Besides work went to Germany in June 2000 to see relatives once more & world's fair in Hannover.
Went through divorce mess but kept the house-least now-enjoy trimming hedge, gardening, Old Market area.
History, Art, music & literature are my passion-am a "folk" singer/songwriter of somewhat local fame but due to past shyness has been tough-however written over 100 (more to come probably) & self-recorded over 50-now with help from local musician recording artists last few yrs-2 CD or cassettes out locally & 2 mini ones-hope to do Native Am. & environmental & one more kids one in the next few years-memory of Mother of course.
Wow-where has the time gone? Seems like yesterday graduated-much good & bad but been grt life overall-single again but enjoy my small circle of friends & with a song in my heart & mind I carry on the battle & pleasures of life!
Best to all-hope to see you all soon next yr-a yr. of promise, maturity & history in the making!

School Story:

Remember the grt teachers-gone before-among them Jack Shofstall & Ruby Duryea (whom wrote song about-"Lady McBeth"-yes I remember you in that will me Tate-perfectionist!), also good neighbor friend George Brown-am in Audubon now because of his love of birds/carvings.
Of course I miss Philip, Terry & all my classmates gone greatly but feel we will meet again!

Hobbies and Interests:

Music, art, singing songwriter, history-esp.of the Civil War-am active in Sons of Union Veterans-marionettes (Die Schnur Puppen)-German-Am. Society, my local church, etc.

Good write-up however most of us who knew him know that he was a Walmart Greeter also for many years I believe & had a bad stroke years before but kept up getting around regardless with support from his wife, family & friends! He also was an active youth leader-in both sports & I believe church also. When living in Kearney & going to KSC we were active together in FBC's BYF then & traveled to different places like Scottsbluff in the early 1970's I remember for one!

RIP good friend-my sincere sympathy to all his family & friends-he is missed & will always be remembered now! Joe C. Mettenbrink
