Don:  Hope you are shooting a lot of hoops and making them all because you never missed many in the neighborhood pickup games.  Keep a slot open for me, as I need a great deal of practice.  

Your friend,

Sad to see Don Braum's name on the list of classmates we've lost. I got to know Don and his delightful sense of humor during our senior year while sitting across from him in world history class. I had always thought Don was shy - but the class was so boring that, after a few weeks of exchanging daily eye rolls as Mr. Bielke picked up the textbook and started reading, we began to write notes. Most days we spent the whole hour crafting written arguments about Hostess Banana Flips versus Li'l Angels - the faults and merits of each. Don was a Li'l Angel fan and I preferred Banana Flips. We would each write a page extolling our favorite and criticizing the other, then we'd exchange notes, do a rebuttal and exchange again. I wish I had saved the notes. I looked forward to that stupid class every day because Don's notes were so funny. I've thought about him over the years and wondered what happened to him. I hope he had a wonderful life.

I fondly remember how he invited me to spend time with him and his family one weekend in Belgium. Being a lonely new intern in a foreign country, this gesture meant a lot. So sorry to hear of his passing.

Duane Johnson - May 1st, 2016
Viv moved to Richfield from NE Mn about 1960.  She and I were 'set up' (I believe by Bill Davis?) to attend the prom together.  We had a good time and ended up at Lake Nokomis Beach house at sunrise by a police officer tapping on my windshield.  That day we went to Battle Creek Park with others.  After graduation I went in the Army and Viv eventually got married as did I when I got out of the army in '65.  Then, one day I got a msg via Facebook asking if I was the Duane she knew.  That began a 2yr friendship via emails and Facebook posts.  We planned to one day get together for lunch and meet but her untimely death ruined that.  We had fun, shared many stories and found out that thru the years we probably passed each other in St Paul as we visited some of the same streets, businesses.  Weird.   RIP old friend.
