Kathy, I was working at Florida State University, two hours from the University of Florida in Gainesville, at the time of the murders. There was panic on Florida college campuses. Parents came to the FSU campus to pick up their kids, police were everywhere. (Remember that Ted Buddy committed his murders on the FSU campus so there was fear that this was some sort of copycat.) It was a huge relief when Danny Rolling was caught.

Thanks Mark and Jan. Glad it's not a Hoyt family we knew. I do remember Ted Bundy. I love the ID channel. Zac Efron played him well. So many sick people disguised as normal. So glad we have DNA and Ancestry available now.

I was living in Gainesville and teaching at the University of Florida when the murders occurred, and the brother of one of my students was the first suspect (subsequently cleared). There was total panic in the community for about a week, and the horror of it all still remains.

I can't imagine. No one could get over that. You just learn to "live" with it. Truth can be so much more evil than fiction.

Happy belated birthday Bill & Chip!!  Hope you guys had a great day!

Sorry I'm late, but I am still not receiving any message forum notifications or birthday notifications.

I will not be able to be at the April Fundango (I'll be in Myrtle Beach). Have a fun time, and hope to see everyone in May.  Miss everyone.

I am sad to report that our classmate Kim (Frisk) Jensen passed away from Covid-19 at St. Vincents on April 13th.  His sister called me tonight and asked me to let the class know.  A few weeks ago Kim called me and asked if we could get a Fandango started back up now that we are all vacinated, or close to it.  My subsequent contact with Ed and Dale resulted in the April 20th one at Manhattan's.  We will raise a toast to Kim for being a dedicated Great Class of '68 classmate. God Speed Kim, you will be missed.

Oh No! Kim called me a few weeks ago... I mentioned that I had gotten my first vaccination and asked him if he had gotten his.. He told me that He wasn't going to get vaccinated because he had already survived covid and was immune.... I guess he must have contracted the disease a second time...So sorry to loose another classmate... :(.. Kim taught me how to do a flip off the 3 meter board out at Centennial back in the day. He was a good guy.. Catch you on the other side Kim.. :( please Spartans let this be a lesson.. Get vaccinated AS SOON AS YOU CAN!!!

I'm very saddened to hear of Kim's passing. He was one of my closest friends of the class of 68'. It is strange that just this week I was going through the year book and pictures I've kept of our Sr. year. One of them was of Kim and I decorating Mr. Eller's home room for color day. I will cherish the many memories that we made together during our days at Start HS. Rest in peace my friend.

Marc Hall

Oh no! I spoke to Kim several times since the reunion. We met as Freshman at Start and remained close even after graduation. We went to Centennial Quarry that summer of 68 almost daily. I introduced him to a friend and they dated for some time. We used to sit in his 61 Olds convertable with the top down and debate evrything from girls to the Universe! I lost track of Kim when I went into the service until we reunited at the reunion. I am so glad for the reunion.

I will miss you, my friend.

So sad - losing too many of our classmates.  Rest in peace to those gone before us.  It does make you stop & think.  My deep sympathy to the families.

So sorry to hear of Kims passing due to Covid. I hope everyone is being safe, getting vaccinated and keeping their family healthy. My son and daughter-in-law just had a bout with Covid...she spent 5 days in the hospital. They are now doing better, she is home now, but put a scare into me because I know how deadly this virus is.

I've gotten both my shots but I am still careful when going out to places. Hopefully we will all get through this terrible pandemic that has taken so many family and friends!

Be safe all !!!

I am just heartbroken to hear that we have lost Kim. He was one of my first friends when I transferred to Start in my junior year.  I was planning to visit my sister in Toledo later this year and catch a Fundango to see him in particular later this year.  My heartfelt condolences to his family.  Please everyone, get vaccinated and share your love every day with friends and family.

That's sad about Kim. We played hoops at the YMCA after HS for years. Saw him recently at Wildwood walking trails a couple of times. Guess these are the times we're in and they're not always pleasant
