765TRSBREUNIONSEPT.T6-2A,20A9 SNVERDALE BEACH HOTEL BREMERTON,WA.

Dear fellow 765 ers. We three Kalans are well and happy to be home againin Nevada. We made a trip to Illinois, by cat, inMarch. Dan was the confirmation sponsorto his youn gz"d cousin Ken. It furned out to be a nice family reunion. The weather though, was cold and rainy off and on. We couldn't wait to get back to our Nevada home. While we were back in Illinois, Ron and Marlene Torii arrangeda mini reunion with them and Elmer and Joan Wilke and the 3 of us. We had a really good visit and lunch at our favorite Lithuanian restauranton Chicago's south side. What made the whole trip extra tough was that Bob had to do all the driving. I haven't driven since we moved here and Dan's doctor won't let him drive, at least for now. So, Bob had to brave it and do all the driving, he's such a good guy! The committee on the Washington reunion are working feverishly to get all of the details done by the time that I get this newsletter ready to send out. I would like to include all of the details in this newsletter rather than wait until June; (the next newsletter.) I have a couple of letters in here , (from the Rothfuss' and Harris') They sent me these for the December newsletter but I got them a couple of days after I mailed out the newsletters,so, the holiday greetingswill be carried over to be Easter greetings. Audrey didn't mention why Dan couldn't drive. He had seizureson new years day andFeb 9tr. The one in Feb. lasted over 20 minutes and kept him in the hospital}days for tests etc. Found no reasonfor them other than the old head injury, and gave him more meds. to take. Hope to seeyou all in Wash.

Our Best Wishes and Hugs Audrev. Bob and Dan

My neighbor was attempting to build a patio for the first time. He boughtl00 cement blocks. Laying them out in a pattern, he discoveredthe chosenareawas too small. He stackedthe blocks against the house and clearedmore space.The next day he put the cement blocks down, only to find the ground was too hard to keep the patio level. He ordered a truckload of sandto be delivered the following morning.Again he stackedthe blocks against the house. Observing all this I said "are you going to put your patio away every night?"

Eulogy Hugh "Hoot" Kienenberger December29, 2008 Dodson High School Gymnasium Presentedby daughter Linda Kienenberger Our precious dad, grandpa,pdp&,brother and friend, Hugh Allen Kienenberger left this earth to be with his heavenly loved ones on December 19. The manner in which he left this world for the next was beautiful. He simply went to sleep and in his dreams slipped from his body to join his soul mate on the other side. I'm sure she had lunch ready for him. He knew that it was time; thx his work on Earth was done and he could be reunited with his beloved wife and son. The Hoot we all know and love led his life in a way that we would all do well to emulate. During his working yearso was a farmer, rancher and welder to name a few. He was the type he of man who loved working outside in the sunshine,rain or wind, using his skilled hands and tough work ethic to get the job done and get it done right. He was a man of the earth and spent a good portion of his life working the land. Years of working outside had etched smile lines into his face and given him a weatheredlook, the look of a man who wasn't afraid of a little dirt or sunburn in his quest to provide for his family. He called Phillips county home for most of his life and he and mom were familiar and welcome fixtures of the community. He was very close to his family and many are happy to call him a friend.

I)ad's true joy was his family. Casey and I were the light of his life, and he was a steady and reliable father who was always there when he was needed. He was head over heels in love with his grandchildren His face just lit up when they were around him, and his quiet love drew children to him like a magnet. He *as such a huge part of our lives. We will seehis wise face when we stop to enjoy the firey colors of a blazing sunset,gaze on rows of thriving crops or hear the bawl of a newblrn calf. He will be there whenever anyone cracks open a cold one2has a chocolate cake with lunch, or takes the time as he did to truly enjoy family and time spent together. We all have lessonsto learn from this quiet precious man who left us only to be with his Virginia. Together they watch over us now, everyday...guiding our choicesand keeping us warrn and safe. itrey are not truly gone becausein our hearts they will live forever, and no one will ever find two more loving and protective guardian angels. From the clouds of Heaven they ' will continue to watch ,x urd love us fiercely from now until the day we seethem again. Dad's life on earth has ended, and there is no better way to honor his memory than to keep it alive and to love and care for those left behind. His family and friends will need strength and comfort in the coming days as we strive to reconcile the ache in our hearts with the knowledge that he is at rest and ut p*u** after a long and wonderful life. We can rejoice knowing that at last, his physical battles are over. In the kingdom of his father, his tired body has been healed andknit together soundly. No more will he wheeze when he breathes,struggle to have enough air or drag iftut long oxygen tubing from room to room, tetheredto it unwillingly. No more does he have to walk slowlyand carefully, no more doeshi tire easily; no his blue eyes are now clear and his stride is confident as he joins his Virginia and Caseyfor a long walk through the gardens of Heaven. There is no doubt in my mind that dad would have followed mom even sooner had he not been concerned about me. He stayed long enough to comfort me and start me down the healing road after mom's passing. We had many long talks, sharingmemories,laughter and tears as we tried to reminisce a lifetime of love squeezedinto a handful of human years. That last precious month together gave me a chance to spend some time alone with dad-sharing meals, caring for him, nghting back tears as I watched as I watched him wander around in a haze of grief and shock, pining u*uy for his love. I think he remained long enough to seeme gain back som.estrength and be comforted by all of you gatheredhere today. Only when he was sure that I would be okay did be finally stop fighting and let himself be welcomed home. Christmasthis year has taken on a whole new meaning. It is with bittersweetjoy that I bid dad goodbye. He will be truly missed. Yet he is with us still. . .in the twinkling lights of Christmas ir.es and in prayers whispered before bed. No gift in fancy paper of shiny ribbon will ever mean more than the gift we were given in the life of Hugh Allen Kienenberger. He was like Christmas morning every day of my life. God took extra time on that precious man and broke the mold as soon as he was finished. Dad was destinedto be one of a kind. . .one of those incredibly loving people who like shooting stars streak through our lives so brilliantly, yet so rarely. He was a gilt to uit of us, and the legacy of love he leaved behind will keep his spirit alive long after his ashes are scattered. He is with us still. God Bless that wonderful man. He left some big boots behind for us all to strive to fill.

