I miss him he was a wonderful person
Thomas Hughes - July 26th, 2014
I met Jim when we were both students at Seattle Central Community College in the mid '70's. We were both Advertising Art students. We stayed close until his passing several years ago. He spoke often of his time at Ballard High. He loved football and his friends from that time.
I miss him.

Linda Alvares

Birth Date: 1948-04-23
Deceased Date: 2015-09-04
Our family is saddened to announce that Linda passed away peacefully this morning. With the tender love of her husband and son right by her side, she felt comfortable to continue her journey into the afterlife. Her passing came quick and as a shock to us all.  She was diagnosed with Liver Cancer in the later part of August, and it quickly spiraled out of control. We feel blessed with the wonderful care she received by the medical industry and every attempt was made to avoid this.

She is survived by her loving husband, a beautiful sister and brother-in-law, three amazing children and their wonderful spouses, seven spunky grandchildren, many nieces/nephews and cousins, and a whole world of friends.

Linda is an amazing person, with a heart full of joy and happiness. Her smile and warming hug, would shed any gloom from the day. She will be greatly missed by all.

Though the hand-written cards have stop, the beautiful memories will go on

 The word used over and over to describe Joannie at her memorial service was "lovely." She was also gracious, gentle, and courageous. I miss her clarity, her vibrancy, and the joyful sound of her laughter: hers was a dear and cherished friendship dating back to our childhood. I know my life has been blessed to have known her.

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to drop everyone a note regarding Joan\'s funeral service.  It was very very nice and well attended.  Many friends and family spoke about Joan and at times had the audience laughing and laughing. 
Her boss from Virginia Mason started it all by telling us what exactly Joan\'s job was at the hospital.  I had no idea how stressful and delicate her work was.  She interviewed and tested patients with  brain damage and reported back to the doctor who decided how to treat the patient largely due to Joan\'s test results and intuition.  He said that many patients told him to thank the test lady for helping them get through the 6 hours of testing.  First thing I thought of was  - it sure takes a special person to be able to do this kind of work - and Joan was that special.  She helped many many people get through a difficult time in their lives.  And all this while she was going through the most difficult time of her own life. 
Love was shown by the stories told of the times spent with Joan and her family.  Early growing up in Ballard to when her kids were little and on to working and being a grandma.  One story I want to share with you that was so funny.  Apparently when her son was very small he got into everything and messed up the house and Joan had a hard time getting things done.  When it came to vacuming she was always worried that because she couldn\'t hear what he was doing that he might hurt himself.  So she resolved that problem....  She put him in a backpack on her back when she vacummed!!!  Can\'t you just picture it???  We all laughed very loudly after hearing that..
There were quite a few Ballardites in attendance and a wonderful reception afterwards where people could have a bite to eat and visit.  It was a very nice send off for Joan.  We will all miss our wonderful girlfriend.

Tom was a neighbor, and classmate. I didn't know him well, but he was the first acquaintance who lost his life in Viet Nam. I have a deep respect for ALL military servicemen and women! I was very saddened to hear of Tom's death.

I remember Tom from way back in second grade at Adams Elementary School.  He, Betty Frakes and I were the only kids in the class with freckles.  Betty and I took turns having crushes on him.  His dad had been killed in the Korean War and Tommy wore a cool embroidered jacket his dad had sent him.  I can still picture him in that jacket.  Tommy died a proud Marine in Vietnam.  I visit his name on The Wall every time I'm in DC.  Sadly, his name is one line higher than I can reach.  I miss you, Tommy.  Semper Fi!
