Things have changed as they usually do over the years. I am now pretty much a full-time caregiver and like I told my wife, she followed me around for 30+ years and played both father and mother many of those years, it's my turn to reciprocate.

I am looking forward to next year for our reunion, it surely doesn't seem like it has been 4 years since our last one. We haven't come up with a date yet but will soon.

School Story

I painted my bedroom school colors red and white and my sister and her friends tried to bleach my hair and it turned reddish orange so I was totally East High Colors for a while!

I too will add my memories of Roger, as a member of the Band and Orchestra for two years but was never very good; however, I could hold my own because I learned to read music. My third and fourth Grade Thompson books helped and signing with my family was even better. I didn't practice much so I only went so far with the horn. Roger was a mentor and helped prop me up with was down on myself as a musician, he would give me encouragement which helped a lot. During my senior year (due to my working almost full time plus learning to fly in the evenings) I couldn’t be in Choir and Orchestra like many of you so I picked one that was easiest for me so I auditioned with Loraine Bowman and made it as a tenor.

I will always remember Roger and his positive attitude about life in general and his unique ability as a musician and mentor. Rest in peace my friend and maybe you have met my wife already, she had a better voice than me!

Obituary of Luella Maria Barlow Smith

After a long and courageous journey with cancer, Luella Maria Barlow Smith, 73—wife of Steven Glen Smith—passed away peacefully on February 21, 2021, at home surrounded by her loving family. Maria was born on November 24, 1947, in Santa Monica, California, the only daughter and youngest child of Edmund Garrett and Evva Maria Burnham Barlow.

Maria graduated in 1965 from Santa Monica High School and in 1967 from Willis Business College. Following graduation, she followed her father and mother to Columbus, Ohio, where she became her father’s personal secretary as he opened up the Ohio Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Maria loved serving alongside her parents, and it was there she met Steven. After she returned home, they dated and were sealed for time and all eternity on August 23, 1968, in the Salt Lake City Temple.

Maria loved life and was a friend and example to all those who knew her. She was a seamstress and avid reader. Maria also had a passion for the arts, including, painting, card making and paper crafts. For many years, even while her health was weak, she regularly held craft nights with family and friends. Maria was a devoted wife and mother who loved attending musicals, sporting events, baptisms, and birthday celebrations. She loved spending time with her husband, children, and grandchildren.

Maria’s faithfulness to her Savior, Jesus Christ, influenced the way she lived her life. She was a Christian and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Serving as the Primary chorister was her favorite church calling, as she loved little children and teaching them about the Savior through music. Her family was a recipient of her beautiful voice as she would often sing or hum around the home. Maria believed being a mother was her life’s mission. Throughout her life, her children gathered around her for gospel conversations and motherly advice; she was the ultimate “late-night listener.” She will be remembered as someone whose infectious smile and laugh brought warmth and joy to everyone. Although cancer was a difficult trial for 22 years of her life, Maria’s example to endure with grace and humility will be cherished and remembered forever.

In addition to her parents, Maria is preceded in death by her brother Norman and sisters-in-law, Joan and Norma. Surviving her are her husband, six sons, one daughter, and eighteen grandchildren: Steven Michael (Susie Paulsen), Brandon, Alyssa, Tyler, Jessica, and Danielle; Jason Edmund (Emily Camacho), Lissa and Joshua; James McKay (Melissa Richardson), McKayla, Allison, Hailey, Spencer, Julie, and Sydney; Joel Theron (Karen Peterson), Dallin, Nathan, Ian, Benjamin, and Declan; Matthew Garrett; Emily Maria (Robert Bennett); and David Matthew. Also surviving Maria are her brothers, Lynn, Glenn, James (Joan), Paul (Amy), Loree, (sister-in-law), Joel (Mary Lou) and David (Lorraine).

A viewing will be held on February 24, 2021, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Sundberg Olpin & Wheeler Funeral Home, 495 South State Street, Orem, Utah. The funeral service will be held on February 25th at 11:00 a.m. The service will be broadcast live on Facebook at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/sundbergolpinfuneralhome Interment will be at the Orem Cemetery, 1520 North 800 East, Orem, Utah. Donations are welcome in Maria’s name, to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. https://www.komen.org/how-to-help/donate/

We are going through trying times because of COVID-19 and it has affected the world and our country in a terrible way. I am not sure it was intentional but weather it was or not we haven't been very good at working together as a divided country to help mitigate the results of the pandemic. A colleague of mine sent me this prayer (he is a devote Christian and faculty member at ISU) which is something that we all could hope for weather we are religious or not. He is actually more conservative than me and I told him thanks for sending the prayer and I would share it with my friends.

Do you pray? If so, join me in this one. Probably daily.

"Heavenly Father, we need You! Please sweep through this nation and heal this land. Restore our strength, renew our minds, and cast out anything that's not of You. Bring this country together in ways that have never been seen before. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray, Amen."

Happy birthday Craig, I too enjoyed my time in the Orchestra although it was short lived. I couldn't be in Orchestra and Choir, I was working and flying my senior year.

We had a great time yesterday and thanks to Glen and especially George for bringing his generator. We need to do it again next year, just getting together and enjoying each other's company in my opinion was well worth the effort. Thanks for all those who came and participated, we learned a lot about each other and what we are doing 55 years after graduation.

Just a note to all those who may be in the area: If anyone is close to Jordan Park and just want to stop by (you can stay in your car) and say hello . . . using COVID-19 precautions feel free to do so. Have a great rest of the summer. Steve