Dear Audrey, Bob and Dan, I hope this note finds you all doing well. We got the news letter, loved it. Especially the picture on the front. I apologize for not getting somenews of the Savilles. I sent you a letter and Christmas card last Christmas and then in January-(atthe end) it came back-no street number-I think that letter got a pretty good trip for 41 cents. Sorry. We are still plugging alone, Shirley in a walker at home and a wheelchair elsewhere. Calvin has to do the cooking, laundry and shopping. We do have a lady who cleansfor us. In 2008 we celebratedour 50ft wedding anniversary,the children hosted a reception for us and it was a really nice day. We are pleasedthat we are still able to be at our home-Calvin still takes care of the lawn and had a smaller garden. We really miss coming to the reunion, miss seeingeveryone. Hope we will be able to come againsometime I don't think we can make Washington, but maybe another one someday. Our health is not a big problem, Shirley's mobility and eyesight are not good, but we feel pretty good. You all take care,keepup the good work, we'll try to stay in touch.

Calvin& Shirley

April 11, 2009 Hi Bob, We finally have a plan for the 2009,765th reunion in Bremerton,Washingtonand are very excited about it. The hotel is beautiful and can be viewed at www.silverdalebeachhotel.com. We have arrangedarate of $83 plus taxanight which is a greatrate that they extendedbecause you are veterans. They wanted me to expressthat they are honored to have you there. To make your reservations, please call 1-800-544-9799or to call directly to the hotel 1-360-307-7621and be sure to tell them you are with the 765th to guaranteeyour rate. The room rate will be held only until August 17th. Any reservations made after that date will have dependon the hotel's occupancy and the regular rate at that time. My contact person is a very nice man named Mario Calderon,and can be reachedat the direct number to the hotel listed above. Dick has also arrangedsomefun for everyone. Below is the schedulefor the reunion. As you can seethere will be free time for thosewho like to spreadout and explore their own interests. There is a shuttle offered ata low rate that runs from the hotel to Seattlefor those that want to explore. Our suggestionfor thoseflying to the reunion is to land in Seattleand take the shuttteif you would rather not rent a car. Kitsap Air Porter leavesthe airport every hour at 20 minutes past the hour. You must reseryeyour spot with the shuttle service for your return trip to the airport.

On an additional note, there area few of us leaving on Saturday,September19thfor a cruiseto Alaska. We decided to extend our vacation for anotherweek and would love to have anyone that wants to join us to pleasemake your reservations and come along. We will be on Holland Cruise Lines. The name of the ship is the Amsterdam. This is a sevenday cruise and will be leaving from and returning to the port in Seattle. As I mentioned,we will depart on Saturduy,September19tr and return on Saturday,September26th Shuttle . affangements can be made to take people from the ship back to the airport on the 26th. We will be visiting Juneau,Alaska, a Hubbard Glacial Cruise, Sitka, Alaska, Ketchikan, Alaska, Victoria, Canadaand then debark back in Seattle. Due to the fact that we stop in Canada,a valid passport is needed. Those of us going have usedmy AAA travel agent,Janet. She is making the arrangements that will allow us all to be on the samecabin floor and also on the samedining schedules.Shemay be reachedat 513.361.7522 and can answerany questionsyou may have. Just be sureto give her my husband'sname (Perry Schneider)to pull up the trip. We would really love it if everyone came along for the fun. This is all the information that I have for now. The next newsletter will contain the sign up sheet to include a cost for the tours and the banquet. As it standscurrently, the total price will be below our norrnal expenses which I believe is a very good thing. Pleasedo not hesitateto make the hotel reservations though, because that gives us a betterway to determinethe size of buses and break down the cost per person. As always,anyonewith questions welcometo call me. My home numberis 513.648.0351 is and my cell is 513.608.0259. I wish you all a blessedand enjoyablespring! Sheryl Schneider
