JA: But your husband continued in his civic involvements. Can you describe some of the things that he did?

MH: Oh yes. He loved to volunteer for everything you can think of. He was every officer you can think of, in all the PTAs. We were in the PTA for eighteen years, from my (oldest) one up, and he was either president, vice president, and on the board. Every school he was on the board someplace somewhere, and so he loved to do all that and that was his thing. And so I'm glad he did. He was the speaker of the family and I always did the backup work for him, in those PTA activities. And we had great big dinners that the PTA put on and sponsored. And we did a good job and we made a lot of money for all the Sammamish High School PTA and the Bellevue High PTA and things like that he enjoyed. And then, he originated the Bellevue Boys Club, which he started, and because my oldest son was playing baseball, football for the Bellevue Boys Club, so he figured he better organize something like that so he helped organize that. But I regret that he was not able to see the new building built. He died before the building went up, new one. He was working on the old one at that time. But those are the things he enjoyed doing.
