I hope we can all get together in the spring and have even more of our family there. Thanks to Jim Gilbert and others for getting us all there. Love ya all  (Luv2bombball at

 I just wanted to let you know I had a great time at the Rostone Reunion at ArrowHead Bowl today.
I have been living in Florida for the last eight years and was not aware of these reunions until I moved back to Lafayette in Sept.

My daughter found out about it in the newspaper and called me. Anyway, I enjoyed getting to visit with the old gang.
I want to thank all those in charge of putting this event on. I plan on coming to them again.

Yes, please add my information to your website. I would love to hear from any of the Rostone Family.
