Now my emotions ran out of control. I felt as if my body temperature was 104 and the anxiety was out of control. Now what do I do? I knew deep down I had to rely on God and step forward out of this mental prison I was living in. Oh my, this was not easy. Left foot, right foot making small steps. One thing led to another and was then working for Gary Mora for about 10 years doing live shows..Some as many as 4,000 people. It really let me become myself. I did this and worked at the dealer so after working two jobs for at that time 6 years I had two physical breakdowns...ya, 2 hours sleep a night does not go on forever. The memories meeting the Rock and Roll greats is everlasting along with appearing at the Punch Line in SF to Bimbo's 365 Circle Star and about 800 other shows. Wow , what a ride. I worked under the name Eddie Bear...It was the high of my life making other peolple get up and dance. Chuck Berry was imemorable too. During the later years my wife became mentally ill and you know there is not help for everyone out there. We we divorved. The divorce attorneys got everything and that means everything. Time to start over. I got back on shows and have worked for a large German parts importer ever since. Some voice over and restoring vintage cars and a great marriage to Robbin Lynn( Miss February) So with this and my love for surfing all through it all, we moved to Huntington Beach or the real Surf City. I love it here, and little did I know it was also a mecca for Classic Cars and Hot Rods. A lot of the car show are here Chip Foose , Jesse James and more. I was not allowed to date in high school and did not go to any events. I love you all!!!!!!Through the years I am now missing a 1/2 disc in my neck, broken tail bone, and still on two feet, well I could go on but that first miracle was not the only one I experienced. It was clear God is alive and His son Jesus Christ who I learned about years ago is so real to me and I can see why time is marked with His birth and how this one man has changed the world. No matter what you might have done in your life, He is there. Ask around, there are more people than you think that know how life changing and wonderful this life is. This is not all there is and even if you stray, you will always know he is there to take you back. I know that, because I have in the past. His love is immeasurable! He is my Father! Take careand enjoy the reunion...............................................................................Epilogue.....................................I had my bother inlaw..graduate USC with honors, Editor of the USC Newspaper, Asst. Editor of the San Jose Mercury News, take his own life...Yes, a human being can reach a breaking point or a moment in time where this sems like the only answer.........Without Christ living inside you, I fully understand how this can take place. I do understand...so please seek the Lord. He loves you and wants to take care of you. Time is a vapor and life has it's seasons.

Hello Marry, It has been 50 years since you left for Ill. With your family. We learned at St. Peter's anout Jesus and His love and care for us. He blessed you with a great man and Ken was jut that, great. Thank Jesus. He is in your heart just asKen is. Thank Him, smile. You were blessed. What did the deciples do after Jesus left? They grew and got stonger. Life can have a sting to it, but we grow. "I will never leave you or forsake you!". Smile now and thank Him. Happiness comes from within and we are here for you! Ed D. 8

My heart bleeds when I see and hear about the passing of a classmate. In our youths we never even had to think this day would ever arrive. I am so sad to hear of Susan's pasing.
