Gone, But Never Forgotten
Image
For those who have gone before us, we pause to remember. We also reflect on our dear friend Brenda Ro, whom we tragically lost during our 10th grade year. Gone but not forgotten, as they are forever in our hearts, shining down upon us from the holes in the floor of heaven. 

If you are aware of other classmates, teachers or school personnel who have since passed but are not listed below, please update this page. Their absence below is not because we have forgotten, but simply because we did not know.
