Seems like we had a lot of twins in our class.  How many did we have?  How does it compare to other classes?  Anyone ever ask the same question?

There were seven sets of Twins in the class of 1975.

Hey Irm, Do you remember who the other 6 were?

Irm Oberhuber (Hess)

Yes. I know all of them. I need to dig out my yearbook to remember some names. I will do that soon. ;-)

Looking through the list of Classmate Profiles, I found 5 pairs of names that I'm quite certain are twins.  There are some others of which I am not so certain.  I will leave those for Irm to identify.  Did we have any boy/girl twins?

Thanks Chris.  If you"re the 6th set of twins & Irm said there were 7, who's missing from the list?  (I really wish I had purchased a yearbook during at least one of my years in high school.)

A Boy named Bruce and his Sister. They lived out on the winding road that went east from the Drive-In.

Bonnie & Bruce VanBuren.  That was one of the pairs of names I thought might be twins but I wasn't sure.

Bonnie and Bruce weren't twins...he failed a grade.

Thanks Lolly!  So did we have any more twins in our class or did we only have 6 sets?  It's rather interesting, with only 50+ classmates registered, it looks like there were 4 sets of twins born.  Twins may be more common than I thought.  It just seemed like we had a high number in our class as a percentage

I was just notified yesterday that Bob Eppel passed away on April 8th due to complications from Alzheimer's.  His children and sisters were with him.  A memorial service is being held for him this Friday where he lived in Minnesota.

Rest In Peace, Bob.  You will be greatly missed.

So very sad...Bob was a truly nice guy, always happy to see you! I will miss him, but I know he's in a better place.

Just read about Bob Eppel and His dying from Alzheimer's. I knew His Sister, Linda.

So very young. Condolences to all of His Family.

That is sad. I knew him from kindergarten. They lived near Valley View School. Our thoughts and prayers to the family.

I was so sorry to hear Of Bob Eppel's passing, Like Judy noted, there was a large group of us that were in school together since kindergarten through Senior High and we will miss him. I remember him as always being cheerful and ready to help in any way. My condolences to his family and friends for their loss.

Trying to add a picture to my profile but it's not working.  Anyone else having trouble or been successful in adding pictures?  I have tried using both IE11 & the latest Firefox, but no luck.  -Ed 

Update: Don't know what the problem was but I was successful about a week later - doing exactly the same thing that wasn't working the previous week!
