Sadly we report that classmate Jody (McBroom) Tapp passed away Saturday 7/15/06 with her family by her side. While we are saddened by her passing there is comfort in knowing that her pain and suffering is now gone. For that we are thankful.
Married Harold Tapp on Nov.3, 1957. We
have been married for 38 1/2 years. Yes,
that is a long time. Moved to Texas
in 1960 then over to New Mexico in 1972. We
have 4 children and 15 grandchildren ... a bunch.

CAREER AND SPOUSE’S CAREER
I am still Postmaster at White's City, N.M.
I am on my 23rd year here. This
post office is near the Carlsbad Caverns. and Come and see the Caverns and see
me. Harold works for an organization called Carlsbad Assoc. for Retarded
Citizens as ground maintenance and supervisor of utilities.
He has been there for the last ten years.
The last 3 he just built a camp ground and Challenge Course.
PLANS FOR RETIREMENT
I guess I will probably retire in about 10 years. I hope to do some traveling and climb some more High Points.
I don't know when Harold will retire or what he plans on doing.
My hobbies are bowling, canning, arts & crafts, hiking and spoiling
grandchildren. I have a goal of
trying to see how many High Points in the U.S. I can hike. I have 7 under my belt now. I
also hold the record for being the oldest to complete all of the elements on
this challenge course. I challenge
you to come and try it.
God has been very good to us. We have very healthy children and grandchildren and we are too as far as we know now.
