Your editor remembers Joe very well. Was it from Jeff Jr. days? Did we struggle together with mastering the art of wrestling in PE class? I'm certain we both struggled with the vastness of the Hickman community and the usual dose of complicated internal teenage goofiness. Where are you, Joe? Help us out?
5/29: There are now 26 paid registrations for our 40th Reunion. You can pay online on our registration page.
Our goal is to have at least 200 attend our 40th Reunion out of a class of 650 classmates. Paid registrations are indicated with a * at Kewpies Connect. You can also track who is coming by visiting Who Will Be There? The next update of paid registrations will appear here on June 1.
Mary has always lit up the rooms she enters. We're just not sure which rooms they are nowadays. Our records show that she was last on LaSalle Place in Columbia, Missouri.
You can put some light on the subject by sharing what you know right here.
FOUND: A perfect name for a perfect mystery and now solved. Coy McWaters is the new name. The mystery man was not such a mystery afterall. George G. knew the right clue.
Coy lives outside the small Kentucky town of Bardwell. Now the question: will Coy be at the reunion. It's too early to tell.
Jerry LaBrue, Max Fisher, George Gibson and Dale Chrisman are Coy's friends and they want to see him at the reunion this year.
Our records hold out one, faint clue for Debbie's whereabouts: her married name.
We will have to depend on you to fill in the details of her profile. We don't know her city, state or zip; we don't know her phone number or email. Where should we start? Help provide any shred of information here.
Your editor remembers that Kristine always had this exact smile every day. Last we knew, her married name in Columbia MO was Burnham but we don't have a mailing or email address. If you figure it out, help us by dropping the information here, OK?
The last dozen dozen (132 and counting down) missing Kewpies are the subject of a much more sharply focussed search. We share the clues that exist in our database and ask for your help finding Amy Bassett, Bonnie Cockrell, Tim Timmerman, Vickye Campbell, Nellie (Prince) Caldwell, Christine (Neal) Jensen, Tom Worstell, Bill Idle, Betty (Warren) Washington, Pam (Smith) Marinelli, Jim Pettit, and Gayle (Burton) Witt.
Amy Ellen Bassett may not be on your radar but her family will know where she's living and what she's doing. They live on Jake Lane in Columbia MO. That's all the clues we have for finding Amy. Maybe they could fill in the blanks for us...
Your editor draws a blank. I do not remember this name. I do not recall ever seeing this intelligent, confident face. But that isn't a problem because there is such a robust, connected network of Kewpies who will know Bonnie and where she is and what she's doing...and they'll enter her contact information right here. Y'all are amazing. Thank you.
FOUND: Tim was never really missing. In fact, no Kewpie is ever missing. The fact is that we each lose track of friends and neighbors. A reunion is an excuse to re-connect with classmates...and shared experiences and stories. The story about Tim is that he works for the Columbia Police Department and is seen quite often around Columbia. You may have seen him and forgotten that he was a 1971 Kewpie. It's time to remember.
