Laurel Baker / Roosevelt High School

Dave Filer and I dated for 4 - 5 years all thru high school. He contacted me a few years ago and I hadn't heard from him since we broke up after high school. So needless to say this was such a shock to hear from him.
He was dying of LuGericks Disease and wanted to ( I am sure ) close some chapters in his life.
We had a pretty tight group of friends in high school that were inseparable.
So when Dave called me with the bad new of his disease ( which by the way was such a shock for me to hear from him after all these years ). I decided to get our old group together to honor Dave and say our final goodbyes. Dave was living in Tusan, AZ so we had to get created. I hired a photographer and video taped the whole party along with special private messages from each friend who attended my party in honor of Dave.
It touched him deeply. He died a few months later but I was able to be his ray of sunshine via the telephone after all these years of not communicating with him . We tried to talk regularly.
My husband of 27 plus years was a gem thru this all and very supportive of me being there for Dave.
This was such a blessing to me to be able to bring Joy to him in his last days.
