Eric van Gestel reports on a challenging year. He was diagnosed with breast cancer (rare in males), had a mastectomy, and at the time of this report was undergoing chemotherapy. He fully intends to attend our 60-year reunion (in 2044), so let’s send positive thoughts his way. He has found that going through this process has renewed his motivation to do something positive. To that end, he founded CrisisGuard, Inc., a provider of services that help families, individuals, and businesses prepare for and mitigate crisis events. The company’s flagship product, eProfile, will help find missing children faster. The company is going out for one round of funding this summer before launching. * In response to the Boston Marathon bombing, Jeff Nottonson composed a song titled “Boston Strong.” This was the first time he put one of his own songs on YouTube, and he hopes it will prompt him to begin exposing his songs to the public more often and thus propel him to become a freelance songwriter one of these years. You can find his performance of “Boston Strong” on YouTube.com. * Sarah Jane Lund lives in Montgomery, Ala., where she enjoys that it never snows so she can golf year-round! When she’s not golfing, she spends her time working out five days a week, working at Costco, keeping in touch with family and friends, and being active in her church, Vaughn Forest. * Planning is underway for our 30th reunion next June. Class president Dana Hanley is looking to build a committee to help with basic planning and to build enthusiasm for reuniting on the Hill. Watch for news from him soon. Mark your calendar for June 5-8, 2014, and plan now to return to Colby for an unforgettable weekend. * That’s all the news from the Class of 1984. Please keep the notes coming.
