Looking for a Lost Friend
I am searching for
This blog post is
not very art related, but it is the only way I can think
to get this to show up in the search engines. I lost touch with a
dear friend many years ago and have tried several times to find her
by using the internet.
I want to see her
again and find out what she has been doing. And I want to fill her in
on what I have been doing. She doesn't know I have gone to college, I
am an artist, a great grandmother, and a better and happier person. I
miss her. I want to know if she is still alive and where she is.
If anyone knows
anything, PLEASE let her and me know! And please share this on
Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Twitter, everywhere.
Here is what
information I have to share:
* We met in Cannon
Beach, Oregon about 1990. I was working in a small bookshop 'Ecola
Square Books' and she worked in Cannon Beach Book Company.
* Kaye Alene was near my height of 5'-1”, thin, and had ash blond hair. She was
maybe a few years older than me (I am 59 now) but don't remember.
* About 1991, I
moved to Salem, Oregon and Kaye moved to the Portland area. We
visited each other a few times.
*She had a father
there who had passed away and she had a brother, but I do not
remember their names. 'Charles' comes to mind but I may be wrong.
* Kaye Alene
finished at a teaching school in Portland on June 14, 1994. I do not know
* In 1994, she moved
to Washington DC. We wrote a few times and I sent her photos of my
new granddaughter. I have a letter (1994) from her with the return
address and phone number. She was living in a small apartment on NW
42nd St. The letter was a 'form letter' she sent to a few
friends and mentioned possibly going to Brazil to work in a friend's
ESL school. She wrote a note on mine asking me to come see her. I
* We also spoke on
the phone a few times. The last, Kaye said she was going to Boston
for a job. She was an English and Literature teacher and was working
on women's literacy projects.
Then an ugly
marriage and my life fell apart and I lost touch with her. I tried to call
the next year but it was a wrong number.
I am fairly good at
researching and finding people, but this one has me stopped. I find a
few names that might be related but I cannot find out for sure.
Kaye... if you are
out there... I love you my friend and would love to know how you are!
