I want to tell you how much I enjoyed your website. I'm just back from
the reunion in Corpus Christi. They put up a picture of your dad and
information on the web page on a wall in the hospitality room. I'm sorry
you couldn't come personally so we could thank you for your interest.
Sandy, Mary & with son Randy at times, attended the following SLC Reunions:|
1985 1987 1989 1991 1993 1995 1997 1999 2001 2002 2003 2004 2006 2007 2008
We saved money for a year and were able to afford a wedding in a Methodist Church (neither of us is Methodist) with the pastor doing the ceremony and his wife as witness, a $12 gold ring and a one-night honeymoon in a local hotel. The next day, a Sunday, I covered a 50 year wedding anniversary party and when the people found out we had been married the day before insisted we both come in and join the party. We stayed for a short time and then left. Meanwhile, the editor of the paper had been trying to reach me for a day because on Saturday, the day we got married, somebody had been killed and my reporters hadn't been able to get a picture or much of a story. So much for a wedding.
Message from Sandy Eskew, Historian
Sandy has been a Newspaper editor for many years. He has written many
articles throughout his career. He has taken some of his favorites from
over the years and put them in a book titled, "Here I Am". The book was
published in about 1984, but some of the articles were written
long before that. He sent me a copy of his book and has given me
permission to post any of it that I want.
You want to hear a good story?
Ted D. Acri, S1c, who lived about a 100 miles from me but in the same state of
Pennsylvania, and I looked for a mutual Salt Lake friend,
R. J. "Bob" Bell, SKD3c for
years. I'm a semi-retired newspaper editor and pretty good at finding
people. Bob was from Philadelphia so we thought he might still be around.

I wanted to write you today to tell you about something that happened a
week ago. We had gone to Branson, MO to see some shows and were in St.
Louis where we get our plane to return home.
