I guess I go ahead and ask...can you update me any on Marv Kangas or Stan and Lyle Niemi? And while I'm at about our ole track coach Lahti?

I've had a strong wave of nostalgia hit me as you can probably tell.

Bob Lahti may be living in duluth yet. There's one his age. No sightings of any of them though.

I saw several Marvin Kangas's including that one had died but I hoped it was not 'our' Marv. Jeez the wind is really out of my sails right now.

We went to church on the edge of Elk is south edge of what a coincidence. Vacaville is between Sacramento and SF.

Thanks for the info...Marv and Dave were frozen in time for me so it's almost as if they were still teenagers and died.

It's nothing new. Generation after generation this happens. What is so strange is there are still guys alive that fought in WWII having reunions although they are really thinning out now. Of course I thought that ten years ago and there are still more around than you would think. I've lived here 25.5 years...I was in duluth 25 years after WWII...time freaks me sometimes.

Even you are frozen in time from 1984 when you visited in Enid. I can still see your vehicle disappearing around the corner as you left. Even seeing a few photos of you it's not the same as if I were seeing you face to face so Koski is frozen in my mind as 30 years old.

When the Olympics are back in LA in 2028 it will have been 44 years since they were there in 84!!!! Going back 44 years the other way only 4 years removed from 36 Olympics in Germany...Hitler and Jesse Owens, etc. Like I said...time freaks me.

Marv was next to me in the team photos for track and CC. Dave is not in the 'regular' photos of each class that I can find anyway. Dave wrote a nice little note in my 71-72 yearbook. You and Jay signed as well as 'Hair Oil' Harold Stevenson.
